    I have to admit. When I opened this thread and did not see the poll in the first post, I was excited to call CW out on it.

    Then it was a link. Now I'm sad.

    Re: Survey Time: Will Royce White ever play in the NBA?

    Hopefully I'll be able to post these polls in the forum within the next week. Gotta do some sort of coding deal to the settings on the forum.

    On the Royce thing though, I've been thinking about this a lot today. I feel like even if he doesn't play in the league, we're still going to hear from him.

    You're telling me that there isn't some lawyer out there who wouldn't take a stand on this issue? I honestly believe that Royce will attempt take this issue all the way to the top. If it means suing the NBA for one reason or another, so be it.

    Just thinking out loud...

    Re: Survey Time: Will Royce White ever play in the NBA?

    Has he ever paid fees to the players union since he's never played? If he has somehow, and he feels like the Rockets weren't treating him medically appropriate, the union would probably have done something by now.
    Athletic unions are very powerful and I feel like they would have filed a grievance by now if something was not done according to the bargaining agreement.

    Maybe the universe was suggesting this to Royce instead?

    As long as he spends more time on Twitter than in the gym, sadly just don't see it happening. Sure he is a unique talent but lots of guys with talent are fighting to make a team and they come with so much less hassle.

    Re: Survey Time: Will Royce White ever play in the NBA?

    I think he will play, just not sure what capacity. For a long time it was difficult seeing article after article about a former Cyclone getting bad press about not playing, lashing out on Twitter, blah blah blah. In the end, he is taking a stand to do what he thinks is right, even when it is wildly unpopular amongst the masses. My embarrassment has been replaced with pride, honestly. He's not taking the easy way out and caving in to what he thinks is unfair. He's also not giving up his quest.

    I'd be lying if I didn't say that I want to see him be crazy successful in the NBA, but I don't have the heart to think that his playing days have hit a wall. Sidebar - I love his response to the question where someone asked him if he had any regrets about leaving school early. He basically said no, that would mean he disagreed with CFH's decision.

    Re: Survey Time: Will Royce White ever play in the NBA?

    Royce seems to want to play the same role that Hoiberg had for him. Not sure he can do it at the NBA level without a lot of development. I am a fan, but he is not LeBron James. It would take a lot of hard work and dedication to spend extra time with his team to be in a Point Forward leadership role. Not sure he is focussed enough on BB for that. I think he could play some role, but not sure it will lineup with his expectations.

    I am rooting for him and hope I am dead wrong.

    Any lawsuit would have to be with NBAPA not the league itself.

    Actually, I thought this made a lot of sense.

    I think he'll make it. He's still young enough that he could eat pizza for 6 straight years, and still get in decent shape without an exorbitant amount of effort. I think he comes around to medication and becomes a facilitator off an NBA bench before too long.
