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..

HurricaneKid said:

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.

I wouldn't dismiss Royce White's documented mental problems completely out of hand, but when I read that he'd refused his assignment to the D-League, I did start to wonder what kind of issues he had beyond a fear of flying and OCD. Maybe he is a sociopath, maybe he's just getting some really bad advice on how to carry himself in these dealings, but mental problems or not the situation is being handled poorly at his end.

The Rockets did admittedly get themselves into the situation, seeing as how they drafted him with the knowledge he had these issues. However, they seem to have gone above and beyond in trying to accommodate him while he refuses to meet them halfway. Even if he's to be given a pass because of his mental problems, the people looking out for him should be doing a much better job of mediating and handling the situation.

It's long been known he has an anxiety disorder. Those are just symptoms of it.

Same with this whole disagreement on whether the Rockets are following whatever thing the doctors have suggested. The team probably is doing the right thing by trying to get him to head down to Rio Grande and play for them.

White says he's fine with being sent down but neither he nor the Rockets will say whatever this condition they aren't meeting is. It's probably minor but White is using it as a way to avoid something else. Or, perhaps more likely, someone in his camp is using it and taking advantage of White.

The fact that the Rockets aren't having leaks badmouthing him and saying he's faking means the medical diagnosis is probably pretty sound from what they can tell. (Plus they aren't even considering trading or waiving him.) And it's all consistent with an anxiety disorder. He's missing large components of a sociopath diagnosis no matter how much someone reading fourth hand stories might despise him.

The Nuggets continue to be unpredictable by beating the hottest team in the league. We also saw this from JaVale McGee

Well, I certainly dont believe I cant be wrong, but given what I have seen from him so far, I would take precaution if I had to deal with him in real life.

Kind of a shame the Clippers didn't at least get to 20 straight wins, which would've equaled their all-time worst losing streak and placed them in the top ten for both winning and losing streaks in league history.

I'm also nervous about the Clippers tying the Rockets (or surpass them). But Yao proved me wrong. :lol:

Mavs finally win via a Vince Carter vintage performance and will probably lose against the Heat the next night.

Most lovable person on the Pistons? Trainer Mike Abdenour. Helps the referee in last night's game vs the Kings, then gets a technical called on him for helping Brandon Knight while a play was still going.

No good deed goes unpunished, just like the Recap commentator noted.

I doubt that Vucevic was coming off a knee surgery in that game. Oh, and did Vucevic tie the game with three seconds left?

Oh and why capslock Vucevic? He's one of the most talented european big men right now. I'd take Vucevic over a lot of scrub big men in this league. (at least three of them playing for the Heat)

I don't think it was a flop, his arm was caught and he ended up taking a hard fall, but I wouldn't call it a flagrant either. Looks worse than it is as far as what Ezeli did.

Not a flop. He may have even got a slight concussion from hitting his head on the floor, or just a painful bump.

Looks like Steve Francis to me. But from the one's on the Warriors homepage its most likely Kent Bazemore.

So from that point the biggest problem for Blake will be that Bazemore is never on the court. Would be awesome if he dunked on him (don't get me wrong, I dont like Blake very much, but revenge is always a great theme)

phpBB assumes we're everyone's enemies by default, what with us being power hungry bastards and all, thus we're not allowed to use it.

So Rudy Gay might be on the block. Pretty surprising seeing ass how well the Grizz are doing.

Not that surprising considering they're paying him the max to be a slightly above average small forward.

Im wondering if Rudy Gay for Batum swap could work for both teams? Portland desperately needs a secondary ball handler who can create offense for himself while Memphis probably needs better outside shooting and Batum has a more all-round game. I like Batum but just wonder.

Batum can't be traded until the summer because the Blazers matched an offer sheet he signed.

One of the marquee match ups of the year, Clippers vs Lakers seems like it was nothing short of spectacular.

Definitely a fun one to watch. As usual, Griffin was doing his best to pull down the rim.

Right now the Clips are smashing Golden State early on, 30-12. I don't like these fast starts, though. They get complacent.

That seemed to be the case against the Lakers yesterday, though they ended up winning comfortably this time around.
