    That's very fair. The only thing I really disagree with is the anxiety concerns, but everyone says that and I think they are all wrong.

    Good analysis, like others have said Anxiety will be a non issue.

    He will have to prove that to teams interested in making him a first rounder in a more personal way. It's not something they can gather from game tape.

    ISU fans followed him for two years (in a pretty obsessive way) and didn't get a single red flag so we see it differently obviously.

    In the highlights spotlighting his assists we sure threw up some bricks.

    Royce just called the guy who made this video out on Twitter. He never plead guilty to anything with stealing a laptop, yet this video said he did. I'd be pretty ****** if I was Royce too...

    I was wondering about that. I had thought he was proven not guilty.

    Not actually a mock draft, so your bitter post is...well it just comes across as bitter. Did you watch the video?

    This now has an annotation box over it with a more correct statement.

    Thorough analysis.

    Looks like a top-20 prospect to me (although I'm obviously biased, and don't follow NBA draft closely enough to know the draft projections or team needs ahead of him).

    Weaknesses seem like legit observations — although, character-wise, the Minnesota problems seem kind of under-the-bridge.

    Downsides of game-play: Fairly spot-on. You know what would've made a difference with a majority of that? Another year of college ball. (Again, yeah, selfish from ISU fan perspective :smile:)

    I wish they would have showed his coast to coast dunk on UCONN or a some of his "clutch" plays, such as the K-state jumper. But other than that, it was a very good video

    I think he surprises and goes inside the lottery group.

    I agree. But at the same time there's so many Royce highlights to choose from it's inevitable that some good ones are left out :)

    Big twitter conversation going on about Royce:

    Jason McIntyre ‏@TheBigLead
    disagree. Top 15 pick. Workout meaningless. RT @JonRothstein: ISU's Royce White...Could go anywhere from 10-30. Workouts will b pivotal

    Bill Meehan ‏@billmeehan
    @TheBigLead @JonRothstein I'd think interviews are most important for Royce.

    Jason McIntyre ‏@TheBigLead
    @billmeehan @jonrothstein I could agree with the interviews portion

    Jon Rothstein ‏@JonRothstein
    @TheBigLead @billmeehan was actually really impressed the few times I talked to Royce. Think his shooting is the biggest question.

    Jason McIntyre ‏@TheBigLead
    @JonRothstein @billmeehan the GM who takes Perry Jones instead of Royce White will be out of a job in 3 yrs

    Who actually cares about these videos? It is just for us? I don't see real NBA scouts needing this sort of information from a free public website. And if an NBA scout was paying him for this information, wouldn't they be ticked to see it on a free public website?
