If his many phobias suddenly disappeared, hell yeah. Kid is an extremely talented player. However, that talent means jack shite if he is afraid to travel and afraid of big crowds.

They probably would disappear, the way he seems to act.

I wouldn't trade Henry for White. Ok, actually I would, but I just don't think White will ever make it in the NBA. There's just too much travel involved

Have you ever been in a car wreck and then for the next several months you freak out a little every time you see a car coming up too fast in the rear view mirror? What he's dealing with is like that only much more intense and its not going away in a few months when he gets back to normal. This is normal for him.

He acts like a straight brawd on twitter though, especially the situation and he doesn't seem o try to make them better. His twitter stuff is funny man.

I watched the Royce White special on HBO Sports. He makes it sound like he would be willing to play and travel as long as the Rockets use an independent doctor. Seems like both sides are letting their pride get in the way and no one is willing to budge.

This. He just wants to be able to see who he chooses and have them cover it still. There were a few other minor things, that I can't remember, but he's said the travel plan was set up way before the season.

As for the question, I would pause and think, but I would say no. Seems way too likely that we might inadvertently offend him and then he's in hiding again, cue Sweet Brown.

I say no. I still think Rivers can become at least a decent bench player. It's definitely going to take him some time but he's a very hard worker and will do whatever it takes to get himself better.

I thought the buzz phrases were "hustle guy" "high motor" "hard worker" "high IQ" "gamer"?

Well I guess Austin applies to about half of them, so he's right on track.
