Re: Rockets Royce White skips game, practice, to be sent to D-League

I dunno, it seems like he's just stunned people aren't bending over backward because he says he has a mental illness. Even if you assume it's the flying(which it isn't), that's not stopping him from practicing, showing up to home games and road games reachable by car/bus/train, and working with the team-appointed officials. Sounds kind of like a hipster teenager, to be honest. "I have a mental illness so I get to write my own rules, or I just won't show up"

Yep. The only thing I hope for Royce is that he's out of the league and doesn't earn a penny from the NBA.


Enjoy pissing away someone most of the world only dreams of, you spoiled piece of shit.

He kept talking about wanting to limit the exacerbations of his mental issues and establishing a protocol. I'll see if they have a link to the interview on their site.

The Houston Rockets have reinstated suspended forward Royce White and he's due to report to the team's developmental league affiliate on Feb. 11.

The 6-foot-8 White, the 16th overall pick in the last draft, has been on the inactive list all season as he worked on an arrangement with the team to balance his acknowledged anxiety disorder with the demands of the NBA schedule.
The Rockets said Saturday they had reached an agreement that "addresses the major issues" for the two sides. The league and the players' union have both approved the settlement, the Rockets said.
