    No. While I agree it is not helping his image, it is his right to say what he feels.

    I have the right to tweet negative things about my boss or even CEO. I have common sense, so I don't. Royce should do the same.

    Royce might still have an NBA career if this was 2-3 years ago (pre-twitter). He is just burying himself.

    Looking through his Tweets it appears this is about not being treated like a person. It sounds like he feels like he is just being controlled and the Rockets look as just a player and not a person. Unfortunately that is the difference between pros and amateurs.

    I bet you guys didn't know this fact:

    Royce White leads the NBA in tweets per day.

    I honestly thought someone would have gotten to him by this morning. I expected(or hoped) to wake up and see nothing from him from here on out..but he just keeps going and going..

    If he's going to Tweet, at least try tweeting something that isn't cryptic nonsense.

    Somehow this is starting to remind me of the tweet that eventually took down the Lincoln football coach. Guess the Rockets aren't going to punish Royce with running though.

    He only has himself to blame. I think that his idea to bring light to mental illnesses is great but there is a time and place. Stop trying to create publicity, let your game speak for itself and the publicity will follow.

    Exactly, he's being paid big $ now. I really hope someone talks some sense into him and tells him to put down the phone, PC, whatever he's currently doing besides being with the team and face this thing head on instead of running from it. It would be 1 thing if he was with the team at the airport and freaked out while boarding the plane instead of sitting at home ranting over Twitter. Hard to help someone who wants to run away at first sign of adversity.

    If Royce White played mafia, Cybyassociation would scold him for posting too much.

    I dont think anyone is questioning that. The problem is, there are better ways to handle this. Spouting off on Twitter is a horrible way to handle this situation, especially at the rate that Royce is Tweeting.

    Never realized that he has over 100,000 followers. That's a lot of people seeing this meltdown occur.

    Prolly saw he was trending then hopped on the trashcan fire to see some drama. Be interesting to see how many of those are new followers.
