He needs to wake up and man up.
you musn't know anyone who's had experience with anxiety or depression? it's the kind of illness and situation that is incredibly frustrating for all involved. you just want to slap them in the face and say "snap out of it", but it's really not that easy. people who suffer from anxiety and depression know it, too, and they feel the same, but it can be a very debilitating disease/disorder. medication can help to numb/dull the effects, but it takes a lot of hard work to reconstruct the mind and learn coping mechanisms to control something like that.
the biggest shame is that White is in a position to be able to afford some of the best help money can buy, and he doesn't seem to be making the most of that. if he walks away from his NBA deal, he walks away from the money and health care that can best help him. he must really be at the bottom of a bad spiral if he can't see that.
