Found March 19, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
I want Royce White to address why he doesn’t use condoms and has 2 kids and 2 more kids on the way. Let’s talk about that instead of his whining about how everyone is out to get him. The Rockets have bent over backwards to accommodate White and he is still acting like a spoiled brat. “I went through the bumps and bruises of having to advocate for myself against a billion-dollar corporation. Other than that, I think I’ve actually been successful, if you look at the rate of success, or what could have went wrong. I could have easily been out of the league or blackballed or things like that. But that hasn’t happened yet… “I’m a problem because I’m not afraid to say what I think and I’m not afraid to stand alone. Even amongst the NBA community, the players, the union, the NBA office, and [commissioner] David Stern and [deputy commissioner] Adam Silver. I’m not afraid to stand alone in my own circle, and say, hey listen, you guys aren’t respecting mental health… “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, it’s not about doing what’s necessary, right? It’s about cutting overhead… Being efficient. And a lot of times, what’s best for us as human beings doesn’t meet that criteria for business people.” His comments just reek of being uppity and wanted to be treated as a privileged child. I am starting to wonder if he even has an anxiety condition or if he is just catfishing everyone. I know a lot of people who are scared to fly, I am even uncomfortable when things get bumpy, but you fight through it. Royce is just a spoiled baby.
