From what I have observed from Royce White so far, he seems to be a sociopath. I posted this on RealGM and going to share it here as well
Here is my reasoning...I saw this post by HurricaneKid in the Royce White thread and damn Royce is fitting the characteristics too damn well..
Does anyone know his history? He was suspended from the HS team, then later expelled from HS. But he continued enormous basketball success and got a full ride to Minnesota. When at Minnesota he was suspended for a year when he stole a bunch of clothes from the Mall of America. When he was caught he pushed the security guard to the ground twice, pleading down to theft and disorderly conduct rather than face assault charges. The next year he was caught stealing a laptop from a student and charged with theft and trespassing. When he was charged he dropped out of school.
Thats how he ended up at Iowa St.
I know he has some serious issues but he has not exactly earned the benefit of the doubt here.
Have you seen his documentary on Youtube where he tries to look like such an innocent young man crying over his "anxiety" problem? I saw the Blazers-Houston summer league game and this guy came off as the biggest douche/jerk/inconsiderate piece of **** Ive seen in a while.
Sociopaths love to make a big deal of any discomfort going on in their lives because they only care about themselves. They dont give two **** about their obligation towards other people or how their constant bitching and moaning is causing discomfort to others. White is fitting the characteristics perfectly.
He first tries to gain peoples' pity by looking like someone in serious distress?---Check.
Treating the Rockets like they owe him for problems caused by and related to only him?-------Check
History of being in trouble with the law, and even after being caught he refuses to admit or feel guilt (pushing the security guard down twice)----------Check.
This guy is a sociopath. Dont be fooled by his "serious anxiety problem". Sociopaths love to make people feel sorry for them because it makes it easier for them to manipulate and take advantage of people. This guy has enjoyed a nice paycheck, good medical attention, and still refuses to see how he is at fault for taking all the Rockets money and not playing basketball.....
Nothing in his life history gives us any reason to sympathize with him. Dont give him the benefit of the doubt, he doesnt deserve it. He is using other people to enjoy a good life. This is how sociopaths thrive.
