    No his credibility isn't diminished at all..

    It's foolish to think otherwise.

    Yes, it has been covered. No, his credibility isn't affected.

    1. Fred likely didn't blow smoke up McHale's ***. He gave a fair assessment of the Royce he worked with pointing out both positives and negatives like any "boss" would.
    2. Fred kept Royce in line and playing basketball.

    What CyDude and Agronomist said is absolutely true, and I'd just also add that Royce is a very unique case; nobody in their right mind would think that every player from CFH's program is a risk to pull these types of shenanigans just because Royce has.

    Does anyone else continually open this thread hoping by some chance that there is finally good news in it? (but knowing it is a long shot...)

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    Does anybody think Fred hasn't called Royce up and talked to him about all of this? I think he has.

    That said... I kind of found Fred's comment in the B12 teleconference about the Royce situation telling.

    I'm thinking that would warrant a new thread. This thread is reserved for awkward tweets and facepalms.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    In the Grantland video, Royce's agent says that it is "McHale against everyone else [Rockets management] in the room." They didn't have any false notions that it wasn't risky. Seems like McHale just decided to take the risk, maybe even taking Royce earlier than even his agent thought.

    It may make Hoiberg look even better because now he looks like a magician in terms of player management.

    I keep seeing it towards the top of the forum and hoping the latest post is something good...then I check twitter and just shake my head. His Dr needs to tell him to avoid bball AND TWITTER.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    Travis Hines blog on how/why Royce said it worked at ISU:

    White talks ISU "protocol" | Ames Tribune


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    That gives very little detail. More of the same vague statements by White. Shocking.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    So it sounds like the GM is saying get out there and play your butt off, Royce and then we will see. Lucky the Rockets are playing great and McHale will remain coach for the foreseeable future.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.
    Let my Fred's Four Horsemen ride: Georges, Hogue, Nader, and McKay.
