    You can watch a replay here......scroll down to the 2nd video. The first is just a highlight/recap video.

    NBA Development League: Toros at Vipers Game Info - April 5, 2013

    The team has a game again tonight, and then the playoffs will start next week. I believe Royce has said he will not be on the playoff squad because of the travel requirements, but that may have changed.

    Here is the link for the game tonight, "broadcast" on YouTube.com. Game is at 7 pm Central time.

    Turns out he's better than every D-league player if he gives a ****.

    missing the playoffs is not a good sign to his value proposition.

    10 of 14 from the line. Looks like he's been practicing what Fred taught him.

    He had a UConn-esque dunk at the end of the first quarter that didn't make the highlight reel

    Now if only he would try to work on his anxiety, he will be in the Association next year.

    No doubt that Royce has the talent to make it. I hope he pulls it off.

    No one is bringing a guy up who can't get through the playoffs due to traveling.

    scary thing is he still looks slower and less fit than the end of last season, yet putting up #s like that.

    Maybe Cuban will bring Griner and RW as their power front line. Those two dudes would be a force.

    I really hope Royce plays in the playoffs. It seems so ridiculously that he wouldn't. I was starting to get worried about him (again) after he collected a couple DND-CD's in recent games but at least he's showing what he can do. If for nothing else he's showcasing for other teams because I'm assuming the Rockets have moved on. They'll keep their mouth shut and give him his guaranteed money this year and next and that will be it most likely.

    Greiner - more woman than I could handle, more man than I could ever hope to be!

    Tough front line though!

    I thought the Rockets were bringing him back to Houston.

    Is this some reverse psychology thing where they tell him to go to D league and he stays home, then they tell him to come home and he starts dominating the D league?

    He brought himself back to Houston. He and the team worked something out, and they sent him back to continue in the D-League.

    He would be better than a lot of NBA players if he gave a ****.

    I cried tears of joy at this comment due to it's inappropriate-but-funny sexist humor. Nevertheless, it's good to see Royce getting it done!!!!!
