    Motivation and direction (in basketball) were always the issue for Royce. When he was bought in and motivated he was as good as anyone in the country in his age group.

    Off the court he has made some major missteps, some of which have come to light and some that haven't. I've heard enough from really credible people about his time at ISU that I can't support him on or off the court.

    And in the Star Tribune here this morning. Also gotten mentions on the local stations covering all of this.

    Guess they will have the Washington Post piece in the Star Tribune soon. They have an exchange thing between the papers which allows the Strib to get D.C. federal and world coverage while focusing their reporters regionally. It's a good model and has kept the Strib alive and well as a major paper.

    I'd give my left nut, and your left nut, and someone's left ovary to have talent to piss away.

    Hard to walk the line on the topic between cave and non cave here, but I think Royce has the intelligence, ability to articulate thoughts and personality to be a positive leader for a cause that is in need of some leadership.

    That is as long as he keeps focused and doesn't go off into the weeds on vague side topics.

    He's made it about ****** and ***** based on the article. It's intellectually lazy to blame hundreds of years of bad policy, bad politics, corruption and pandering at one man's feet.

    I appreciate that Royce is trying to help make some positive changes in the community, but I struggle to support him in a leadership role in this situation. As mentioned by others, he has difficulties with direction, motivation, focus and responsibility at times.

    This event was perfect for Royce. If George Floyd was known to be struggling with mental illness, then that would have been over the top for Royce.

    Thankful for everything Royce did for ISU basketball, but I've really lost any interest in him over the years. Seems like a it's never my fault excuses excuses excuses kind of person. Oh, and listening to him speak is almost unbearable. I couldn't even finish listening to the podcast he did with CW a few years back, listening to him drone on about nothing gave me a migraine. He just seems like he goes thru life looking for something to complain and struggle against.

    There have been plenty of posts ITT about Royce as an ambassador, the appropriateness thereof, his career since ISU, and any other number of topics appropriate for the *checks thread location* MEN'S BASKETBALL forum.

    He was as amazing passer. It's hard to easily find a ton of footage, but dude was no slouch with the ball.

    F: A suit without a belt isn't proper if it has belt loops, but it's Royce so it will pass.

    Right, he wanted to push a valuable message but as a nobody. All he had to do was play and keep his head on straight and he could have helped his cause a lot.
