This is going to be more of a rant than your usual basic post, but I feel like I should speak out for the people who are sick and tired of Royce White.
If you have a twitter and you follow Royce you may or may not be annoyed by him. Half the people love him and stand by him, but the other half wish he would man up and ball up. I admit I am on the man up side of the embarrassing Royce White saga but I have reasons for this.
A day doesn’t go by that Royce doesn’t go on twitter and demand equal rights for people with his condition. It’s almost as if he forgot the Houston Rockets were the only team that we’re willing to take a risk on him. It’s easy to see that risk has backfired big time. Not only is he basically on strike against the Rockets, but Houston has no shot at trading him. What team would want him after what he’s doing to the Rockets? The only solution to this problem is cutting him
Many people, including myself, sympathize with the people who suffer from anxiety and panic disorders. I’ll be the first to admit I have even had problems with anxiety. But Royce is just taking it too far. He’s not being grateful for the opportunity he has been given. He has the chance to be a professional basketball player and he’s throwing it away for nothing.
Many people suffer with the same symptoms Royce suffers from. But guess what, Royce? They all still have to get up and go to work every day. Most of them probably can’t stand their job. You get to play a game for a living but you’re going to complain about it? Grow up.
The Rockets are already stacked at his position so it’s in no way a major loss. Royce was supposed to be the spokesperson for the Anxiety Troopers movement. Instead he’s embarrassing himself and his family by throwing the chance to do something most people would kill to be able to do. Stop crying over the internet about how the Rockets don’t want to help you. It’s obvious they have tried multiple times and have agreed to many things to help you out with that no other team would do.
I’m calling you out Royce. You seem to like to talk a lot over twitter. How about you do an interview with me? I want to know all the real reasons why you have been a no show. I want to hear your side of the story. I’m ready when you are, Mr. White.
For the fans who will go off on me for writing this post, I want to show and tell you something. When his teammates and coaches are battling every night in the NBA, Royce is not watching. He shows them no respect. He even tweets about meaningless crap as the Rockets are playing. Here’s proof.
