    New Royce White Article

    Haven't seen this posted. Picked as one of the summer league rookies who should get good minutes this year.

    Re: New Royce White Article

    good read!

    I honestly didnt understand all the hype for Thomas Robinson... He was a ok college player on a good team... I can see RW having a longer more productive tenure in the NBA..

    If by ok college player you mean first team all american and basically runner up to Anthony Davis for every major award player of the year award. Then yes he was ok.

    I agree that Robinson may have been a little "over-hyped", but I think he was definitely a lot better than an "OK College Player". I think Robinson is in the same position that Marcus Fizer was: A very good (borderline great) college player who will struggle to find a role in the NBA.

    Robinson will have a long NBA career because of his rebounding ability even if he never gets much of an offensive game.

    So i take it your 1 of 10-20 members in the TRob fan club? Sorry im just not a fan of his, and really dont see anything that jumps out to me as a "star" in the NBA.

    Look at it this way, you are starting a team from scratch and you have to take one or the other, who would you take... RW or TRob? for me its pretty easy choice.

    I don't see either as being stars in the NBA so I wouldn't start my team with either of them.

    Stating that someone will have a long NBA career puts him in the fan club? To me it's just stating an opinion that matches most NBA GM's.

    When he posts 2 reply's to my statement about how great he was in College and so on, he must have a hard on for TRob.

    I guess stating common knowledge is having "a hard on" for someone.
