Re: Royce White: Releases Statement - Wants Private Bus At Times
The one thing about it is, it's actually his illness speaking for him when he says that he needs the bus in order for him to be healthy. It couldn't be further from the truth, but it's our tendency. Fear never happens in the present. It only happens when either anticipating some future disaster, or when remembering something that has happened in the past. In his case, it was anticipation. He initially said, "ok this is gonna be tough, but I can handle it." And then as the schedule came out he said "oh no, I have to be on a plane X____ amount of times, what if I can't handle it? What if I freak out on the plane? What if the schedule is too demanding for me? What if I can't handle playing in the NBA?"
Now, i'm not saying all of that justifies being back and forth in regards to the business aspect of it which is the NBA, i'm rather just explaining to you the irrational thoughts that go through the mind of someone with this problem and how real those thoughts and worries feel.
