In response to DaCeltics' comment:
DON'T PUT ME ON NO PLAAAAANE, HANNIBAL!!!!
I completely agree with ACIEMVP , Anxiety Disorder has become a catch-all label and I believe Mr White's real problem is his malignant narcissism......
Rickey Williams of the NFL had real anxiety disorder and it almost ended his career prematurely.....he stepped away from the game, got himself together and came back to have a nice productive career with the Miami Dolphins. I believe Rickey Williams marijuana use was the result of his anxiety disorder, but when he discovered yoga and had the discipline to stick with it, it gave him enough relief from his anxiety that he was able to come back to the NFL , perform on the field and be a good teammate in the locker room.
Anyone with 4 out of wedlock kids by the age of 22, completely covered with tattoos, sorry folks, that guy is someone I wouldn't hire to shine my shoes.....(wouldn't trust him to do it right)
THANK GOD Royce White was not on the board when the Celtics pick came up......
Now can someone tell me when MOE HARKLESS WAS DRAFTED ? WOW ! THAT GUY IS GOING TO BE A SUPERSTAR AND HE's ONLY 19 YEARS OLD ? ORLANDO STRUCK GOLD ! NOTICE THERE"S NO TALK OF GIVING HARKLESS A YEAR TO PLAY IN THE D LEAGUE ?
19 AND HE'S ALREADY A MONSTER, I SAY HE PLAYS IN AT LEAST 10 ALL STAR GAMES BEFORE HE IS DONE.....
PS: FAB MELO WAS PICKED #22 IN THE FIRST ROUND....
but royce white GOT ON A PLANE to go cut a whine for CNN!!
this guy does not have anxiety disorder, he has narcissistic personality disorder.
anyone watch his "interview" with donny lemontaster on CNN the other day? white was UNABLE to answer the simple question of WHAT DID THE HOUSTON ROCKETS NOT PROVIDE YOU WITH THAT YOU NEEDED?
white looked like a lyin fool in his empty framed glasses with his no answers- kept mumbling about how "mental illness is a dynamic human resources issue" and "well, recognition and respect are very important"
this bozo has been given TOO MUCH recognition and respect. he's now fat, slow, no hops (if you ever think glen davis could not get "up", watch white get stuffed in the lane habitually in his 2 1/2 week D League cameo), no quickness, goes limp and stops playing when he does not get a foul call to his liking. he's just a complete fraud.
the kid has changed from the summer league to someone who was able to practice and travel into a blithering narcissist- ALL he can talk about is himself. he doesn't even talk about being passionate about the game, because he isn't. his BIGGEST COMPLAINT i could glean from the preposterous CNN interview that you know he did behind the Rockets' back was that he did not like "staying in hotels" and that's why he left the Red River Rapscallions or whatever they are called. REALLY? i mean when does someone in this kid's inner circle advise him to SHUT UP, you look FOOLISH- if you can't eat and sleep in a hotel then this is NOT THE BUSINESS FOR YOU- they are not going to rent luxury houses for you for one night in each city- that would technically be more chaotic than a series of milk-toast to very nice hotel rooms.
soon he won't have to worry about it- he's done enough to have his contract voided already, meanwhile he is EMBLAZONED with tattoos- anxiety disorder but doesn't mind buzzing needles coming at you? m'k. needles galore but hotel rooms bad. right. soon he'll be staying in homelesss shelters or JAIL. the idiot has FOUR KIDS already- apparently can't put a piece of gum on it or do anything to keep from spreading his baby mamma empire. four kids, four different tramps.
He's GOOD at racking up the babies- that takes some intense interpersonal contact. but he can't stay in a hotel? can't practice and stay in shape? the guy is a complete flake. too many people have over-catered to him in his life. he also LEAKED a letter that daryl morey, houston GM sent to him regarding not going to any of the psychiatrist appointments that the rockets made for him and to please define what it is he needs- which he constantly changes his song over. the leaked letter made white look like a MORON. so why did he leak it? he thought that there was something juicy in it to enhance his victimhood. only narcissists think like this.
and narcissism is a son of a B, but it's only a "disability" when others enable it.
