Royce White Taking 34 Hour RV Ride To Game
Recently, Royce White and the Houston Rockets finally came to an agreement to get White back on the court. The rookie has started in the D-League, where he is sticking to driving to all games to avoid his fear of flying.
Even under drastic measures, White will not be flying. He would rather drive 34 hours in an RV, play the game, and turn around to take another 34 hour ride back. Via Ric Bucher:
Royce White is making the 34-hour drive in an RV because of his anxiety issues to play this one game for the Vipers and then turning around and making the 34-hour drive right back.
Seems a little crazy to travel a combined 68 hours in an RV to play in one D-League game, but at least Royce White is now making an effort for his relationship with the Rockets to work.
After being a first round pick, White was away from the team for most of the season in a public dispute that seemed to be getting pretty ugly.
