Houston Rockets rookie Royce White says he is prepared to walk away from the NBA.

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.

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, who has yet to play in a game, did not attend Monday's game against Miami, Tuesday's practice or
Wednesday's game with New Orleans. He says on his Twitter account that the Rockets have been "inconsistent" in helping him.

The Rockets (4-4) face the Trail Blazers (3-5) at Portland on Friday night.

Inconsistent my ass. They've pulled out all the stops for him and he hasn't done anything. He hasn't attended a single therapy session and he's been ignoring all the arrangements by the Rockets to this point. The Rockets can't do anything for him if he insists on ignoring his problems the entire time instead of doing something about it. It's a damn shame because he's a very talented player.

I get that he has anxiety and all, but he's playing the victim card way too often. He is not the only person who has ever had to deal with that problem. If he can't figure out a way to make it work, or if he insists on just ignoring his problems instead of facing them head on, he doesn't need to be in the NBA.

Exactly. It'd be one thing if he was trying but failing, but he's not even attending practice or showing that he's trying to fight through this. It's obvious this is difficult for him, but he has to show he's willing to work on it instead of just being a drama queen.

If he walks away from this, I believe this could turn into something much more difficult in his life.

NBA is the mecca and he's about to let it all go. Traveling in the NBA is as safe as anything plus its all first class. He really is making the biggest mistake of his life.

It's his anxiety disorder that's causing all these problems and he's letting his disorder control his life instead of him controlling it

Pathetic. I have no sympathy for this guy. Go have fun working for McDonalds. See how the real world is like then lest see how much you care about your "anxiety" when you are broke.

My thoughts exactly. Sure, he might have some problems down the road dealing with it, but this does not warrant giving up the greatest thing to ever happen to him, an opportunity I'm sure all of us would ecstatically take.

Hes a little boy, maybe when he grows up to be a man he'll look back and go "Man, I [expletive]ed up".
