    houston rockets: draft day losers

    Fox Sports Ohio

    no real slam on royce, but not good publicity nonetheless.

    i think he would have been better off going elsewhere. although he'll get more money from #16, it would have likely been a better basketball situation to go to a program that can win next year.

    That guy has no clue what he's talking about. The Thunder thrive on teamwork? Seriously? They have an awful assist rate and play crap defense. Damiem Lillard and Meyers Leonard went in the right spot? Are you kidding me?


    It's all snark from here on out

    You take 3 of the more athletic players in the draft in White, Lamb and Jones...young guys with skill and heart...and somehow that's a failure? Rockets are just P.O.'d that Dwight Howard deal fell through...they want a superstar to make them feel better. What they don't realize is they just drafted one ;-)

    DON'T LISTEN TO ANYTHING THIS GUY SAYS! I have to watch him for Cavs games sometimes and first off he's a tool and second off he is the least knowledgeable person on that whole damn Fox Sports Ohio team. DISREGARD THIS GUY!

    Who the hell is the guy the Cavs took early? Saw a couple of dumbfounded tweets on that one.

    Royce will get minutes in Houston but not as many as some people think. They already have some depth at his position and he'll be fighting for minutes from Patrick Patterson, Louis Scola, Marcus Morris, and his fellow draftee Terrence Jones.

    Dion Waiters. Syracuse 6th man. Hey, when you get the chance to take a backup SG at 5, you have to do it.

    The Cavs are the Cavs and this is why LeBron left. They have no clue what they are doing.

    Myers Leonard did. But taking Damien Lillard over Austin Rivars is awful IMO

    Re: houston rockets: draft day losers

    Does this Ohio guy's anger mean that he really wanted Royce in Cleveland and has to cover his trail now?


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

    Not to mention he will be coached by one of the best bigg men to ever play the game, someone who will maximize his talents. I actually think he will make the All-Rookie team.

    McHale is the best teacher in the game. He will make RW into an NBA Stud!
