Royce White says he's ready to play for NBA team. Anxiety was blown out of proportion.

    This. He seems to truly suffer from some mental health issues. But his biggest problem is his love of victimhood, with a complete lack of discipline to apply himself. Whether you believe he deserves sympathy or not, there is no way he deserves an NBA contract.

    You know, when I was in sales we had a 100 rule. 10 people will always say no to everything, 80 have varying degrees of response depending on what you are trying to sell them and 10 will always say yes to just about anything. Those were the 10 you always targeted and the ones that enabled sales... and the ones scammers target as well, including RW.

    People on this thread supporting RW are getting scammed by him. Researching him I see more narcissism than I see mental anxiety. Only that 10% would fall for letting him getting another chance.

    Lol Joyce. I hope he fails at whatever he attempts. That's what you get for scamming our Rockets and then talking **** about us.

    He is well versed in the culture of entitlement which can easily be learned as a collegiate athletic star. He feels entitled to a mental health policy, not victimized by mental health issues. He frames himself a crusader fighting the good fight, not a victim if unfair treatment. He was a dominant presence in college and is used to getting what he wants.

    He doesn't need a humanities professor (or even better an MBA program or echo chamber cable news) to program him with that overwhelming sense of entitlement. NCAA did that already. White is easy to understand. He thinks he is special and better than the average athlete. Far from a victim.

    DD put it best, though. Dude is a con man. He never expected to succeed in the NBA. He just did what he had to do to get that guaranteed contract.

    I would sympathize more if he came out and said "look, I was a jerk and wasn't ready to play before." But to lie and say we didn't set up the protocols he wanted??? We said he could bus wherever he wanted when reasonable. He's full of it and doing more to hurt his cause than to help it.

    Anxiety problems are overblown indeed. His other problems though are underblown. He's admitted repeatedly that he doesn't practice basketball on his own, despite a desperate need for a jumpshot. He also has looked fat every time he tried to step on the court.

    So yes, Royce. Even if teams can pretend you have no mental issues, they can't pretend that you're too out of shape to run or jump or hit a shot. You know, "basketball ball problems."

    ^Apparently he's claiming victory for securing a protocol that helped him impregnate women despite not taking any responsibility for them.

    That's the job this nutbag is claiming he did for the past few years, and he assumes that another team will willingly sign the dotted line for him to tweet again.

    Who wants to sign a publicity clown who will draw the ire of mental health sympathizers against his employer?

    It's not even 1.4 million, league min for the first hit.

    What a discount!

    If he's genuine (unlikely), he'd STFU, goto Europe, and assume they don't understand the garbage he's posting about them online.
