    Anybody who would be unstable enough to try to use use a recent massacre of children as leverage to whine about his situation (which involves a 7-figure salary), should be in a room with padded walls. If I'm Houston I'd be less concerned about getting a return on a high pick, and more concerned about this guy harming himself and more importantly, others in the organization. It may be a sick thought but that rant by white could be interpreted as "play me before I do something batshit crazy like shoot up your building. I am mentally ill after all."

    From what I was reading I guess McHale really tried to sell Morey on selecting him based on him being previously familiar with him while with Minnesota. Not sure if he's the guy for personnel decisions...

    Remember when some people wanted the Cavaliers to draft him?

    "However, it saddens and frightens me to know that in this situation all the decision makers involved have been informed of all the medical dynamics, and yet still refuse to adhere to medical sensibility. In hindsight of the recent tragedies in this country, that had mental illness variables, you would think it would encourage people to act more proactively in that arena. You would think that decision makers who are not well informed about mental health, would take the consultation and recommendation of those who are. You would think we would start to do everything possible to not let the tragic consequences befall us first, before we ask the logical question, “why?”, “who knew?” “how could we have helped?. Why not take a proactive approach of “who knows?” “how can we listen?”, “how can we support now?”
    If this isn't a veiled threat, I don't know what is...

    in the 5 years following Ron Artest's Malice at the Palace, no team would've put up with this bullshit. Piss or get off the pot, man.

    I doubt Royce meant his comments as any sort of a threat, and I looked and couldn't find any link between people with anxiety disorder and violent behavior (unless they have other disorders as well). Some thought the take away from Sandy Hook would be that mental illness would be taken more seriously, and not ignored, and not brushed under the rug. Obviously not the case ... just from the comments in this thread.

    The problem is that the Rockets have apparently offered him help, and even made concessions to accommodate his condition. The reason no one is buying the shit this kid is selling is because it's incredibly clear that he just doesn't want to play in the D-League. He's using his illness as an excuse, and that's why people are fed up with the kid.

    What pisses me off the most is how he is always talking about other people. Always wanting everyone else, specifically the Rockets, to know they should do more to help him. No mention of things he should be doing to help himself. It's apparently everyone elses duty to make sure he's feeling ok, but not his own.

    Turns out being an egomaniac diva is a much worse condition than anxiety disorder.

    Dunno, I don't like to pick sides in a finger pointing contest when neither side is presenting the details.

    Yes, on the surface it looks bad that he's refused the assignment to the NBADL ... but that's just the surface.

    What I want to hear from this kid is how all he wants to do is play ball.
    Have not heard anything like that yet, its always I want to play but....

    People would kill to be in his position, I'm not walking in his shoes but if he wanted to work on his game and his disorder than the D-League seems like the perfect place to do it.

    The thing is though, Royce using his mental condition to get playing time just doesn't line up with who he is and what people have said about him.
