Royce White Has Been Found: Headed to The D-League

The Thinkering/Royce White

 

Houston Rockets rookie forward Royce White issued a statement through his publicist declining his assignment by the Rockets to the NBA Development League.

Embattled Knicks Squeak Past Suns

J. R Smith walked on the court and looked up at the scoreboard. It said the game was tied at 97-97, and Smith knew the ball — and the game’s biggest moment — was coming to him. Smith then closed his eyes and bowed his head. He meditated.

Rockets vs. Bulls Christmas Day

The Thinkering Rockets

The Houston Rockets have become a competitive accretion team in just a few months.  Even in the absence of mentally embattled Royce White the Rockets have created a balanced squad of semi misfits. 

Let’s start with last year’s super six man; James Hardin who has become a dependable scoring machine.  Hardin is averaging in the last 10 games nearly 40 minutes and just north of 28 points. 

Secondly, Jeremy Lin the Asian sensation that showed brilliance last winter with the Knicks until he was sidelined by a knee injury.  This season Lin’s numbers are more average than impressive but  there are a few intangibles like energy and hustle Lin brings to the table.  He is also the synergy guiding force the glue that cohesively holds the Rockets in place. 

If there was such a thing as the Rockets big three, the last leg would be Chandler Parsons.  Parsons, holds steady with just fewer than 15 points per game and 6 and a half Rebounds.

Where is Royce White Now?

 

Royce White has publicly voiced his concerns over the lack of synergy with the Rockets because of a chronic case of fear of flying.  He is scheduled to return to the rockes afer a two month absence.

Details are sketchy at this point and we don't know in what capacity White will be training with the team, but this is obviously a very good development for the Rockets and White. If they can get White back in the gym, practicing with the team, this year won't necessarily be a lost for both parties.

It will be interesting to see if the arrangements between the Rockets and White change, as White has repeatedly been expressing his concern with a lack of protocol with regard to his situation.

Suzy Favor Hamilton Vegas Prostitute

 

Three-time Olympian runner Suzy Favor Hamilton has admitted leading a double life as an escort.

She apologized Thursday after a report by The Smoking Gun website said she had been working as a prostitute in Las Vegas.

The 44-year-old Favor Hamilton lives in Madison, Wis. The Smoking Gun said she has been working for the last year for an escort service.

Soon after the story appeared online, Hamilton released a series of tweets saying in part that she was "drawn to escorting in large part because it provided many coping mechanisms for me when I was going through a very challenging time with my marriage and my life."

A middle-distance runner, Favor Hamilton competed for the U.S. at the Olympics in 1992, 1996 and 2000 but did not win a medal. She won seven U.S. national titles.

Tim Tebow Seeks New Football Home

 

Tebow, who has clearly been frustrated with his role on the Jets this season, spoke of the team in the past tense on Wednesday. Having only played 70 offensive snaps with the teams this season, Tebow appeared at a loss as to why the Jets traded for him in the first place:

"Obviously, I'm a little disappointed ... All you can ask for, all you want is a chance -- a chance to go out and play the game you love and help this team win football games," he said. "That's all I wanted. I tried to make the most of every opportunity I had. I would've loved to have had more."

Jets head coach Rex Ryan had originally planned to use Tebow in a Wildcat package. However, he acknowledged on Wednesday, insisting that Tebow's trade was not forced on him by ownership, that things had not worked out as they had hoped:

"For some reason, it hasn't panned out to my expectations -- and maybe not Tim's, either," said Ryan.
