    Royce White featured on next week's HBO Real Sports

    Not sure if this has been posted or not. Should be interesting. Especially since my on line cable guide refers to him as "football player Royce White".

    Re: Royce White featured on next week's HBO Real Sports

    Thanks for the information. Looking forward to the interview.
    Here is some more specifics: Tuesday 10PM Eastern / 9PM Central HBO
    HBO Real Sports - Royce White
    Attachment 17693
    .."Royce White, the 16th overall pick in last summer's NBA draft, has yet to play for the Houston Rockets. The 6' 8" power forward's absence isn't due to lackluster performance or injury, but an anxiety disorder that, among other things, makes air travel extremely difficult for him, something no NBA franchise has had to face before with such a high-profile individual. Determined to ensure that the club, league and players association accommodate his needs, the Minnesota native refused to report to the team last fall until a “mental health protocol" was prepared and signed by all parties. The situation reached a tipping point Jan. 6 when White was suspended for failing to perform his contract. In this REAL SPORTS/Sports Illustrated collaboration, correspondent Bernard Goldberg travels to Houston to meet the engaging and thoughtful 21-year-old for his first TV interview since the controversy erupted. White details the depth of his anxiety disorder, how he copes with it and what he feels needs to be done to ensure he is provided a safe work environment. "..

    Re: Royce White featured on next week's HBO Real Sports

    Hopefully he goes into some detail as to what accommodations he expects the Rockets to provide. He has been very vague about what he expects outside of saying a "protocol", and I'm very curious what exactly these are these expectations.

    I don't think this will help his cause with the Rockets.


    -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".

    This is petty and not politically correct, but I do not want this program to make him seem sympathetic...

    I wouldn't even bother watching it if I were you. Obviously your mind is made up, and the only reason you would watch is to get ****** if it doesn't fit what you perceive to be the truth.

    Very true on this account. Sorta true in others areas as well but I've always been fairly honest with my shortcomings.

    What, don't dunk in my face......don't steal the ball......don't foul too hard......no harsh language......let me score......give me the ball.....don't make me sweat....what? Is the ball leaking toxic substances...are the uniforms made of toxic material....do the courts not meet OSHA regs.....what? Or is it:



    don't expect me to show up and give 100% because right now I don't feel like working and you better not be critical because of this disorder you have no clue what I go through even though I have no anxiety fighting with this multi million dollar business and tweet all sorts of BS about them because I am a victim because they want me to do it their way not mine...when I may not feel like it and I certainly am NOT going to play "D" league ball because the Rockets owe me the chance to do what I want..when I want..with who I want!

    Ultimate Rockets » Royce White suggests potential mental health solutions

    Suspended Rockets rookie forward Royce White has confirmed that he wants the team to hire a physician – a “medical point person,” in his words – with authority to determine whether White’s generalized anxiety disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder will allow him to practice or play each day.

    I don't really understand Royces logic (per usual). He says the Rockets don't want Harden to break his ankle and I'm sure they dont, no more than they want Royce to have mental health issues, but if Harden was injured they would expect him to be going to rehab and doing everything he could to recover. Royce isn't doing anything to get better, in basketball or w/ his disorder. He may have been very unclear in his twitter rants in weeks past but now that he's speaking w/ national media it's becoming clear he's just an entitled, selfish, child.
