They do use busses in the D-League. He should fit right in.

So this is what Jason Richardson is like when he's not on the Magic and/or coached by SVG...

Dwight looks absolutely dumb wearing that yellow headband.

Looks like Royce White is speaking out...

"In hindsight, perhaps it was not a good idea to be open and honest about my anxiety disorder, due to the current situations at hand that involve the nature of actions from the Houston Rockets. As a rookie, I want to settle into a team and make progress; but since preseason the Rockets have been inconsistent with their agreement to proactively create a healthy and successful relationship. At this point the Rockets are aware of my position and the reason for my absence. Any other response is inaccurate. This is important to me. It is a health issue. I must advocate for my rights. It is a player-commodity league. The failure to meet my requests for support will end with me being unhealthy and that is not a consequence that I am willing to accept to play any sport."

Royce White ‏@Highway_30
I informed the #Rockets of every practice I was going to miss. There were no unexplained misses.

Royce White ‏@Highway_30
To be clear!, my only reason for publicly speaking is b/c YOU were lead to think I was AWOL, False. The communication has been loud n clear.

Royce White ‏@Highway_30
Its important to tweet to lend #Transparency and RT to reveal ignorance. I do understand being scared of being vocal tho, just not who I am.

Royce White ‏@Highway_30
Again My "Anxiety" is not well but not BAD, my main WORRY is being treated as a digit instead of a HUMAN, in the case of my health.

2h Royce White ‏@Highway_30
While #anxiety is the issue, the main piece of that isn't AIRPLANES, it's asking for support 4 my disorder thats consistent and fair.

2h Royce White ‏@Highway_30
"your a COMMODITY" and "we'll support your health needs even if its inconvenient..." just don't go. My health can't afford such an ideal.

2h Royce White ‏@Highway_30
I'd waste my "Talent", to stand up for myself and what's right, regarding my health 10x's out 10. #Logical Player "Commodity" league.

2h Royce White ‏@Highway_30
It's sad to think ppl ACTUALLY think should be higher on my priority list then health..you can't enjoy success OR money without health.

3h Royce White ‏@Highway_30
My "anxiety" hasn't caused inconsistency in my participation with the team from training camp until 72hrs ago, ✈ to DET, ✈s Isn't the issue.

3h Royce White ‏@Highway_30
Problem goes back WAY before D-League assignment. This about #Consideration and #Health it isn't about Rebounds & Money.

3h Royce White ‏@Highway_30
I'm most defiantly not AWOL... There are many things here ppl don't know, #Honesty is what I'm sticking with. @HoustonRockets "Luke 12:3"

Royce White ‏@Highway_30
Everybody wants to be on the "We support" "We want to help" wagon, but when they realize its a TOUGH wagon to be on, they SLOWLY back away.

Come on, now we're blaming Stan for this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ddms-RLOjOg

Jason did come off screens for us a lot in the 2012 season.

My point is SVG would have screamed at him for even attempting a dunk like that... he probably would have laid it up and missed it instead. :lol:

And? He did a break away 360 dunk on the sixers. Again, my point is he would have been yelled at for even attempting a dunk like that under SVG... you know it's true. Freedom.

Royce White, what a shame, that kid is messing up his career. Agent needs to get him off twitter and into the d-league, fast.

TWitter is the bane of all athletes ( especially dumb ones or even Pierce who "claims" it was hacked. LOL)

OH yeah, so magic fans, are we breathing a sigh of relief that the trade with HOU did not go down? Otherwise we would have Royce as our headache

He wouldn't be the first college can't miss player that missed, if he crumbles and fails.

For his sake I hope that's not what happens, but he's not helping himself right now. Sounds like he needs help, or more help, than he's getting at the moment to try and overcome this mess.

We are talking about a million dollar job. He is being an idiot. You have to cowboy up and fight your fears. I used to be severely terrified of heights even ten feet off the ground. I went out west and started rock climbing. At first, I couldn't look down or stand up at the top of a mountain, but the more often you do it, eventually you can stand near the edge and look down. We are all kings of our own minds.

I won't go as far as to say he just needs to man up and play. But, in my mind, I definitely think he needs to either find a way around his anxiety or void his contract. Teams should not have to pay a player not to play or even show up at practice. If he's that sick, just take a leave of absence without pay and rejoin the team when you're ready. Don't go around tweeting how unhappy you are.
