    Can anyonve verify if this is Royce Vs. Gottlieb (Twitter)

    I saw this conversationg. I don't do twitter and wonder if this is a real conversation. I guess Highway_30 is Royce?


    "@GottliebShow: not likely RT @evanmulville: @GottliebShow how do you feel about a NBA career for Royce White?"

    "@GottliebShow: @evanmulville undersized for 4--also, to be honest--the anxiety disorder scares some NBA guys in addition to other issues"

    "@Highway_30: @evanmulville @GottliebShow, Mental illness doesn't stop success,people stigmitizing it does, criticizing my game is fine...."

    "@Highway_30: 2evanmulville @GottliebShow...Leave the millions of anxiety sufferers out of it. You're just perpetuating the stigma"

    "@GottliebShow: @Highway_30 never said mental illness stops success, but NBA peeps are afraid of what they do not understand--these are just facts"

    "@Highway_30: ...Gottlieb, out of line"

    "@Highway_30: @GottliebShow never said mental illness stops success, but NBA peeps are afraid of what they do not understand--these are just facts...okay, sounds better."

    "@Highway_30: @GottliebShow Being afraid of what we don't understand is actually quote natural, not informing ourselves is neglectful..."

    "@Highway_30: @GottliebShow Your words carry weight, that initial tweet was like, NBA guys have a legitimate reason to be afraid..."

    "@GottliebShow: @Highway_30 doesnt change the fact that when a borderline guy is being discussed, teams pass"

    "@GottliebShow: @Highway_30 my initial tweet was my informed analysis, based on my evaluation and people I have spoken w/-u dont like it, that is fine"

    "@Highway_30: @GottliebShow No hard feelings, we just have to clean up the talk about an already stigmatized. Not for people trying to get to the NBA"

    "@Highway_30: @GottliebShow But for people who still need diagnosis and treatment ... They're more important"

    Holy crap. Gottlieb is treading on water. You don't want THE Royce White punching you in the face.

    Great. Now the players hate this clown as much as the fans do.

    Its very real. Royce is a big proponent of supporting and diagnosing mental illnesses.

    I dont care a ton that Doug is critical of us. However I think he probably should keep his mouth shut about scouts taking issue with a disability. That could really get pushed out of proportion.

    i recognize there is freedom of speech etc, but i'm not sure media directly calling out players via a public forum like twitter is a good thing. i can't imagine ESPN thinks there's a positive here.

    that said, royce was rather articulate and measured in his responses, which is commendable.

    Very interesting to see. It would be nice to get an actual interview on the issue, instead of a tweet war.

    If some ******** scout passes on him because of his illness, some other scout will thank his lucky stars for getting him.

    also, royce doesn't need to worry about what doug's nba contacts are telling him. fred will get a much better read on that stuff, and is there anyone in the nba who doesn't like/trust fred? i doubt it.

    I don't think Gottlieb said anything wrong, and I also don't blame White for sticking up for his disorder. Never the less, the conversation ended very civil.

    I take more of an issue with Gottlieb saying our D sucks and completely being ignorant to ISU's improvement.

    agree - he handled it well. probably not a good idea for a player to engage in a social media debate/discussion (twitter, fb, etc) with the media. especially without the sports information folks in the athletic dept in the loop.

    i'm sure coaches will talk with the team about this. its a new age...social media is blurring or erasing the boundaries between media and athletes.

    The funny thing about the NBA, NFL and the rest is how much we always hear about them doing their homework and all that noise when it comes to the draft. Yet the same NBA league who is worried about Royce's issues signed Chris Jackson, Later known as Machmoud abdul Rauf (SP?) to a contract. The guy had torrets syndrome, OCD, and was known as a guy who hated America. Hated everything we stood for. Yet he had a sweet jump shot, and made most of his free throws.
