Good. In these here times, mental health issues are being more and more recognized, so it was only a matter of time before something like this happened.

I'm happy that this isn't really a "wild west standoff," for it will be easier for players with issues like such in the future to get accommodated properly.
My pic is now, and will be Fab Melo until he posts his first official NBA dbl-dbl. This may be permanent.

Good - hopefully all will turn out good for both parties.

HOU needs him.

But Royce needs to be healthy, too.

Being sick and tired of the whole White situation has jaded my opinion of the man, but after seeing the HBO story and looking at his situation objectively, I've got to give White credit. 

He stood by his principles, even though it could have cost him millions, to protect his health.  You can have all the money in the world, but if you don't have your health, you have nothing.  I hope things work out for him.
