    Royce White, Rockets at Odds

    https://sports.yahoo.com/news/white-...GlvbnM-;_ylv=3

    That's a long url. Anyway, given how well things have gone so far between White and the Rockets, I can' t imagine White playing out his entire rookie contract in Houston.

    Weird. If Im the rockets, I just say whatever dude., if you want to try and bus around the country and try to keep up with pace, then fine. Then just dont play him either. And when his contract is up, just let him go. I wouldnt cut him. Maybe somewhere along the line of him bussing it back and forth for no reason, he will realize how stupid it is.

    A couple of parts:

    NBA sources with knowledge of White's situation told FOX 26 Sports the Rockets have arranged for White to get medical help with his anxiety issues, but he has refused to participate.

    The Rockets would like for White to meet with Dr. Aaron Fink of Houston, but that has yet to happen.

    According to sources, White's most recent problems with the team began last week when he told the club he was upset that he was not playing, and he said if he is not playing he is going to have anxiety and he is not going to show up.
    White has stayed away from the team since Sunday, and when he is not with the club, he is required to see a team doctor, which he has refused to do, according to sources.

    For every day that White does not report to the team or does not seek medical help, he is being fined by the club.

    Ok, I get that anxiety is real and all that, but this is a new one. Demanding playing time due to medical reasons? I am sympathetic to Mr. White but it seems to me as if he wants to have his cake and eat it too.

    And now we discover that people with mental illnesses behave erratically. I'm sure we're all surprised.

    While it's prudent to assume someone has actual anxiety issues and be sincerely sympathetic to the fact, I find it interesting that it's off limits to suggest he may be exaggerating his symptoms.

    I'm not going to type it all again, but his anxiety disorders have a long history of flaring up when he pouts..

    - He developed anxiety about wind sprints
    - His first documented anxiety of flying was during a pout session
    - Now anxiety issues over playing time

    He has had this reputation for going on 10 years .. did it with homework as well.

    I am not suggesting he doesn't have an anxiety disorder, but not sure why it's so ridiculous to assert he could also have started making it up so many years ago during the wind sprint tantrum.
    Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.

    Ever known two people with the same ailment or illness or what have you, but end up leading vastly different lives and have totally different outcomes?

    One person, almost refuses to talk about it, or accept it as their "lot in life" and is determined to break through whatever it is that's holding them down.

    The other person takes absolute ownership of their ailment and it becomes a part of who they are. "Hi I'm Royce, and I have an anxiety disorder, nice to meet you." it's darn near impossible for you to overcome something you constantly tell yourself you have.

    A lot of people never overcome their issues because it would involve destroying their own identity. Where a person goes in life is usually not contradictory to what they believe about themselves inside.

    I know mental illnesses are real, but I've known plenty of people who's mental illness stopped controlling their life once they refused to accept it anymore.
