With the Philadelphia 76ers taking on the Boston Celtics at the Bob Carpenter Center tonight, all eyes will be on one player in particular — Royce White. Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times tweeted earlier on Thursday, that head coach Brett Brown said, “I’m looking forward to Royce playing Friday versus the Celtics.”
For Sixers fans, this is good news to hear but the bad news is tonight’s game will not be televised. Except for a few attending the game, the best most will be able to go off is how his stats look at the end of the night.
This is going to be a first time in a while that Royce White has played in an NBA game. Last season, White was in the NBA D-League for the most part, while dealing with anxiety attacks. White hasn’t tapped into his NBA potential that I believe coach Brown will be able to bring out of him.
