According to Souhan, Royce is 'fearlessly forging a new path'. Sorry Jim, but this is the same old downward trail he's been on for years. And, of course, none of it is his fault. He's just another victim of society. I hoped he'd discover individual responsibility once he got into IA ST (thanks for trying, Hoiberg) and take charge of what still could have been a promising future. Instead, it's same-o, same-o. I feel sorry for McHale, trying to give him still another chance at the NBA level, for with Mr. White no good deed seems to go unpunished. Sad.

You could see this coming. He got his guaranteed money for basically doing nothing. When will people figure out that charachter really counts. Good luck to Royce in the future.

I'm not sure how anyone can see this as anything but sad. Hoping for the best for this young man.

RW better figure it out and fast. The big money pro basketball offers doesn't last long. Try working a real job for a couple of months. It will be a wake up call so RW put your big boy pants on and get out there. Trust me working day on end suck.

How can you expect to be a NBA player that can't travel? It's like wanting to be a doctor but you're afraid of blood. Travel goes hand in hand with professional sports.

Heres some advice from Dr. Marcus. The pyschological undertow of having to embrace the responsibility of forging a new path and professional career for yourself seems to be overwhelming your motor and judgement skills to the point where you are utilizing non compliant behaviors in a workplace that requires them to an extreme level in order to become successful thus forcing you into situations that make you look bad and stake claims that none of it is your fault. Take 500,000 milligrams of Grow Up and call me in the morning.

Royce needs to decide if he really wants to play basketball (and move forward like never before)... If so, he need's to get over his phobia's (I suggest immersion therapy, spend off-season riding planes, until he realizes he is not going to die, if he sets foot on one), if not, then he needs to move on! This is so simple, but he is being coddled by a bunch of bozo's that have advanced degree's in bs/pc'ness!
