this is a good thread, powerful words from KingStarbury3, thanks for sharing.
The Royce White situation is strange because the kid is a rookie who is evidently not ready for prime time. no rookie can expect to get major playing time unless you're a Dion Waiters, Damion Lillard type. the fact that he's also anxious about flying brings a large perspective to his mental health; he's not well. for the organization to fine him for missing games, not being with the team and for missing appts with psychiatrist is all they know how to do. who knows if they're giving him meds? IMHO, a BIG mistake. the corporate drugs, as have been pointed out by KS3 and AFP, do not address the base problems, only the symptoms.
Smoking weed can help, as long as the mind does not wander into anxiety, because that can make things even worse. the kind bud must be treated with respect, and accompanied by positive thought, to produce positive results.
Xanax and other mind-altering drugs are very bad and should only be administered in situations of life and death to prevent one going over the edge. too many doctors are paid off my drug companies to recommend certain drugs, with no clue to the root of the mental stress.
I wish Royce White the best of luck getting his mind in gear, I hope he finds positive role models to keep his entire body in shape, from his brain to his game. i also wish all KO members positive thoughts, that is where all good things spring from.
