    Will there be a stream of that introductory press conference tomorrow?

    Oh, and great article. This was fantastic! Looking forward to next year's draft night party.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: ROYCE to Rockets: Details on a tense evening in Ames

    I actually had a good feeling that the Rockets would take Royce based on the relationship with McHale and Hoiberg and the fact that they really need lots of young talent (plus their plan to stockpile picks for Dwight Howard wasn't going to work). This could work out really well for Royce if the Rockets can follow the Thunder blueprint of finding quality players in the draft. Great franchise with a history of championships. I'm a new Rockets fan! Not sure I would have taken Jeremy Lamb before Royce White, but I'm no NBA GM. Funny that they end up on the same team. Go Royce, represent yourself and ISU well!

    I can cheer for the Rockets. Just remember that the Thunder had three top 5 picks to get where they are. The Rockets probably won't be there for a few years but I agree and I think they are on the right track.


    It's all snark from here on out
