There’s an interview with Houston Rockets’ rookie Royce White, who we have been keeping track of almost daily because of his mental health issues. He goes deeper into his issues. I have a better understanding now of what he went through but the protocol was still not specified.

Waiting For Next Year has a nice piece about the Cavs’ rebuilding process. It’s being slowed right now because of the weak draft classes. But they still think they’ll be all right; they just don’t have as much time to work with.

Behind The Buck Pass takes a look at what basically led to the demise of Scott Skiles’ coaching job in Milwaukee.

Greg Wissinger of Sactown Royalty breaks down the Sports Illustrated Interview of the Kings’ DeMarcus Cousins. At least, Cousins seems to be aware of what’s going on although there are still things to be worked out. Also, he wants to stay in Sacramento so that’s good news for Kings fans.

Complex puts together Twitter reactions of the Carmelo Anthony/Kevin Garnett confrontation from last night. There is some vulgar language in that link. You have been warned.

In TMZ, the Denver Nuggets’ Ty Lawson was asked about the Lakers. But I mean, come on, the Lakers are 15-18; of course, they’re pretty bad right now. Of course, when Lawson was asked about the Clippers, his take on them was completely the opposite of the Lakers. Thanks for the hat tip, @illastrate.

There’s a parody video asking other teams to take Pau Gasol off the Lakers.

In the same vein, Raptors HQ has an Andrea Bargnani TV offer.
