Royal Ivey. Not to be confused with the ivy that grows on royalty.
Thanks to the complete and total lack of NBA-related news, this is one of the few chances for a lacktion ledger regular like Royal Ivey to be interviewed by Jonathan Abrams for an article on Grantland
. He's going back to school like Rodney Dangerfield
! (Except he's, you know, still alive.)
“I actually just signed papers to become an undergraduate-student coach, so I’ll be helping out this year.”
Huzzah! He's teaching the next generation of players how to effectively fill out an NBA roster by having a career average of 3.5 points per game. That's important. Someone's gotta be that guy who plays for five teams in six years. (Well, assuming we ever see another NBA game played in our lifetimes.)

"Seriously? You think people recognize me? Even I
don't know what I look like! I always have to carry around this GQ article Profile in Obscurity
