In an interview with season ticket holders, Rockets GM Daryl Morey apparently didn't mince words when it came to the 2012 first-round selection of former Minnesota prep standout Royce White -- who started his college career with the Gophers but never played here before flourishing for a year at Iowa State.


Said Morey:

I take some sort of pride that you could argue that Royce White is the worst first-round pick ever. He’s the only one that never played a minute in the NBA that wasn’t just a foreign guy staying in Europe. It just shows we swing for the fence."

Is that really fair to say given White's public battle with anxiety?

Your thoughts, please, in the comments.
