Sixers Release Royce White

White looked terrible in preseason with all the fouls and turnovers so this isn't really a surprise. At least he finally flew on an airplane.

I'm shocked as well because Vander looked really good in the preseason games that I watched...especially relative to the rest of the Sixers. Wyatt and Blue were two of their best scorers on their preseason roster...I predict this team will not even score 90 points per game this season.

White seems to be done in the NBA but I still have faith that Vander Blue will make it one day.

If only he was as dedicated

If only he was as dedicated to the game as much as he was to his Twitter account. I saw him in the preseason too and he looked like a slob who just got out of bed after months of vegging out on his couch. There was no reason for him to be that out of shape and rusty outside him being a lazy POS. I don't see why another NBA team should give him a chance. His talent isn't worth the trouble For the sake of ALL his kids, I hope he has a back up plan that pays well.

The Sixers didn't lose anything. The Rockets were paying the entirety of his contract and I heard that they were more interested in the rights to that Turkish prospect, Furkan Aldemir, than they were in White.

Hm.

That's too bad, but not suprising for White. He burned a lot of bridges on his tumultuous trip through the NBA.

He's looking at a lot of hard work overseas to build up good faith within front offices if he ever wants another shot at the NBA again. On the other hand, Vander Blue! Say it 'aint so!

This was a good move, he

This was a good move, he should not be in the NBA with his attitude or his below par play.

Well

Well Captain Hindsight, who knew there was gonna be so many problems back then?

He was clearly a top 15 talent in that draft.

I wonder if White amazingly

I wonder if White amazingly overcomes his fear of flying now that he needs a job. If not he could take a boat to Europe and try to find a gig there.

europe? this free fall of his

europe? this free fall of his has him playing in the Philippines or something. somewhere when he can be effective by having a unique set of his skills for a player of his size. renaldo balkman was having a good scoring game there before he choked his own teammate in the middle of a game.

Pretty tough to play overseas if you're afraid to fly on a plane.

Royce in the Philippines? Lol yes they basiclly only play in 2 areanas. But the way they drive would drive him completly insane. The crush of humanity alone would trigger him.
