    For White, it is a job. The Rockets appear to have made reasonable steps to help him. If he cannot do his job then he should be fired. End of story.

    All I know is dude should get off of twitter for the time being. He's getting serious **** and if he is really as screwed up in the head as he thinks, that can't be helping.

    I just went a read some of his tweets. The guy is pooring gasoline on his career right now. Someone in his inner circle needs to stop him.

    When I first heard his story I was a little more sympathetic. But not anymore. He has too much of a sense of entitlement, and he acts like a pre madonna. He has to realize he isnt going to be given a free pass to play in the NBA just because he thinks people should feel sorry for him and cater to his needs. The NBA is a tough business, the teams needs results and actual attendance to the games.

    If I am the Rockets I would just cut him. There isnt any point in dealing with that nonsense. His issues with flying arent the Rockets problem, and bussing it around the country just isnt feasible. Just ask him one more time, you want the job or not, it requires flying, yes or no?

    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.
    I could be wrong, but I thought I read that his issues with wind sprints stemmed from having a friend collapse while doing them when he was a child.

    Here's something on that:

    https://www.grantland.com/story/_/id...ct-royce-white

    White traces his first encounter with anxiety to long before his diagnosis. At the age of 10, his best friend, LaDream Yarbrough, collapsed after wind sprints during basketball practice. Drool trickled down his face as White looked on. Yarbrough, who was suffering from a previously undetected heart abnormality, was rushed to the hospital and survived. But White was never the same. After that moment, he lived in constant fear, a fear that he, too, would one day collapse on the court. His anxiety was constantly creeping.
    Now I certainly don't know enough about White's history to comment on the other things PKM mentioned.

    So what about his friend? It has nothing to do with him. Dude seems completely full of **** and needs to be traded pronto. He'd perfect for the Kings.

    What coaches know (or anyone who does digging) is that he was very hard (ultra hard) for coaches to motivate, always had massive whining sessions while his teammates were working hard. The wind sprints was the birth of a way to get out of hard work. That is my opinion and the opinion of most everyone that has looked into his history and interviewed past coaches, teachers, etc.

    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.
    This. No one I work with even knows I suffer from GAD. I had empathy for him at the start, but does appear he uses his disorder as a crutch to get a pass.
