Am I doing this right?
Good news. I hope this gets Royce on the right track and he dominates the D-League!
I could care less what happens to this overly self entitled brat who thinks the world owes him. There are many people out there working there hands raw that have a lot more going against them it makes me ashamed that this guy thinks he is owed more than them.
I don't know about Royce except he was a Cyclone and played great for us. I tend to overlook the negative when someone does that. Hope he does well in the pros.
LET ME ROYCE PLAY!
Many on this board hammered Gottlieb for his opinon about Royce and the NBA. He was right. I say that as someone who deals with clinical anxiety, and as someone who has helped many others. The best thing Royce can do is find his way to manage. Flaming out and blaming others will hurt the "cause." But 1) getting the help he needs and deserves, and then 2) proving himself on the court, will do more to help the cause than anything else he says, tweets, writes, or toots.
Shoot, he joins the team a day after they play the energy
I hope he shows up in decent shape on 2/11 because him playing basketball is like watching an artist do work, but this guy has some character flaws that are just pet peeves of mine.
I'll continue to send him tweets about how he's going to be flipping my burgers at McDonalds, how planes aren't that scary, and how the 16th pick was flushed down the drain. At least until he's back in Houston. I need to keep getting retweets from him to gain more followers for myself. #BeWell2013
Not once did Royce reduce himself to name-calling or bad mouthing the Rockets franchise. He simply stated his case and the issues he had, and how they differed from the Rockets' point of view, then refused to give in until those issues were dealt with in a manner acceptable to both parties. Sure, he tweeted a lot about his thoughts and the goings on, so what!! So it's okay to post about a dunk, or a home run, or a fantastic TD catch, or some hottie, but serious issues are off limits? C'mon, man!!
I believe that in the future, this case will provide much needed insight into dealing with players with specific, diagnosed psychological disorders that affect their every day lives, and will benefit both the players and the NBA. This at least gives them a starting point.
I applaud most of you here for your support of Royce, and wonder if others can ever try to see both sides to a story, or are simply condemned to being judgmental *****. You can't put yourself in another person's shoes, so don't fool yourself into thinking you can understand in the least what they're going through.
I will believe it when I see his name on a box score.
