    I feel for the guy, and I know anxiety can be crippling. But he shouldnt publicly whine about it, he's an NBA player, with NBA responsiblities. If he can't perform what the team needs, maybe he should consider a career change.

    How many players do the Raps have that don't play every game? If this guy as any good, why not trade for him and then he is a DNP for any game he has to fly to. He would be available for every home game, every game against NY, Brooklyn, Detroit, etc. He could hire his own driver, his own bus and sleep while being driven to games. You give him a salary commensurate with the expectation that he will miss games. If he improves your chances of winning 50 games out of 82, just do it. I don't see what the big deal is. Better get driven to a place like Brooklyn and sleep then go through the BS at the airport, leaving and arriving and get to a hotel at 1:30 am.

    Its a gamble, but if he's as good as everyone says, it may be worth it. I'd imagine the rockets are looking for a trading partner for him, they already screwed up his situation (Maybe through some fault of his own.) Its hard to say. Yes, he has anxiety, but he sounds like a bit of a whiner too.

    Anxiety disorder or not, White has made some questionable decisions in the past that led to two theft and one assault charges plus his disciplinary issues necessitated transfers in both high school and college. Since 2009 Royce has only played the one season at Iowa State. The Rockets are culpable because all this was disclosed pre-draft and I believe they are carefully trying to avoid a law suit, hence no suspension and no public admonishment, though the owner has describe the case as a wasted draft pick.

    No employee with a grandiose sense of entitlement is worth it, imo, especially one who has yet to establish himself in his professional career. The "show must go on" with or without White and it's looking more like without at this point.
