    Saw some of scrimmage... he showed flashes. Definitely didn't have problems bringing the ball up, even under pressure. Runs like a bull. Also hit a 17-footer, which surprised me.

    Little bit of scrimmage footage with him in.

    Here he is speaking after practice (kicking myself I didn't get my question in).

    I'm telling you guys that this past weeks events will be a thing of the past once the season starts.

    Agreed. I love Royce really rooting for him. I haven't jumped off the White bandwagon at all. Clutch, what was your question & how was scrimmage.

    Royce seems to be confident. I like that. I think he'll be a great fit for the Rockets. Hope he'll overcome that flight anxiety soon.

    Way too optimistic.

    I would not trust a guy that put his team under his bus on the first day of his first job.

    Hope we'll get to see some practice footage of Royce.

    His face definitely looks thinner. Looks to be in good shape.

    Clutch, was there a noticeable difference in his body shape?

    I thought he looked thinner in that pic. Maybe he's getting ready for the back-up three spot?

    I agree, and I'm concerned that even in this interview he slips in how he has "other interests" and all this other stuff. We know all players have other interests, just like everyone has other interests outside of work, I just feel like in the case of Royce he might not be the "lay it all on the floor no matter the circumstances" type because of it.

    That said I really hope he succeeds and plays well and prove us all wrong because I just want Rockets to win another championship already.

    People looks smaller from farther away.

    Anyhow, Royce probably looked a little thinner in the video cause of those crazy compression hose or whatever it was he was wearing under his shorts.

    Tnx for that footage, jumper looks smooth and his passing and rebounding is something we could really need. I hope he turns into a Charles Barkley, with the thrash talking and all :)

    He looks like Tim Duncan with that shaved head.

    I don't really see the Sir Charles comparisons other than his body style. Royce doesn't have that athleticism or the shooting. Boris Diaw looks to be a more fair comparison.

    IDK,but if you could go back and watch the video of the Rockets visiting the policemen, Royce's face looked chubbier then. I believe that was like a month ago.

    I'm surprised the wolves weren't all over him. We all know how RA likes passing big men.

    When is our first preseason game? I see that other teams have already started.

    He probably was a little out of shape and that combined with him shaving his beard makes his face look thinner.
