    Re: Globetrotters interested in Royce??

    I'm thinking the Globetrotters might just be the best fit for RW. He would be their best player, and could have a long career, and a lot of fun. He's great with people, and would be away from the premadonnas in the NBA.

    Re: Globetrotters interested in Royce??

    Royce needs to find a good psychiatrist and take some medications before his flights that knock him out. This is getting ridiculous. The Rockets went out of their way making Royce a high draft choice and a very rich man. They didn't sugar coat anything for him. I don't think he should be bad mouthing the Rockets. The expectations wouldn't have been any different for any other NBA franchise. The NBA travel is a grind and your expected to play at the highest level every night on the court. You could travel by private RV if you were in the NFL and had one game a week but not close to being do-able in the NBA where you often have two or three road games a week, stretching from Portland to New Jersey. I'm a big Royce White fan and I'd love to see him get it together and be successful in the NBA but he's in a difficult place right now and if he doesn't get his anxiety issues worked on soon his NBA career will be a bust and he might have to go play for the Globetrotters which would be really Sad to see. We need to send him a card with all our support. How do we do that.

    Re: Globetrotters interested in Royce??

    The problem with the Globetrotters is that they travel about 10 times more than the NBA. They play several games per week, all year long, all over the world. Just looked up their European tour from March-April. They are playing 24 games in a month, in 24 different cities in 5 different countries. Doesn't sound like a good fit for somebody with travel anxiety.

    They already said he would be excused from international tours and all US tours are traveled by luxury buses. (Not saying this will happen but the travel won't be a problem.)

    Ending up on the Globetrotters would be a fitting end to this whole saga.

    How many times has Royce said its not about traveling, he can deal with that. Its the fact that Houston wants him to use their doctor and Royce wants his own and the fact Houston ins't too concerned about his health. He's addressed this numerous times.

    I seriously doubt that the Rockets are not concerned about his health. That may be Royce's perception....does not make it a fact. The fact is, by contract, the team has the right to select and approve the doctor, in particular when the athelte has missed practices or games due to a medical condition. Royce knew that going in when he signed the contract. To ***** about it now, and try to make it something it isn't is unprofesional, and extremely immature.

    The Rockets took a chance on Royce by making him their 2nd draft pick and paying him well. To come out and bad-mouth them now for something he knew going in is just ridiculous. Sorry, but the Rockets are not in the wrong here. They no doubt have their reasons why they do not want to use Royce's choice of doctors. It's not like they are doing it just to be mean to him or something.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".
