    That was great. What a roller coaster of emotions for him right before he was picked.

    Pretty epic. Very good from cinematic, personal, and basketball angles.

    -We saw Royce walking the Vegas strip at night in the same hat and suit. I think they might be the only hat and suit he owns. :)

    - So... Royce White is the Kevin McHale homeboy pick (buddies with Hoiberg)? "The rest of the room is against you"? I don't know how much info the agent has, though, since he got the pick wrong (16th and not 18th).

    sooo this video is basically saying we drafted Royce White too high....? Apparently since every other team said they were out. :confused:

    The video implies that he deserved to be drafted even earlier than 16. He is just humble and grateful to get a shot at his NBA dreams.

    Looks to me like Royce just isn't trill enough.

    yea, you are absolutely right. Again I am glad to have Royce White on the team, and I really do hope Mchales decision pays off since he does know PFs very well.

    Royce White is definitely a moneyball player. High variance player, undervalued by the market. Exactly who you want to get with a middling pick. If he can keep his **** together, he might turn into a serious player.
