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

    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.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    There has to be more to this then just the fear of flying. Royce isn't being managed well at all. If he was he'd be told the NBA owes him nothing, and the window of opportunity will soon close. This is really an unfortunate situation and it's obvious the fears Royce is experiencing requires a much more qualified sports/clinical psychologist-psychiatrist then what he is being offered or has at this time. This is certainly resolvable if Royce wants to play in the NBA bad enough. Come on Royce get your head out of your ***.

    ...I would assume there has been a conversation between Fred and Kevin regarding Royce and this situation. I would love to get some feedback from either regarding any ideas or suggestions that might have been discussed in this issue.

    ... Royce come on man do you have any idea what the F your throwing away. You could be jumping in on the Harden and Lin show right now and putting yourself in position to blow up your next NBA contract.

    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.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, 3sus, Hallice, Deonte, Dustin, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and McKaT.

    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.

    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.

    To listen to this board you'd think Tinsley was a bench warmer for a couple seasons and chronic felon.

    Outside of Hornecek he has the best career NBA stats of any player ISU (and Iowa) has ever produced. He's still cashing a check over a decade later. At this point in his career compared to Royce he had at least one triple double.

    I blame it mostly on just the general lack of knowledge about NBA basketball.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    I totally agree. He will never play one minute for the Rockets. Got his guaranteed money, and then went crazy with the anti-flying stuff. He flew last year.
