Royce White: Anxiety Disorder Scared Off Everyone Except for Kevin McHale

Grantland spent some time with talented forward Royce White leading up to the NBA draft and produced this incredible “hockumentary.” You must watch it. Now. White, who suffers from general anxiety disorder, was a star at Iowa State and had Top 10 talent, but fell to 16th in the draft due to his illness. The buildup to the 4-minute mark is terrific, and then White’s agent tells him everyone is “out” (passing on him), except for Kevin McHale (“the rest of the room is against you”). Riveting stuff.

Because you want to see it first!
