Hopefully he doesn't have to fly there, or I don't think the meetings going to happen...

What a waste of a draft pick :mad:

I defended this guy right up until the drama began, but it's becoming more and more apparent that he's an astute student of the Dwight Howard school of drama.

Obviously we can't ask for a refund on the pick, but surely Houston will be allowed to call up a player to take up the opening now.

So he's going to leave the NBA because he can't travel in planes? Man, I'd kill (not really) to get to the NBA, yet a guy with that Golden Opportunity walks away.

As much of a disappointment as he has become for my Rockets, if this is going to happen, I want it to happen sooner rather than Later. I'd rather them just cut ties with him than for him to be a distraction the rest of the season and constantly bring negative publicity to the franchise. And having watched him in the Summer League and the preseason, I was beginning to have my serious doubts about him at the NBA level anyway. The Rockets still have a slew of other young players and other talented rookies like Donatas Motiejunas, Terrence Jones and Scott Machado.

You never want a first round pick to bust (and certainly not this soon), but if it had to happen, this is the season for it to happen.

No it's not, the red flags were there and there were a bunch of productive players after the 16 pick that could have helped the Rockets or been a trade chip. Right when they drafted this kid, it hurt, because no team would trade for him and now he isn't even playing. No production, no trade value at all, bad move by the GM.

Who do you think they should have gotten? I really dont want him to quit, Power-Point Forwards are intriguing prospects. He had high risk but decent reward value, I cant blame Morey for taking the gamble, especially considering he had 3 picks to play with anyways.

dont feel bad for the guy at all... In my opinion... He shoulda handled this whole situation like Metta World Peace (make sure everyone knows you're crazy on the court... See your shrink off the court... Thank him/her on national tv after winning a title). Dude shouldve and couldve found a way to manage his emotions but just went to twitter instead. You cant bash your employer especially when they were open and more than willing to help. I feel bad for Rockets fans. Classy fan base for sure... Doesnt deserve this kind of drama

Handle this like Ron Artest?

Ron(or Metta) is crazy, Royce just has a mental illness that millions of Americans deal with on a daily basis.

Big difference.

I really think he'd be a great fit on the Knicks actually.

If Houston waives him, it wouldn't surprise me if they cleared a roster spot of Chris Copeland to bring Royce in. The Knicks have a bunch of veterans there who can take him under their wing on the floor and off the floor. But because they have a team of veterans they don't have to worry about guys thinking Royce is getting preferential treatment and their egos getting hurt.

Stand up guys well respected across the league like Marcus Camby, Rasheed Wallace, & Kurt Thomas might even get on one of those bus trips with Royce just to show their support lol I remember when Camby would arrange team dinners in Portland and even invite Greg Oden despite him being injured and spending all his time in the training room. Real team leader.

Ron Artest is crazy to the point he doesn't understand his actions which makes him funny but a very scary individual. He is one of the few successful crazy people in society and thats should be applauded.

Royce on the other hand has a severe anxiety disorder that manifests itself in different parts of his life and people have to be aware of it to collectively help him strive through it. He already takes medication to manage it.

For those of you old enough to remember Mr. T on the A-Team show it's the same illness. They use to drug Mr. T without him knowing and then drag his azz on the plane. Mr. T would wake up and start freakin out.

Royce is balanced mentally, he just needs a range of support to help him stay balanced for fear of becoming unbalanced.

On the other hand, Ron is unbalanced. His therapist is only there for anger management but there isn't much else to help him. He probably wakes up each day and attempts to smell his ceiling fan without being hit :laugh2:

Well either way, we know Ron Artest isn't exactly normal and has something wrong with him mentally. That's why I consider him to have some form of mental illness.

Any team that wouldn't mind just having Royce on the Roster for 41 games strictly at home will pick him up if Houston waives his contract.

But I don't see that happening.

Royce already got over the fear of flying and been on a plane.

He's just mad the Rockets dont want to have anything considered special to help him so he stays on the right track during the season while on the road for 6-7 months.

Some NBA teams have given players far more special treatment than what Royce is seeking. Just look at LeBron in Cleveland.

I view it like this.

If they were your roommates:

Ron is the kind of guy who is probably funny to hang around, brings girls back to the apartment for you, and is like an awesome bro. But then randomly one night you may wake up to him with you in a headluck and then you don't wake up again.

Royce is the kind of guy who grabs some snacks, goes into his room to write music and doesn't really bother you 95% of the time except when he decides to play his guitar until 4:00 in the morning. But then randomly he has a panic attack and comes into your room, sits on your bed hoping you can give him some life advice/pseudo-therapy to calm him down.

Then that's 2 different types of sickness.

i should have put it in another way. i know no one compared there type of problems. I guess i mean to say ron artest is just a thug, and royce white is just a *****. there isn't anything more between the lines. you have anxiety okay, go treat it. But this is a whole other level. Its just plain sad. He's making it worse and worse by not conquering his fears.

I understand this is a medical syndrome but WOW. It is hard to believe a NBA team cant find a good Psychiatrist to take care of this guys syndrome. After all 40 million adults deal with it in the united states (I understand the cases may not be as severe).

I think more effort has to be taken by both sides to deal with this, and i also believe the Rockets should have put together a more hands on approach than they apparently did. There did not seem to be much communication between both sides.

Social anxiety is the feeling of discomfort or fear when in social interactions involving a concern about being judged or evaluated by others.

^ This is human nature, 100% of people have this no matter what. It just depends how insecure you are when it comes to the severity. Im sorry this is no mental illness to me.

If I were the Rockets I would suspend him for the season. I would also pay for him to take a year and get the damn help he needs. Have him see a shrink, find out what meds he needs to get on a plane and he could be fine. If they suspend him they won't have to pay his salary. He would probably agree to it if they got him help. That would also block another team from just picking him up and them wasting the 16th pick.
