    Excellent news. Rooting for White to get to the floor. I'm okay if its not rushed. Do it right. Take it slow. Do it right. Work through what needs to be worked through.

    Really could have been using him. With his skills, he'd easily be our best player off the bench.

    Considering how much PT Terrence Jones gets, I wouldn't expect Royce to get any at all other than garbage time unless injuries occur at that PF position.

    I'm just reserving my oppinion. If the guy turns into a great player I don't want to look like too big of an ass for ragging on him now. I'm a Rockets fan so obviously the best thing would be for him to turn into a hall of fame player and have a long career filled with NBA championships here in Houston.

    "i want to play for the rockets more than anything" comes out his mouth....

    but you know in his head he's humming "all i want for xmas is my 2 front tweet, my 2 front tweet, then i could wish me #merryxmas"

    Don't really care. He is not as good as Jones, DMo, Morris or Patterson.

    Fat, undersized, poor defending, poor shooting and mentally ill power forwards are not in demand.

    White >>>> TJ

    White has one of the most unique skill sets we've ever seen. He can play 3 and 4 regularly. He's a more athletic Lamar Odom AND better ball handler.

    Once he learns the playbook and adapts, I expect White to be a very good player when he peaks.

    That's good. In the end I want the Rockets to succeed. I'm not a fan of White's attitude. I think he's going at his issues in the wrong way but whatever.

    He'll never come close to being Lamar Odom.

    this may be true, but he's also 2inches shorter, is a much worse shooter, and is just as dumb as odumb ;)

    He has skills, but if you saw him in summer league, you would know that he is a project that could take a long time to develop. I don't see him getting any minutes as a Rocket this season after what has transpired over the last couple of months.
