Royce is Clicking

The last couple of weeks he has been arguably our most improved player. What is it that clicked for him? He has been far more confident with his shot, which makes me think the coaches have really been encouraging him to shoot when open. His handles have looked much better also.

I remember last year his defense completed a huge comeback win against the Spurs, and I thought he was gonna be a super solid contributor on a really good team.

We’ve seen every version of Royce at some point since then. So I need a bit more consistency before I buy it completely. But he’s looked great lately, and seems committed to improving which is great. He didn’t even step out of bounds when he went baseline yesterday.

Needs to get those minutes above 18, and 3pt shots over 1.8 per game. I hope we see him more in different lineups and at different positions. He intrigues me more than Dante at this point. (Though hopefully both become awesome, because then we could defend any team in the league.)

Mike smith said something during the broadcast last night about gettting reps.
Maybe having burks gone plus thabo and exum being hurt have allowed Royce to get more reps in practice and more minutes in game. Sometimes having too many guys deserving a small amount of minutes can be a bad thing for some players and tightening up the rotation can help some players. Maybe Royce is one of those players that it helped.

unrelated related note. did you know that tom brady didn't start until his junior year of college, and was taken in the sixth round of the draft which is basically about the same thing as late second round in the nba. late bloomers happen. here's hoping.
