Solid article from Woj here. Mostly things we've heard but some new interesting bits of information.

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--ro...-16011709.html

It seems as if he knows Royce will be reading the piece and is begging for him to tone it down to save his career... Thoughts?

Cut him

He has taught me alot of moves, but to me, they seemed just like eye-openers that broaden my horizon." - Yao Ming On Dream

Wow did he really use his anxiety order to force the rockets to give him more playing time? It is one thing to have this mental disease but to use it as a crutch to improve your place over people who are actually paying their dues? Get this loser outta here!

I think it's also an unpleasant fact: Without playing time, he may really feel more pressure to cause anxiety. Morris is mentally healthy, and we all know how he feels about dleague last season. I don't blame him if he said so, but that's different from 'threatening'. This is complicated.

It doesn't really matter how much pressure he feels. If he can't handle that, for medical reason or whatever reason, he shouldn't be in NBA. He can try a different career. Rockets is a business, not his parent.

Well, Morey wouldn't give up on him. In yesterday's interview Morey said team want him to succeed maybe more than Royce himself does.

Not a fact. He is using his disorder as a short cut to get ahead. We all feel pressure to do well in our jobs. It's part of living. You don't get a free pass. Lazy piece of ****.

"want him to succeed" still means White need to be able to handle the situation first, right? Nothing will be handed to him unless he earns it.

Plus, Morey won't get the organization into legal trouble by saying otherwise.

Seems to me twitter might be the biggest problem. If this stuff were just handled behind closed doors... But it's incredibly unprofessional to take this to twitter, especially when the Rockets are respectfully quiet. Really everything else in the situation I can write off as health management. White compared his requests with a player coming back from a knee injury, so fine, sometimes rehab you do well, and sometimes you have setbacks. He has a behavioral disorder and the setbacks are manifest in his behavior. It's something you work through. If only he'd just be quiet in public.
