    Yeah.... not really though because there is ZERO chance he works for minumum wage he'll be milking his "disability" for SSI.

    There are way more people deserving of people's sympathy than RW especially those with more serious disabilities who's cloak RW is desperately trying to hide under. This doctor is clearly a ploy to get his way (he wants the rockets to approve a doctor who is going to tell the team to give him more minutes) if he is suggesting he not go to the D league.

To me, that shows he is willing and able to work hard to overcome/adjust to the hand life has dealt him as responsibly as his health and support systems allow.

    I think Royce has shown BB is important to him and enough so that he would work hard to get additional mental health intervention and support so he could play and attend college without having a major and destructive life breakdown - for himself and others.

    So a "dream" paycheck is more important than a good life, family or health for the rest of you guys? How's that working out for you? A "dream" paycheck/job is not what those who haven't been there think it is, I assure you. It is easy to be harsh and judgmental about something you imagine is more wonderful that it is in reality.

    I wish Royce a better future than the NBA or CycloneFanatic fans are currently offering him.

    And it's not Royce White who is setting mental health causes back 50 years - it's the willing ignorance and apathy of those who say they "care" (or used to) for his well-being.
    The problem is I don't buy that that is actually the case. How come he wasn't in shape for camp? How come there wasn't a single issue here? How come none of this was a problem until he got sent down? Why can't he play in the D-league? Is it that much more stressful playing in the D-league?

    None of that adds up to basketball. That adds up to feeling like you're entitled because you have a disorder.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I think it's possible to be supportive of Royce's "cause" and wish him well while also being frustrated/disappointed/angry/etc. about the way he's handled the situation.

    By the way, is that your Flying V?

    I can't answer those questions. Neither can you. Playing jump to conclusions and pin the blame on the *** just might not be the best game to play under those circumstances.

    Pretty sure you could answer whether it's your flying V.

    Frustration I get. Blaming and shunning due to lack of understanding how someone can throw away what others see as a golden opportunity coming from a healthy perspective is another.

    I don't own a Michael Schenker of MSG and UFO flying V (My Avatar). It looks cool but short of the signature model made in USA at like $3-4K, it don't sound cool. But cool looks is fine when there's no sound to go with it.

    I do own a Gibson and Epi Flying V.

    Milking SSD is like milking a male cat. It's not very satisfying for the milker, it's way more work than a real job and there's no milk to be had. But the milkee seems to like it just fine.

    Step one: play in the league
    Step two: spread positive awareness

    Re: Royce refuses to play in D League

    So White tells the NBA his condition wont be an issue and then he makes it an issue. The guy is so messed up in the head he cannot grow up, make a few mill, and be set for the rest of his life.

    Hey Royce, life is tough. In the working world not many people will go out of their way to deal with your situation. Suck it up and do the NBA thing. You will make more money there than anywhere else in life.

    I worked two different jobs this semester where people did go out of their way to deal with my situation, but I was also showing up to work and getting done what I could get done.

    Royce should try that.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    This, this is how he could spread awareness of anxiety. Just suck it up and play, and then you can do all your work with anxiety after the success comes.

    Actually, yeah, I didn't think of it until you just said that. I have an employee who has an anxiety disorder. He came to me...6 months ago and said he has it, his doctor is switching meds, and it takes time to adjust. He's missed prolly a day every 2-3 weeks since then, but he's a good kid. I'd rather work with him on that than the ones who bail with no notice on a Friday in order to go to the bar.

    But you do show up for work and are not using your situation as an excuse.
