    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    Perhaps there was a reason they didn't want him around anymore. In hindsight, how they got through 2 seasons may have been a bigger miracle than we realized.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    Did he really think his pyschiatrist could protect him from the big bad NBA?

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    With all due respect - screw you Royce. Take your mental health issues, earn minimum wage somewhere you have to wear a hairnet, and argue with THEM about your mental health. Find a nice bridge and tweet until you have lost EVERY last person that saw something special in you.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    When I think of RW its mostly a "what if he stayed" like Fizer.
    Im sure his anxiety problem is serious to him. What he'll learn soon is that in the real world nobody cares about your problems. It's a job and if you can't do it then there's no use for you. I'm sure he'll get it in a few years but wasting his big chance will cost him millions.
    Also this makes Fred look like some sort of dreamy basketball wizard in my eyes. Like Bill Snyder but for basketball and super dreamy.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    Such a waste. Seems like he started acting like and expecting to be treated like a Diva before he was anybody. Hope he straightens out at some point, he's got kids to be an example for.

    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 lost respect for Royce White after the last round of this, around Thanksgiving I think. Now I don't even want to claim him as a Cyclone.


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    The most frustrating part of all of this is that whenever anyone challenges him he just responds with some variation of "you obviously don't understand mental health issues." Ok Royce, we get that you think anyone who questions you has no knowledge of mental illness. Now teach us what we don't understand instead of just parroting the same lame response over and over.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    I feel like he used ISU. Got here, nutted up for two years just so he could get his platform. Then all of sudden, he doesn't like that the NBA calls his shots and he's not super special to them. Then he tries to get playing time by saying that would help his "condition." Screw that. Give me 100 Melvin Ejims over Royce.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    If we had 100 Melvin Ejim's... We could have a new set of five guys to go after every dead ball... We would, literally, be unbeatable

    Wouldn't we run out of scholarships? Or would we use our 2016 scholarships in advance and just punt that year?


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

    Rockets should sue him for breach of contract.
