HB played in the CCL as a high school kid. Royce is 2 years past high school and is bigger than everybody else. HB has scored 40 points in a college game. Royce has never scored in a college game. I think Royce will be a great college player who doesn't project super high on draft boards.

You had me up until the part where we have to ignore HB dominating AAU - I'll add the McD's All-American Game and getting his team a 2 seed in the NCAA tournament this year. He's a top 3 pick and the original question was obviously the result of alot of drugs and heavy drinking on the OP's part.
With that said, I really think Royce is going to be great for us.
lets hope this is a hawk fan messing with us, I mean this post is ridiculous...
For the people using Fizer as a comparison, I agree that he had lots of holes in his game.
But the biggest problem he had was that he was drafted by the Bulls right after they had the rookie of the year in Brand at the same position.
They absolutely choked on that pick. Had another team, that didn't have their franchise player at the same damn position, would have picked Fizer, he would have had many more opportunities to play.
Now he still couldn't guard anybody, and he had a lot of attitude problems, but he was playing well at the time that he hurt his knee. But he was severely handicapped by the fact that the Bulls were the most dysfunctional franchise
I'll add to it that many posters have stated where HB would have gone in this summer's draft. Keep in mind that this was one of the worst draft classess in a long time.
its obviously Royce he's easily going top 3 next year. I mean he's proven himself in the gauntlet that is the CCL. I mean come on going against some HS players as well as a few d3 players obviuosly White has proven himself to NBA GMs everywhere. What is the ACC is that some sort of mid-major joke!
Gotta wait till midpoint of the season. So Barnes as of now.
The real question is who wins in the tourney...cyclones>tarheels
I think it is officially time for a big fat BUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you guys ready to have this conversation yet?
