Naw I was on his side but it went too far. There's a line and he's crossed it imo.

And good lord Royce is a certified self absorbed douche. He deserves every bit of hate, trolling, and more. Shit, at this point he loves the attention. Hes a conceited asshole and you guys are falling for his bullshit thinking he needs any of your or anyones sympathy. Ive been following him for a while, dude gets anxiety from flying thats about it.

Spokesperson for people with mental disorders? The only reason he has any leverage or any chance of succeeding is because of his undeniable basketball talent, any other situation and this dude would be a lifelong burger flipper with that attitude.

He was open about his psych issues once it benefitted him to be. He was mum enough about them to get drafted, and once he was drafted, all of a sudden he was "open" enough to say, whoops, can't play. Sorry. Now pity me.

This blows my mind. How can people actually think he hustled an NBA franchise? It's hard to pull one over on regular employers these days, let alone one's with as many resources as the Houston Rockets. They may have believed it wouldn't be this bad, they took a risk tho and I'd have to assume that they knew that going in.

If they didn't it's their own fault, nobody to blame but themselves. Royce's struggles were well known. When you're dealing with that much money you better be sure just how serious his issues are before drafting him.

That's not to downplay what Royce is doing but Rockets didn't have to draft him. Coulda let him continue to slide.

Right now about the only thing he can be a role model for is if someone wants to be a little bitch. He's blazed the trail for that. I'll give him credit if he shapes up and gets his shit together. So far he's done nothing to show that he's willing to make an effort on his own part to deal with his shit.

I agree, he's been extremely self absorbed, and his constant tweeting and occasional moment of throwing the Rockets completely under the bus (no pun intend) really got under my skin at some point.

But lets face it, he's read every single possible reply under the sun since this whole thing started. All he's gonna do is retweet one of you and say #BeWell friend.... or whatever it is he says.

Sticks and stones, be the better man. Mental health really is no joke.

Is Insidehoops really condoning this potential act of bullying?

This thread should have been deleted instantly.

Grow up, you sad losers. I dare you to pick on Royce White face-to-face. Let's see how tough you are then.

Pathetic.

I guess the goal here is to make Royce feel even worst, because people don't agree with his decisions, but in reality you're just making yourself angry while he probably doesn't give a **** about what you guys think. You have no way to prove it otherwise, unless you know the guy personally.

This thread is pretty sad, and shows that maybe he's not the only one with a mental disorder.

Great point.

It's depressing that members of our society would go out of their way to pick on someone, on the internet or elsewhere.

I guess it's their way of making themselves feel big and clever, i.e. to make up for their failings and inadequacies in the real world.

this is sheer ignorance. There were scads of media reports on him prior to thr draft, going back years. Every team knew the risk. The rockets chose to take that risk. Besides, its between them and him, not a bunch of keyboard warriors on ISH

We all know what a white lie is. May I introduce something I like to call a black truth?

"I have mental anxiety and I may not be able to handle the travel required of an NBA player" is a black truth. It's true; but it's self-serving bullshit. It makes the odds he'll be any good to you seem greater than 0, which is totally dishonest. "I have mental anxiety and I will absolutely not be able to handle being on an NBA team next season, and I know this damn well, so I'll be classy and not enter the draft until and unless I can be an asset to a team" would have been the honest truth. When you have anxiety issues, you know what you can handle and what you can't with precision.

I understand his situations as when i first moved to college i had a couple bouts of anxiety not at an extreme level. But if his is this severe he is no role model for the team or any other experiencing this dissorder. Hes make zero strides to help or assimilate into the team. He wouldnt play for the D league when its only a drive away. Hes going to be a waste of a pick or miraculously become healthy when the checks stop coming.

Sorry to say but his condition is just way too much to deal with.

So long Royce and say good bye to your career.
