people do not understand that fear can be crippling.
it can turn you almost mental.
some think slap a few pills in the person and things will get better.
it isn’t that easy.
royce white from the houston rockets is willing to walk away from his nba dream.
all due to his condition.
he has an intense fear of flying.
everytime he misses a game,
the nba keeps fining him.
obviously he doesn’t give af anymore…
Speaking in an interview with ESPN’s Colleen Dominguez, White said he was going to meet with general manager Daryl Morey on Monday to discuss his situation with the team.
The Rockets have said they intend to fine White for every day he remains away from the team or does not attend sessions with a therapist arranged by the team. The Houston Chronicle has reported the Rockets have no plans to trade or release White.
On the situation with White, a Rockets spokesperson said the team stands by its previous statement, “We are committed to his long term success and we will continue to support him now and going forward.”
White, the 16th pick in June’s draft, has remained absent from the team in a dispute over how the Rockets are helping him confront his anxiety disorder.
White posted on Twitter Thursday: “I’m not PLANNING to quit, but if its between my HEALTH and BASKETBALL, health takes precedence.”
White, who has yet to play in a game, did not attend Monday’s game against Miami, Tuesday’s practice or Wednesday’s game against New Orleans. He earlier said on his Twitter account that the Rockets have been “inconsistent” in helping him.
that is really sad.
i hope he doesn’t have to leave his dream,
but your health always comes first.
whether it is a team owner or your boss,
will work you to death and then replace you with someone else with the quickness.
i learned that my health and happiness comes first.
if you can’t accept that and we can’t work out a compromise,
