Well im really not disputing the mental health claims and whether its fair or whatever.
Im simply stating that if everyone was aware as you say, including the Rockets.. and if White knew that he would need to make these adjustments.. Why hasnt it all been taken care of already? Why wait until training camp to seek these personal adjustments? Seems a bit suspect or maybe its just irresponsible behavior that is typical of people with mental issues. Either way its not good to have someone unstable being impulsive with their demands.
He knows he has these issues so its his responsibility to seek treatment and try to learn which adjustment methods need to be implemented. There are various ways to help curve his issues, he just has to put the effort and desire to actually make it happen. If he doesnt get motivated and try to progressively change.. he will either be riding buses his whole career while making less money than his potential or the teams that will be willing to deal with him, will start diminishing.
There is therapy for what he has.. but it takes a lot of hard work and a willing spirit. He has to suffer before he succeeds. Which is why hes making all these adjustments... hes not ready to face the facts yet.
