    With just over 42 seconds left in the game in tonight's Summer League win, Portland's Nolan Smith was fouled by Zoran Dragic. He got up, then collapsed back down. He had to be taken out on a stretcher.

    One of Portland's big guys confronted Dragic -- this is video of Royce White talking after the game. He stepped in between the two to defend Zoran.

    I think wanting no part of Royce is a reasonable position to take.

    gangsta.

    although, i'm pretty sure a suburban white boy like the portland center
    is in for a reality-check when he thinks he can punk
    zoran, who probably grew up sipping vodka and has been playing against grown men since he was a teenager.

    :grin: Well, it did end up being Zoran who caused the injury but all's good - it wasn't on purpose and Royce did the right thing given his knowledge of the situation. Great team player. This guy is a perfect facilitator, with his mentality and character.

    Loving the pick of White. He brings an element to the team that we haven't had in a few years. Very excited to see how he develops and plays this year (assuming we keep him), and gotta love the way he sticks up for his teammates, that's awesome!
