It seems like they are taking on the responsibility and he's not living up to his end of the bargain. His Twitter rants make him seem like an immature ingrate. They can't hold his hand every step of the way. I don't get it, players are always screaming about being "grown men" but often times act like petulant children. You can lead a horse to water but it doesn't seem like this horse is drinking.

According to rotoworld:

Quote:
The Rockets are reportedly fining Royce White every day he misses practice or therapy sessions with a person chosen by the team.This situation has turned ugly fast. According to the report, White grew upset with a lack of playing time last week and met extensively with GM Daryl Morey and two assistant coaches. Morey reportedly told White other players had earned the time, while White reportedly believes the Rockets are holding his anxiety order against him. With both sides so at odds, it doesn't appear this will end quickly or well. Nov 14 - 11:18 AM


You have to be kidding me right? Lack of playing time, he's a frickin rookie, I don't think any of the rookies have played at all. No wonder they are sending him down to teh D-league.

Having to deal with Royce White, Daryl Morey has now developed an anxiety disorder.

Wow. That's silly. The rookies have hardly got playing time in the first place, that's what it's like as a rookie, his expectations are ridiculous. Play time will come but in the meantime he's getting paid for sitting on a bench and watching games, he's being very unreasonable.

Sounds like he's pissed he's not playing and is using his Anxiety Disorder as a way to turn this against the Rockets.

Pretty sad stuff.

I think you're overreacting to the info that was out there pre-draft. Many people have mental or anxiety issues and are still able to function in their chosen careers. Just knowing that a person has a mental issue should not disqualify them from a job.

To me the biggest issue is that Royce is missing time at work without any valid excuse and throwing temper tantrums when he does not get his way.

Terrence Jones and Motiejunas has played in 1 game each. Limited minutes. The rookies just aren't getting playing time.

Look how dominating the West is... they travel way more and bitch way less than the East, yet, they have been the best conference since Jordan left.

Why can't they just drug him?

I'm being serious.

People get knocked out to get teeth pulled these days... which isn't even close to necessary. Having teeth pulled with novacaine <<<<<< having an anxiety disorder triggered, from what I have heard. Hell, having teeth pulled without novacaine < that.

I guess it would affect his performance. You don't just snap awake. Just a thought.

I think it messes up the body's biological clock, not sure about the details, but yeah he would wake up drowsy.

Being in an eastern conference team wouldn't help. He's using his disability as leverage for more playing time, and in doing so is indirectly throwing teammates under the bus. If they give him unearned playtime, that playtime is taken from that of fellow teammates', and also only playing home games would be a privilege- playing half the # of games but getting as much money? Real lockerroom problems unfortunately.

Here goes the latest news on the Royce White situation >>>> http://www.startribune.com/sports/wolves/179307131.html

Quote:
Rockets TV analyst Matt Bullard said Tuesday night that Royce White's comments about his decision to leave the team for now "shows that he does have, you know, a mental illness, because a lot of the things he's saying don't really match up with the reality as I see it as I'm around the Rockets every day."

White, the former Hopkins High star, whose Twitter handle is @Highway_30, responded to Bullard's video:

I wonder if Royce is on drugs...he's awfully paranoid...like over the top, and I doubt he has Schizophrenia . Possible addict IMO.
