Personally I would like to know the specific matters Royce is talking about when he says that the Rockets have not been proactive enough.

He may be expecting too much of the Rockets organization or maybe he is right to complain. Hard to say without knowing more.

Out of curiosity, if his contract is ever voided, can he be simply picked up by another team? That's a loophole, if ever.

If you are a player, and we run into each other in midtown, you instantly become cursed and doomed as an NBA player.

many years ago, I ran into Joey Dorsey. In fact, I did it twice. I ran into him at Randalls in midtown, and I ran into him again at the Houston Center, over by Toyota Center.

And then last thursday, I ran into him at the Walgreens in midtown over by the car wash, and specs and all those places. He was there buying cookies or something. Those small grandmas cookies or whatever. He was wearing NBA socks with those hood type of loafers. Don't know what they are called, but they're a hood necessity i think.

So that is what happened to Royce White. i gave him the ol Kam midtown curse.

Sorry. Terrence Jones, Scotty Machado, and Donuts, please stay far away from me in midtown.
The ****? lol

As much as I want to support Royce and am sympathetic to his mental illness..


Starting to think this is situation is more a Royce White issues than a mental health issue...

McHale is screaming at Hoidberg right now.

Hope he realizes that just because he can weasel his way out of the Rockets doesn't mean someone else will snatch him up.

Rockets had the MOST invested in him. No other team will give in to his demands.

So now he's back to saying the anxiety isn't the problem.

Then WTF is the problem??

Royce paid for the bus himself, afaik. I wouldn't feel the Rox would be too harsh at all. Royce's shortcomings have been grave.
Rockets are paying for all his transport expenses, including bus

End of story, I am afraid. He will be cut soon. We won't be able to get even a low second rounder for him. I never felt he was good enough for the 16th pick. I felt he was good enough as a 20th pick, and would fit in eventually.

Royce may be the last thing on McHale's mind given his daughter's illness. In Royce's mind Royce seems to come first for better or worse.
