07:58 AM ET 02.14 | Royce White made another D-League appearance for Rio Grande Wednesday night, scoring six points, grabbing six rebounds and picking up four fouls in a little over 20 minutes. Whatever [White] has been doing the last few months while working out mental-health protocol with the team, sources connected to the team's NBDL team say it hasn't been conditioning work. The report from his first appearance is that he is woefully out of shape. Perhaps that shouldn't be a surprise, but it feeds the view of many around the league who are skeptical about just how committed White is to making the most of his chance at an NBA career.

He sat at home all day, no time to run? No time to work out? I'm sure his hands and wrists are well trained from all that time typing and posting messages on twitter/facebook.

For all his talk about health and well-being, he ended up unhealthy. Maybe that's all it was: talk.

He posted this on twitter with a picture "Had bus difficulties last night, Vipers & @HoustonRockets showing their committed to our new plan.".


LOL so travelling to 40 nba games by bus sounds like a plan huh?

QUOTE(#9):

what has this fat lump done to warrant second and third chances?

He would have worked harder - but that would have conflicted with his mental-health protocol.
