If you thought the Royce White saga couldn’t get any worse, well, you thought wrong. White, the anxiety-riddled first round pick of the Houston Rockets — who recently joined (finally) the Rockets’ D-League affiliate Rio Grande Valley Vipers — hopped on a video chat with Huffington Post Sports and dropped perhaps the most explosive comment of his season-long war of words with the league that employs him: If I was to make an educated guess, I would guess that Adam Silver and David Stern and the Rockets organization, some other owners in the league, GMs, want me gone. And why do they want me gone? Because business is about convenience, not about doing what’s necessary. It’s about cutting overhead… And a lot of times, what’s best for us as human beings doesn’t meet that criteria for business people. End well, this might not, for Mr. White.
