Royce White could be one of the most talented basketball players on the planet. There is nothing on the court (outside of free throws) that the man can not do well. However, White is also battling with anxiety and he feels the Houston Rockets are not doing enough to help him. He is even prepared to walk away from basketball forever.
SC NBA - Rockets F Royce White told ESPN he will meet with GM Daryl Morey and is prepared to walk away from NBA

This is a very strange situation and it does not look good for anyone. There are definitely two sides to this story. The Rockets have said they are doing everything they can to help White, but he simply refuses to listen. White says the Rockets are putting his health in jeopardy and that they do not understand what is going on with him.
White’s health issues are a problem but he did lose a lot of support over the last few days. White has been Tweeting up a storm and it has looked quite bad for him. No one wants to see a player call out his team on Twitter but White has been doing that. He might have a point but he is doing it the complete wrong way.
We will see how this works out in the end. I have the feeling that White will not be on the court anytime soon. Either way, this situation does not look good for anyone.
