This keeps up he will be out of the league. Probably play for the local YMCA team that way he doesn't have to travel.

He didn't say he wouldn't play ever folks. I mean fu*k let's just say he's injured. He's working on a plan to get himself healthy. The Rockets knew he did not fly before they drafted him. Shit so he misses training camp. Hell let's say he misses all season. It's not the end of his career. If he gets it all together then the Rockets come away looking like crooks because they got so much talent that late in the draft.

lol @ these weed and liquor "solutions" being presented by ISH's mental health disorder experts. I'm sure weed and liquor would solve all of Royce's problems

Just tranq that guy and drag him on an empty plane. Fly the plane until he wakes up and let him go crazy until he can deal with his problem.

What is that called? Flooding or something. I didn't pay attention in my Psy class. Seems fair though.

For people suggesting tranq or weed or whatever, you do realise that coaches give out important infos and videos to watch while on flights? They don't waste all that time on an airplane watching The Avengers, you don't always get to sleep, you have to study up the next opponent when on the flight.

I used to work with a guy like that. We'd be in some pissant town with a 9am flight and we'd be searching high and low all morning for some place that'd sell us booze so he could get loaded up before the flight.

He is open about his problems, he knows what his needs are - as long as they are addressed he should be able to play.

Repped, couldn't agree more.

I find it bothering though that some fans are already giving him a hard time, saw some pretty disgusting comments on Twitter etc..

It's easy for us to judge the poor guy when we sit at home as fans..

He's only 21 years old and I can't imagine how much extreme pressure the guy has on his shoulders. I have never had any mental issues like that and I only played for the youth national team and in the swedish basketball league and I still remember how nervous I was before games and how some playoff games were messing me up completely even before the games started. And again, I have no mental issues and here we have this guy with a pretty severe anxiety disorder who plays in the NBA where his every move is going to be watched by million of fans..

I hope the Rockets try their best to help him out.

All kidding aside I give this kid mad props for giving the NBA a go. Hope he pulls it off. Rockets need some recognition too for taking this gamble
