05:59 PM ET 01.03 | Houston Rockets forward Royce White made some more public comments about his public spat with the team over his anxiety disorder, but he was able to make clear how unique this situation really is. In an interview on Sirius XM, White said that while he is arguing with the Rockets, his cause is bigger than that. "This is about who ??? in general ??? has executive authority in medical situations???" White said. "Right now a GM does not have to listen to the medical advice of even his own doctors." White said the situation was about being "medically logical," not trying to "screw over" the Rockets.

I agree with MMAFan. This guy is just a clown. The Rockets bent over backward for him already. They even tried to send him to the development league so that he can continue to sharpen his skills without having to travel much. But I guess that was "beneath" him to play for the development league...

The Rockets should just eat that contract and wish him good luck. It sure looks like he signed that big contract and now that he has the money now all of a sudden his mental health prevents him from playing. He says he wants to focus on his mental health. So then why doesn't he just quit basketball to focus on it instead of trying whatever it is he's trying with the Rockets. I agree with what you guys said on here. He's a clown.
