    It's not 100, but here's 5 Melvin Ejims for your enjoyment:

    We could use the extra Melvin Ejims as assistant coaches and to serve clone cones at Hilton.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    Not defending Royce, but for those claiming miracles or that Fred is a soothsayer for making Royce work here....remember, he had a year to adjust to the town/situation/environment where he didn't have to produce, just play some ball with the practice squad and get his stuff straight.

    The two places he was required to be productive right away (Minne, Houston), he flopped.

    That works. That helps everybody, and it gets more done than Royce and Twitter.


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

    This is essentially what I was going to come in and post. He played nice guy here, knowing he wasn't going to get a paycheck anywhere in pro basketball (NBA or otherwise) if he went full-on crazy at ISU. Went and got that paycheck and now suddenly everyone is out to get him and he acts like he should have an NBA starting position handed to him without attending camp OR practices.

    "Hey, my anxiety won't be so bad if you just start me." Oh, OK, we'll just let you start and play with 4 other guys who have extremely limited chemistry with you since you won't come to practice or talk to anyone. Nut up and check in with your D-League team and get on the ******* court.

    I'm done. I no longer associate Royce with ISU basketball.

    I don't think he used ISU anymore than ISU used him. Fred had a ton invested in Royce, he was a huge risk-reward type of player. Fred had evry reason to want him to succeed, the Rockets don't and I don't think Royce is used to being treated like an expendable player. I would be curious to know how much baby sitting Fred had to two in Royce's two years at ISU.

    I'm really curious about this as well, but we'll never know. We're just lucky he didn't implode here.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    My kids love Royce White...they have been asking about him all year long and can't understand why he won't be a Cyclone anymore.

    Royce needs to realize that although his goal was to help build awareness of mental health issues...he's probably set the mental illness community back about 50 years with all his bull ****.

    If you had reservations about hiring someone with a mental illness before...and you've paid more than 3 minutes of attention to this train wreck...I doubt there is a chance in hell you'd ever consider someone you knew had mh issues.

    I wonder if that is part of the endgame on this move. I really would have liked to see him report and get back on track.

    I'm guessing that's probably what the latest D-League assignment is about.

    Rockets probably knew he wouldn't go, but want to start to get things formally set up to show him in breach.

    Edit: What Linden said.

    If the Rockets are going to do it, I hope they do it soon. I think it would knock a little sense into Royce. At this point, unless you give him every single thing he wants (which no one is really sure of anyway, plus the demands are probably outrageous) he's probably not going to work himself back into the organization at all.

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    I cringe at the major sense of entitlement everything he says reeks of. I'm not pulling for him at this point. He's not entitled to the **** he thinks he is, and he needs to learn that the hard way apparently.

    I doubt the Rockets will sue him since ******* off the NBAPA probably isn't worth the few million they would get back.

    I feel for the rockets..if this is part of their plan, I hope it works. They shouldn't have to pay him a dime.

    Even if they don't sue him, termination of the contract is worth showing breach, in this case, I'd say.
