    Rockets GM"s letter to Royce from HBO Show

    Apparently, a couple of pages of a 5 page letter between the GM of the Rockets and Royce is shown on the HBO feature that is coming up on Royce.

    Here is a blog where they show the pages that were shown on the show. This is incomplete obviously, but still interesting.

    The link:

    Ultimate Rockets Daryl Morey’s letter to Royce White

    Credit goes to a couple of tweets from Travis Hines:

    Travis Hines@TravisHines21 Houston Chronicle has published correspondence btwen Rockets GM Daryl Morey and Royce White, and White's "protocol" http://*******/UYLcNl

    Travis Hines@TravisHines21
    According to the Chronicle's post, the documents were shown during HBO's 'Real Sports' segment with White, which airs Tuesday.


    -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".

    Re: Rockets GM"s letter to Royce from HBO Show

    It's pathetic that so many are propping this guy up on his twitter. Certain things like truth and integrity are exclusive of illness, and the evidence keeps mounting that Royce is not doing what he said he would do, and is witholding #TRUTH from his twitter followers.

    Re: Rockets GM"s letter to Royce from HBO Show

    I'm curious if this is true and why Royce didn't go.
    We gave you Dr. Fink’s contact information and several available times for an interview. You and your representatives responded that you viewed this as a very helpful step and confirmed that you would meet with Dr. Fink. You did not do so.

    That's true. I followed him on twitter at that time and he said he'd rather meet with his own doctor who he felt more comfortable with. Said that the Rockets should know that if they had done their #HOMEWORK.

    Just seems weird that he couldn't meet with what appears to be a different highly qualified doctor, or have both of them coordinate his care, or something.

    Somehow Royce keeps reminding me of Walter Sobchak. "I don't see any connection to Vietnam, Walter. What the **** are you talking about?"

    Royce White ‏@Highway_30
    So "Bashing" my employer over twitter is wrong, but an extremely inaccurate letter being released on twitter , by the TEAM writer isn't.

    Re: Rockets GM"s letter to Royce from HBO Show

    The bottom line is that we remain willing to work with you on issues that arise from legitimate medical need, but you have to come to games, practice and everything else that you are able to do, just like any other player.
    Hammer/nail. Show up to team functions, Royce....meet them in the middle, but at least show that you're willing to do the work it takes to be successful in the NBA.

    To revisit from the beginning, before we drafted you, you told us that your fear of flying was not an issue and that you were ready to be an NBA player. Shortly after we drafted you, you apologized for having to mislead us.
    Mislead. A softer word for "lie."

    Royce will never step on the floor of an NBA game. Just my opinion.

    Royce makes me appreciate all of those physically handicapped people who just ask for a access ramp under the ADA rather than a hovercraft.
