    Great article - Royce White thinks he can do it all

    Hustle & Flow | THE OFFICIAL SITE OF THE HOUSTON ROCKETS

    A couple excerpts:

    ďWhen Iím on the break or in transition or in certain spots where a pass is about to be made, Iím not really looking at any one person,Ē he says. ďI see all 10 guys and one big shape and that shape is moving. Itís slack in some places and in some places itís strong and Iíve just naturally developed a thing where Iím able to get into the weaker parts where that slack is so that one of my teammates is open. Thatís the best way I can describe it: itís like one big moving shape. If you look at one guy youíre not going to be that successful. But if you see all ten as one big moving shape then itís better.

    ďWe could say that a basketball player, a young kid eating, sleeping and breathing the sport, might help that player more basketball-wise, but life-wise it canít,Ē says White. ďYou canít tell me thatís healthy for your all-around well being to just eat, breathe and sleep one thing. If youíre not a well balanced human itís no different than if your gameís not well balanced; if you just focus on passing and you canít shoot or dribble, itís not good. If weíre giving up humanity for basketball then weíve got a bigger problem on our hands. At the end of the day, basketball is important but it canít be at the expense of the bigger picture. I think there is a way to be the best basketball player you can be and have other interests.Ē

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Re: Great article - Royce White thinks he can do it all

    Most of you people are too young to remember Magic Johnson when he first came in the NBA.

    Magic was 6ft 9 in. Weighed 220lbs +/-, he was not a scorer when he got to the league. He said "I'm not a scorer, because of the team he was on, he didn't need to score a lot of points". Now with the Rockets signing Lin, I doubt if Royce will be asked to play point guard, but I was hoping that the Rockets would really give him the ball at a point forward position and see if it could work.

    NO, I don't think Royce will be as good as Magic, but the size difference between him & the other point guards gave Magic an advantage. That advantage was nulified when the Pistons sent Rodman out to guard Magic.


    The Republicans and Democrats fighting over who should pay for the deficit, is like two drunks on the Titanic arguing over who should pay the bar tab.

    Re: Great article - Royce White thinks he can do it all

    If Royce is not traded, Royce will be an excellent inspiration to the young black fans of the Houston area. With his outside pursuits, he is sure to be a fan favorite. He is very valuable off the court compared to some of the thug lifes.
