so if this dude cannot fly...what is he doing in the nba? maybe he have should have conquered his fear/anxiety of flying before entering the draft...
Anxiety/fear doesn't sound like the case here, sounds like a true phobia. If that's the case then this isn't something that can 'just be conquered' - it's a legitimate disorder that can be crippling and is life long. Those that want to have a life eventually learn to cope and manage it. White will eventually find ways to manage his phobia so he can fly regularly - not like he and the Rockets didn't know what they were getting into in the first place.

If this is an anxiety disorder, then let him get a doctors note for some kush
