Royce White did something for the 76ers that he wasn’t willing to do with the Rockets – get on a plane. Despite his well documented anxiety issues and fear of flying, most people wont think getting on a plane 1 time to play the Bobcats in a preseason game is that big of a deal for a guy with a $3.3 million contract but it shows he’s trying to and wants to fit in with the 76ers. This guy has a lot of talent and you never know, things might start clicking, he helps them win some games and shows why he was the 16th pick in the 2012 draft….then the Sixers will sit him because he’s hurting their chances at getting future #1 pick Andrew Wiggins.
I’m kidding about the Sixers sitting him but I do hope White gets it together and doesn’t have to sit out too many away games this season. “#BeWell friend.”
