    Obviously the kid is having some major issues. How we got him through two years is beyond belief.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    Bball is business and he should not be surprised management says when and where to play. Doctors only make their recommendations. In this case, they might say he cannot do road games, but physically the Rockets need a full time player.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    I'm happy with what he did for us and our program, but I've hit a point of apathy towards him and his cause. Everything is over-sensationalized and he's not handling any of it well.

    Thanks for the two years Royce, but not sure if I want to consider you part of cyclONEnation anymore.

    He'll be remembered well in a few years. Just like Tinsley, who was paid to stay away from his NBA team, is. It's just going to take some time.

    See Tinsley did this thing called playing basketball in the NBA. Royce hasn't done that so far.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    I'm not exactly racing to argue for his number in the rafters after this.

    What a wasted opportunity.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    Fred must for all intents and purposes be a great psychologist for how mentally unstable RW has been before and after his time in Ames

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    I dont feel sorry for him anymore. I dont know all the details, but it just seems like he never tried to compromise with the Rockets.

    Did Tinsley live up to the hopes that Cyclones had for him after he left? No, we remember Cyclones for what they did in Ames not what they do at the next level.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    Well, if Fred's coaching career doesn't pan out, we know he'd be a great Psychologist.
    How he was able to get RW to stick around for 2 years and lead us to an NCAA tourney win is nothing short of a miracle.

    Speculation:

    Fred is the primary reason how and why he prospered at ISU.

    He has found that the NBA isn't to his liking. Kevin McHale at took an extended leave of absence from Houston early on and Royce's connection through Fred was gone. By the time Kevin McHale returned, Royce had changed and he's not committed to the league.
