Time For Royce White To Make Decision On Life And Career

Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier this season in the National Basketball Association, we heard about the situation of Royce White from the Houston Rockets and the issues he faces with anxiety and a fear of flying. White has now rejected an assignment to the D-League because he feels it is an unsafe situation for him. It has to be said now that White should probably find himself a new profession.

I had sympathy for White to start this because I know what he is going through with anxiety but it is getting ridiculous now. We all know White has the problems and it appears that the Rockets are helping him out with it but White doesn’t seem to want to accept what is going on. He wants it his way or the highway and if White continues doing what he is doing right now, it is going to be the highway for him. White has become a major troublemaker for the Rockets and hasn’t even played a single game for them.

Houston should seriously consider the idea of cutting White loose as soon as possible or finding a taker for him in a trade. This can’t continue going on the way it is presently because it helps no one at all. White should just go down to the D-League and play there or take his ball and go home. Those are the only two options right now. I wish no one any harm in dealing with anxiety issues because it is a cruel mental problem that a lot of people ignore and laugh off at times. I just wish White would make up his mind already.

Harden, Wade Ice Game For Their Team in Final Min

Two of the best shooting (if not the two best) guards in the game both put their clutch gene on display last night. Within a few minutes of each other, Dwyane Wade and then James Harden both hit step-back jumpers in the final minute of the 4th quarter that iced the game for their team.

Josh Smith Fakes Dirk Nowitzki Out of His Shoes

Josh Smith has returned to the Houston Rockets via trade, and he made the most of his first game back. He scored 16 points off the bench, including this drive on Dirk Nowitzki that made Smith look like Hakeem Olajuwon. Could Ty Lawson and Josh Smith be the spark duo off the bench that rejuvenates this Rockets team?

James Harden Filthy Crossover, No-Look Assist

With the Houston Rockets down by two and needing a bucket to tie the game in overtime, James Harden went to work. Step 1: dirty crossover and blow by your opponent; Step 2: No-look, behind-the-back pass to setup the easy lay-in from Dwight Howard. Magical.
