Default Re: F Royce White, Rockets at odds with agreement to help with anxiety over flying

Cant help but to feel sorry for the guy but at the same time idk y this guy was drafted so high.cmon

Think about it for a min

A guy with mental health issues in front of all the world to see?lol

Media,endorsements,fans,groupies,etc that he got to deal with on a daily basis and you waste a solid pick on him?

Look the guy can ball but wats the point if he cant get to the game?

Idk if this is legal or bad but here is my idea of wat royce can do to overcome his fear of flying.

Take some sleeping pills right before you board your flight.boom u good to go.i wish i could talk to royce id tell him look man u know its more likely for u to die in a car crash than in a plane crash? And its true.

This guy has to get on the court he can make the rockets so much better.gives their bench more depth and size.their frontcourt would br summin like utah jazz frountcourt with millsap,jefferson,kanter and favors.

Oh well hope the rockets know they gone eventually have to part ways with either lin,harden or asik down the road.if i was them id be looking for a lin replacement in the next couple drafts cuz the boy is absurdly overpaid.

I feel sorry for the player, and the team. But, when everything is said and done, this looks like a wasted pick.

I think the onus to make this right is on the Rockets. He's been public about his anxiety from day 1, he hasn't been hiding or misrepresenting to them. By selecting him I would assume they made preparations and were confident they could make him NBA ready? Royce has to make an effort as well, but it's the Rockets who have to try their best to help him. I mean, they basically took on the responsibility.

I said this in one of the other dozen Royce White threads, but he shouldn't have been picked by the Rockets. He should have requested an Atlantic Division team.

Less long distance plane rides. Only one West Coast trip a season. More opponents you can drive to. If he's on the Nets, he can drive to Knicks, 76ers, Wizards, and Celtics games easily. Plus short flights to Midwest.

You reaslitically can't drive anywhere from Houston...only SA and Dallas....still far.


Perfect trade. Royce White for James White......see? A White for a White? Done....and done.

I have no idea what's going on between them. If he's refusing to cooperate, could be on him.

says the club has been “inconsistent” in its agreement to help him cope with his anxiety disorder.
This is what he's saying though.

and I think this line in the article sums it up pretty well

White’s off-the-court issues were never a secret, but the Rockets felt as though he was worth the risks.
Maybe it just happened to be a bad risk afterall?

It's reported they are fining him for missing sessions. He's not going to the sessions.

Kid sounds terribly immature. Having emotional issues is not a get out of jail free card. It doesn't mean you get to do whatever you want.

White for Amare...


Seriously, I imagine his issues with spark up playing in NY. So I'd say it's the same as him playing in Brooklyn.


Houston was interested in signing Nene before, right? Would they do a White for Nene deal? Wouldn't Washington?



The Bobcats? That could be the steal of a lifetime. This guy has legit star ability. Charlotte is ass. The anxiety that comes from losing so much would force to go go into beast mode lol.



Lastly, who is James White?

Anywho, this is what I'm talking about. Being in the East would help him.

Back on Royce...either way, there is some highly effective therapy for all types of anxiety disorders as well as some mood stabilizers he could take. This is an instance of him either not trusting therapy, or simply not caring enough to try.

Ray Allen has OCD. Seriously.

If he's someone who can help teams win, he can just sign up on terms that he will only play home games and receive lower salary. It's unorthodox but would be a win-win solution.
