    If you're talking about the game a couple of days ago, they said he had a strained calf.

    In an update, Vipers announce they are sending Royce White down to the E-Leage. E-league rejects the transfer and forwards him to F-league team.

    Work in general is all about being a team player. Networking and working well with other people and groups is a must for anyone in corporate America.

    Work ethic is another huge negative for White. Harden knows what it takes to be a superstar. He has been around guys like Durant, Lebron, Kobe. We have seen videos of Lin doing countless shooting drills, etc just to make it into the NBA. Thomas Robinson is a beast in the weight room. Beverly must be a hard worker. Donuts loves being in the gym. Same with Parsons. White simply does not fit the mold of our team's principles.

    I cannot wait to see this guy get cut. No team is gonna sign his candy arse.

    Are the Rockets still paying this guy? He is effectively AWOL, right?

    I heard that he had unilaterally decided to wrap it up in the valley and come back to Houston a week or two ago. In fact, he did not play in the Vipers most recent game. Here is the box score:

    So, I am still curious as to whether the Rockets are paying this guy or not. And if so, why?

    yeah, he returned to the vipers after that incident, and played in the two games against tulsa, and is now sitting due to a calf strain.

    Robinson would win by default; bench pressing causes anxiety.

    RW is a bench pressing machine. Could do 29 reps at 185 while in college. Robinson put up 15 at the combine.

    White should do that full-time then. Because basketball isn't his thing.

    This guy has to be releated to White, or White himself, because he is making all kinds of excuses, just like Joyce does.
