It gets pretty brutal..

In case you don't know Royce White, He is a first round pick drafted by the rockets last draft. Royce White refuses to play for the Rockets and keeps calling out the Rockets to the media because he feels they aren't doing enough to take care of his anxiety issues such as his fear of flying. Honestly Reading the tweets I felt bad for him, even if he is at fault.

I Wish That Dude @Highway_30 (Royce White) Would Stop *****IN' And Shut Up And Play. This Dude Need More "Accommodations" Than A Diva!!!

My #anxiety is fine, besides being disappointed in the communication, and worried about consistency and the effect that has on my health.

I have worked in the field of mental illness for years, and know fully well that anxiety is a very real condition...but Royce uses it as an excuse, and his act is getting old.

He used it as an excuse as a freshman at the University of Minnesota when he stole from the Mall of America, and he used it again after he stole lab tops from dorm rooms.

All the people I know with this type of illness would jump all over the chance of millions of dollars, and do whatever they could to get over their worries...instead, for Royce, he makes claims that his condition is under control, which it clearly isnt...again, for all the people I have worked with who have mental illness, if they were given the ultimatum of getting on a plane to make millions, they do it...they may not like getting on the plane, or whatever the issue is, but they would realize the importance of it.

Royce just loves to make excuses, and likely loves the check he is receiving while not doing anything...in a couple years when that check stops coming, I will not be surprised when he all of a sudden says he will be willing to fly to get a chance to play in the NBA again.

I disagree. White is different, because all he has to do is stop his *****ing and trying to get his way. Illness or no illness, there needs to be a compromise...Houston has been willing to compromise, White has not...again, I know full well that anxiety is a real issue, but White uses that as an excuse to get his way, and has for quite some time now.

I was initially sympathetic, but at this point I say he deserves the scrutiny. I'm tired of hearing him whine about everything the Rockets are not doing for him. Who is the employee in this situation? Are the Rockets organization working for him now? Are they the ones under contract? He is scamming an organization by using a real mental disorder and its going to end up desensitizing a lot of people to mental health awareness.


Not everyone with anxiety lives in a bubble and never makes something of themselves but that seems to be what Royce White is hell bent on doing.... so long as he is making his paycheck anyways.

They need to trade him. The situation there is too far in. At this point they should try and get something for him and cut their losses. I think his issues now are more about the Rockets than his anxiety issues.

Seriously when was the last time a rookie caused this much problem? Ricky Rubio when he did not wanna play for Minny? I cannot remember any rookie causing this much drama for his team before.

Totally agreed. You have to wonder how much of this is malingering. He was fine until he got demoted to the D-league and all of a sudden "oh no they're not accomodating me enough", when it is clear he was skipping therapy sessions and putting off any help the Rockets were giving him. He can't go to therapy, but he has the strength to do very articulate interviews with ESPN about the art of the business?? HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!!! HAHAHHAHAHAH!! HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! Just waive him, nobody gives a rat's ***.

He was ****ing way before they demoted him. Going on Twitter rants and criticizing the Rockets. He has been using this anxiety stuff as leverage for a while now.

I just wish he would come out and ask for what he wants and stop being so cryptic about it. He keeps saying it's not about planes anymore so damn kid what is the beef now?

I'm a Houstonian and Rocket fan since birth. Once he was drafted I immediately started following him on twitter and wanted to learn about his condition. I have a degree in Sports Medicine and I have always found it interesting when public figures or athletes have a disorder in which they have to work through and as the public we kind of get to see a small glimpse into their accomplishments, for instance Michael J Fox or Jim Eisenreich who has tourettes and played for the Phillies.

However in both cases of Michael and Jim neither one of them went through the media with a woe is me type of attitude. I understand the illness that plagues him, yet I don't understand why he would tweet all of this stuff as if the Rockets are throwing him under the huge bus they got for him.

White believes that his issues will lessen even more if he were to receive playing time with the team even though he isn't good enough to play and his conditioning is not up to par. The Houston Rockets have presented a great opportunity for him to succeed, but he doesn't want to be sent to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers DLeague affiliate of the Rockets. Rather White would prefer to ride in his bus away from the team, get paid, and take playing time away from those who have earned and deserved it.

At this point I just want him to stop tweeting, take however much time he needs to get his stuff together, and come back and ball.

Wish White attacked his flying issues with the same fight he attacks the Rockets on his twitter account. If your outlet is playing basketball to get your mind off things. Then get to the D-league and play. Many players there trying to make a name for themselves. Morris didn't like it last year; but took the challenge and averaged close to 30 pts and 10 rebounds. White needs to prove to everyone and himself that he is tough enough to stand up to the challenge. If he can't travel and play in that league, then he can't cut it in the NBA !! Doubt he will; but hope he proves me wrong....Morris proved me wrong and I'm proud to have him as a Rocket now.

Am I the only one who thinks he deserves the hate? The man has to accomidate ways to travel with his team, he can't possibly be acting like this just because of a mental illness. He is not a baby anymore and his team should'nt have to put up with this BS. Anyways the Rockets knew what they were getting into when they drafted him so they're equally wrong as White is.

Rubio never said he didn't want to play for the Wolves. It was all speculation. And Rubio addressed it to be untrue.

Royce White is a ******* idiot, but with that said, the Rockets hold some of the blame bc they knew he could be a trouble maker and drafted him anyway.

Munkeysuit

I don't want to sound insensitive or ignorant to those who suffer from mental illnesses, but this is basketball you guys, Royce White was given a chance by the same Rockets team he is demonizing, a chance! not many athletes who play college ball get chances like these and the Rockets organization took a chance drafting him knowing about his condition and yet still decided to take the chance.
This needs to stop being about his illness and start being about basketball, if his illness isn't allowing him to perform to the best of his capabilities? then he needs to put this career on hold and go straighten himself out, the Rockets are already paying him the money to help himself and then some. I understand he wants to set standards and blaze a trail for many athletes who come after him with similar illnesses, but this is quickly burning bridges and turning fans who supported him and the organization against him real quick! he thinks he is doing something positive, being an advocate for these types of illnesses can be done outside of the game too! many players have or are a part of organizations that help people in many different ways, Royce should think about that.
If I could tell him just one thing, it would be that the world does not revolve around him, his illness doesn't have to make him a martyr, he can be a hero by just being the same guy who got him this far, just play! everything should work out after that.

OMG please stop with Rubio butt-hurt fan stuff. Do i need to go back and edit that **** out? Jesus it was an example! A bad one as i can now see but an example nonetheless. Rubio still cause headaches for his team with all the buyout stuff and waiting for him (which was not his fault). I am just saying i cannot remember the last time a rookie gave a team so much headache.

Rockets took a chance on him and it backfired. The only teams that should have drafted him should have been teams from the East. It is easier to travel to games by bus when playing in the east. That said White said this is no longer about planes.

Apparently he feels offended that there are no protocols in place in NBA teams for people with mental illnesses and he views that as disacknowledgement by the NBA and it's teams who at the end of the day are in fact employers. He feels there should be guidelines put in place so that players with mental illnesses do not have to feel out of place and discouraged.

I cannot say i disagree with him. Truth be told he is right. Teams as employers SHOULD have guidelines in place for players with mental conditions. You have to understand that this is a mutual benefit partnership between players and teams. The team WANTS the players and the players WANT the money. So if an employer wants to hire an employee who has been diagnosed with a mental disorder then it is the responsibility of the team to have protocols in place for such situations so that the player does not feel ashamed and does not have to feel like an outsider to his teammates.

The thing that Royce messed up on is when he failed to see that in order to gain leverage he has to play ball figuratively and literally. He needs to gain value to his team because as of now he is becoming nothing more than a headache. He needs to see other players like Metta and Dolonte that dealt with mental issues and follow their example (although White's illness is a lot different).

Just play kid. Gain some leverage before you try to become some pioneer for the mentally ill. You think people would've gave a **** about Magic Johnson and his illness if he was not famous. You Royce are as of now still a nobody.

I'm sorry to hear about your dad and I have mad respect for the fact that he still works. I wish him the best. But I hope you do understand the fact that you're talking about entirely different circumstances. Your dad can decide in his mind that he won't let his PHYSICAL issues stop him from working. RW can't just block out his mental issues and play through them. If he could do that, he wouldn't have a mental issue in the first place.

The fact that he managed in college but is struggling now makes me think it's kind of a self-fullfilling prophecy of sorts. I'm sure he CAN play through this, but his diagnosis might have him thinking he can't. Then that lets it build up in his mind even more to the point he scares himself outof being able to do it.

I'm looking at his Twitter, and almost every Tweet is talking about his anxiety. He is bringing all the hate on himself by being an idiot on Twitter.

I've studied a bit about anxiety. No expert but I do know his twitter outburst are not characteristic of someone with the disorder. It seems like he's just trying to draw sympathy and place blame. Also Dr Drew was on nbaTV saying his disorder should absolutely not affect his play on the court in any way and he's pretty credible.

Im shocked nobody in his camp can get him to shut up though, after this whole debacle is over its a wrap for him no team will touch him with a 10 foot pole......


*edit*

Also the fact that he's bombarding everyone with these twitter rants and raves and has yet to include a tweet of sympathy for McHales loss doesn't help his case either.........

Yep. The guy obviously has mental issues (sounds like more than just anxiety).. I don't understand why people think it's cool to talk **** to others in such a mean spirited way.

:violin: get over it, you're a grown man that has an opportunity to make millions and help out your family but instead he *****es about anxiety. everyone has experienced anxiety at one point or another. he's not the only athlete who doesnt like flying, but they'r mature enough to realize there's a miniscule chance the plane will crash. when the **** is the last time an nba plane crashed? if ever.

Who cares what it's about? The Rockets are dealing with far bigger problems than his anxiety, but yet he continues to whine. Regardless of what his issues are with the franchise, if he were a man, he would step up and make amends with the front office right now. With all the pain McHale and his family are probably going through, the last thing this franchise needs is White whining about his anxiety on Twitter 24/7.

As a Rockets fan, White is an embarrassment to my favorite franchise, and he either needs to forgive and forget or get cut/traded as soon as possible.

I initially stood up for the guy because he obviously had to have *some* talent to get as far as he did (school, college, draft, etc), but honestly, this is getting really old.

Asking a team to make accomodations for you is one thing, but I lost all respect and he's lost ALL credibility to himself in the eyes of Rockets fans the instant he couldn't resolve his issues with the team "in-house" and had to make a stink publically on Twitter.

Royce, you're an adult now, and what you do is no different than someone working a 9 to 5 trying to pay the bills and still come out and support you with 200 dollar a seat tickets, 15 dollar parking, 10 dollar beers and 60 dollar jerseys. The only difference between you and the rest of us is, you get paid enough to not have to worry about damn near anything financially for decades while the rest of us have to budget our money to come support your whining ***. :mad:

I agree completely. Royce White has handled this all terribly.

However i am merely pointing out that his issues are no longer with the Rockets or about flying. He feels it is an injustice that the NBA does not have any protocols or regulations in place for players with mental conditions. he feels it is wrong that he and any other future player has to feel out of place for having an illness.

Fans ****ing about how many millions he earns to play basketball need to stop acting like this is only a player benefit type thing. Meaning fans act like the Rockets did him a favor by drafting him and he should feel privileged. In a way that is true but at the end of the day the league would be nowhere without it's players. He has immense basketball talent and so NBA teams want him. They are the employer and he is the employee.

Just like employers have maternity leave and such, so there should also be protocols in place for those diagnosed with a mental disorder. I see what Royce's beef is and where he is going with it.

All this being said he needed to wait. He needed to not make waves and just make a name for himself before going on this mission. Nobody can bring about change if nobody knows who you are. Royce needed to just literally and figuratively play ball.

Again i agree with this. He needed to be more mature about it. However let's not act like his name was not being dragged through the mud everywhere by people that did not know the full story. The guy began defending himself.

Also yes he gets paid a lot. That is life though; doctors get paid a lot to be doctors, singers get paid a lot to be singers, lawyers get paid a lot to be lawyers, athletes get paid a lot to be athletes. It's just how it works. Does not change the fact that he is an employee and as an employee he has rights and there should be protocols in place for people like him just like protocols are in place for people that are physically handicapped.

He has a right to fight for what he believes in. Royce stated that the team doctor the Rockets assigned him to even agrees with him. Why would he lie about that? Maybe it is the fan that do not know the full story and they are too busy lashing out at him on Twitter to notice what he is trying to convey his side of the story.

From what i can tell his beef is not with the Rockets but with the NBA in general for not having guidelines in place for players with mental illnesses. He is just taking a stand. I honestly do not disagree with him ir hate him for what he is trying to do. In fact i am glad he is doing it.

I hate the way he is going about it.

See, that's what I think he wants the fans to believe. But the Rockets have tried to work with him and even got him his own psychiatrist to work with. I think the REAL reason he's pissed was because he got demoted to the D-League (which Motiejunas and Machado were also demoted to, by the way, and are already back from). He keeps *****ing constantly, but he has yet to really say why. The reason is that I don't think he has much ground to walk on.

Just like employers have maternity leave and such, so there should also be protocols in place for those diagnosed with a mental disorder. I see what Royce's beef is and where he is going with it.
While I do think that an NBA team that drafts a player with this type of problem should try to accommodate him to the best of their ability, I also think the player has an obligation to work with the team and do his job do the best of his ability. The guy didn't show up for practice and did not contact his team to let them know why. If you do that at any other job, you're either getting fired or you're on thin ice. NOW, he's been talking crap about the franchise for the last week. If he worked in any other job, he would have been fired a long time ago.

But he's not fired. And he is getting a once in a lifetime type opportunity to play a sport and make millions of dollars. I don't care what his problems are. At some point, he either needs to **** or get off the pot.


All this being said he needed to wait. He needed to not make waves and just make a name for himself before going on this mission. Nobody can bring about change if nobody knows who you are. Royce needed to just literally and figuratively play ball.
Exactly. He has done nothing for the Rockets organization at this point, so why should the Rockets bend over backwards for him? If he was working hard, showing up at practice and meeting with the team's doctor, that would be one thing. But he's not. He's *****ing every hour of every day on Twitter and completely alienated himself from his teammates, the franchise and a fanbase that is usually very open minded.

You are missing the big picture. From what i gather he is no longer fighting for his own benefit i.e buses and such, but for the benefit of any athlete and future athlete with a mental illness. He is trying to become some sort of pioneer. Voice of the voiceless type thing i guess.

Maybe it started with himself and the buses and the fears but then it escalated in his mind to:

"wait why do i have to feel like i am an outcast?...

"Why should i feel ashamed that i am receiving special treatment?..."

"Why are there not protocols in place for players like me so that i do not have to feel like a burden on my team or have my teammates resent me because they feel i am receiving special treatment?..."

"Why does the NBA in general not have guidelines in place for players like me?..."

"Why has nobody taken a stand before?..."

Try to see it from his point of view. He has a lot of supporters, most of them people who also suffer from mental illness. Meanwhile most of his critics are people who do not have any sort of mental illness.

What does that tell you? Fans need to spend less time judging and more time trying to understand.

What you and i can both agree on is that Royce has handled this poorly. He wants to do it his way and only his way and is being stubborn. We can agree that he should have played ball for a while first before trying to make waves.
