    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.

    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

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

    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.

    I'm curious if this is true and why Royce didn't go.

    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?"

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

    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.

    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.

    Found this excerpt from the interview

    BERNARD GOLDBERG: Can I show you something from March Madness?
    ROYCE WHITE: For sure.
    BERNARD GOLDBERG: You know how to hit play? Hit play.

    SOT ANNC: He steals the ball. And here he comes again.

    BERNARD GOLDBERG : What did you say there? (White shouting at Kentucky)
    ROYCE WHITE: I’m the best player in the country.
    BERNARD GOLDBERG: Did you think that at the time?
    ROYCE WHITE: I knew that at the time.
    BERNARD GOLDBERG: You dunked over Anthony Davis who was the number one pick.
    ROYCE WHITE: I abused him all game. I didn’t just dunk over him. I just abused their whole team all game.

    Personally what I think is Royce feels like he is a know it all when it comes to anxiety. He came to Iowa State and the community didn't know much about anxiety so people took his word for what he said about it. Royce has to feel like he is in control of things and that is not going to be possible in the NBA because the help he gets there is coming from some of the worlds best doctors.
