Royce White: "Im Willing To Quit"
 

 

" Houston Rockets rookie Royce White says he is prepared to walk away from the NBA.

Speaking in an interview with ESPN's Colleen Dominguez, White said he was going to meet with general manager Daryl Morey on Monday to discuss his situation with the team.

The Rockets have said they intend to fine White for every day he remains away from the team or does not attend sessions with a therapist arranged by the team. The Houston Chronicle has reported the Rockets have no plans to trade or release White.

On the situation with White, a Rockets spokesperson said the team stands by its previous statement, "We are committed to his long term success and we will continue to support him now and going forward."

White, the 16th pick in June's draft, has remained absent from the team in a dispute over how the Rockets are helping him confront his anxiety disorder.

White, who has yet to play in a game, did not attend Monday's game against Miami, Tuesday's practice or Wednesday's game against New Orleans. He said on his Twitter account that the Rockets have been "inconsistent" in helping him.

The Rockets (4-4) visit the Portland Trail Blazers (3-5) on Friday night."

nah i'm pretty sure he just generally has anxiety and it probably got a lot worse with the pressure raising as he transitioned to such a high level of play

Big mistake... He's going to regret it in the future... You don't work that hard to get drafted into the NBA, only to quit in your rookie season... I know generalized anxiety disorder is a serious thing, but come on man... Think with your brain...

Honestly I could see things like this becoming a bigger problem in the future. I'm sure players in the past had all sorts of mental illness or some form of G.A.D. I mean didn't Bill Russell throw up before every game because of nerves?

Now there is just names for these types of things and it's becoming more acceptable to talk about it. It wouldn't hurt teams to put more emphasis on mental health of their players as well as their physical health. I hope he can work through it though, many people would k!ll to be in the position he's in right now.

He has a serious disorder and for him the question is does he risk his health to get millions and make fans/family/n*ggas that hang on happy or does he say the best thing for me is to walk away and preserve my life and health while I do something else.

If it's as serious as they say then he doesn't have a tough choice to make.

Hell he already got anxiety, that weed paranoia gonna k!ll him. naturally chill people don't get paranoid, but as bad as his anxiety is, it might be a good idea for him to stay away from trees.

that can make it even worse.

this can't possibly be easy for him just think about it. he was scared to be in a room full of family, friends, and people that support him. now he has to deal with moving to a new city, being around a bunch of people he doesn't know, no comfort zone basically.

i'd expect the majority of people on this site to be insensitive about something like this but personally i can understand it and hope he overcomes it.

The trees is what got him through in Ames. OAN: I still dont get where everybody gets the whole paranoia with weed from. In all of my years of marijuana I haven't experienced that once and I've been through many transitions and phases of the potency of it.

If it does that to you then you shouldn't be smoking it. Or at the very least you should only be smoking a certain kind.

so you a.ssume the effects you feel are the same for everyone? paranoia/anxiety is a very common effect from smoking herb.

agree i suffer from some minor anxiety but not like what he has, so i can't even imagine what it must be like. and yes smoking makes it worse.
