Houston Rockets Breaking News: Royce White Is Prepared To Quit

It has been reported that Royce White has told ESPN he is going to meet with General Manager of the Houston Rockets Daryl Morey and is prepared to walk away from the NBA.

Royce White continues to miss games and practices and there is no sign of him returning. NBA Columnist for Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier today that White has been fighting the Rockets since day one, refusing to get in a vehicle that would take him to training camp in Rio Grande Valley. White has stated his anxiety wouldn’t be as bad if he was given minutes in the NBA.

Royce seems to not understand nothing is easy in the NBA. You have to work for playing time and big contracts. The Rockets have treated this guy better than the Lakers treat Kobe. He is simply not worth all of the negativity it’s bringing to the Rockets organization.

This obviously has less to do with his disorder than he puts on. If he has anxiety why is he brining more attention to himself? He’s not fighting for people who suffer from the same disorder. He’s fighting to get what he wants, like a child does.

Royce has gotten a chance to live my dream of playing professional basketball. Millions of people have dreamed of this since they first picked up a ball. Now he’s throwing it all away. This shows how weak of a person he is. How cowardly he is. If this news is true he will never step foot on an NBA court again.

    Your comments are ill informed. Frightening ignorance about anxiety disorders. Rockets can have a top shelf player if they figure out how to manage this talent. Royce can ball with the best in the NBA. Come on, Houston, wake up!

      It’s funny that you say i’m ignorant when it comes to anxiety with i’ve dealt with it myself. He’s being immature about everything so far and needs to ball up. If this guy had a normal American job he would have been fired months ago and that’s a fact.

    No, he is absolutely spot-on. I get anxious about getting on the Los Angeles freeways every day, but you know what? I do it anyway. I get anxious about performing in my acting class, but I do it anyway. I do it for a tiny fraction of his seven figure salary. I do it because I love what I do, expect the fear, but I do it anyway. Royce needs an intervention from someone he will listen to. Otherwise he will have much more to get ‘anxious ‘ about real soon.

    Got to agree with Guest, yes millions of people deal with it but how many of those people do it and by and large are depressed he living your dream so what he would rather be healthy and lets not forget Eddie Griffin who had a disorder that destroyed him one that if he was being helped wouldn’t have. You write for a website and I don’t know you but guess what you didn’t work hard enough if the NBA was your dream, you didn’t try other sports basically all you did was do what millions of other kids did, practice but no sacrifice. Here the thing about any million dollar industry either your born into it or you work hard and sacrifice doing what everyone else is doing to get in. As Jayson Williams of the New Jersey Nets said many people are happy just to be playing in the NBA. The reason those men sacrificed their lives to be better than a billion other kids who didn’t know what sacrifice meant. Those same men are not just content they were treated like rock stars.
