brian roberts didn't cost us the tenth pick of the draft when we could have gotten a few other SG, a pretty decent center in zeller, or even used it as trade bait. we all know rivers was a MAJOR project, we just never expected it to be this much. I always thought we picked him because his dad is buddy buddy with monty. but hey, tell me i'm wrong in 3 years when he's great. until then, I'm gonna criticize him to hell because a shooting guard hitting what, 53.7% of free throws has got some serious issues. shaq for his career hit 52.7% to compare

quote: I watched the Royce White special on HBO Sports. He makes it sound like he would be willing to play and travel as long as the Rockets use an independent doctor. Seems like both sides are letting their pride get in the way and no one is willing to budge.
I saw that too.
He is immensely talented, and I would love to seem him here, but he could be a huge distraction for a team who seems to have good locker room chemistry.
