Royce O’Neale 17 Points Full Highlights (5/8/2018)

It’s cool when teams just pick rando dudes off the top of the scrap heap of undrafted/Europe-bound players and they turn out to be valuable role-players right out of the gate. In case you missed it, Royce “John Salmons 2.0 with defense” O’Neale is one of those guys, and he just led the Jazz in…

Royce O’Neale 17 Points Full Highlights (5/4/2018)

Royce O’Neale was the high-scorer for the Jazz in game 3, which is pretty nuts for an undrafted rookie who only started four games in the regular season. How did the rest of the Jazz starting lineup fare? Poopy Gobitch: 6-of-8, 12 points (that’s not so bad actually) DoNotROTY Bitchell: 4-of-16, 10 points Woe Dingleberries:…

Royce O’Neale 19 Points Full Highlights (2/14/2018)

Royce “Shaquilee” O’Neale competently manned the starting shooting guard spot last night as Donovan Mitchell got moved fully to the point guard role. That’s great. I love it when rookies play unexpectedly large roles for their team, especially when the rookie is undrafted. The only problem is, Alec Burks is getting completely marginalized. Burks played…

Royce O’Neale 13 Points Full Highlights (2/5/2018)

If there’s one lesson that I’ve recently learned, it’s that I shouldn’t avoid making a highlight video for a player just because they had a significantly better performance the game before. In this case, Royce O’Neale scored eighteen points a game ago, by far his best game as a pro, and those eighteen points make…

Royce O’Neale 18 Points Full Highlights (2/3/2018)

Royce “Shaquillee” O’Neale is already 24? So what was he doing between not getting drafted and randomly appearing on the Jazz opening night roster? Sitting around on a couch in his mom’s basement and jacking it to Japanese cartoons? Because that’s what I was doing between the ages of 21 and 24. I looked it…

Royce O’Neale 11 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (12/4/2017)

I am officially retracting an earlier statement I made which compared Royce O’Neale to John Salmons. That was a dumb comparison. Obviously Salmons would never record six assists in a single game. In making that comparison I was preoccupied with the fact that Salmons and O’Neale have similar looking faces and facial hair. I apologize…

Royce O’Neale 11 Points Full Highlights (11/28/2017)

A few disorganized thoughts on Royce O’Neale because I don’t have enough material on O’Neale to compose several paragraphs of organized narrative about him: -I thought his last name was pronounced “Oh-Neely” but both commentators here steadfastly called him “Oh-neel” like he’s Shaq’s son or something. So I went and found an interview where O’Neale…
