    Royce White battles for mental health — his and others’

    "Mental health is talked about in such hush-hush tones," White told USA TODAY Sports. "You have people who are starting to face the stigma and are now finally admitting they have a mental health disorder. That helps other people with anxiety see that there are people who deal with it and it helps everybody else in society see how prevalent it is."

    White has Generalized Anxiety Disorder, defined by the NIMH as a disorder in which people “go through the day filled with exaggerated worry and tension, even though there is little or nothing to provoke it. They anticipate disaster and are overly concerned about health issues, money, family problems or difficulties at work. Sometimes just the thought of getting through the day produces anxiety.”

    Since going public with his mental health struggles one year ago, White discovered his calling is not necessarily on a basketball court. He has become an outspoken, if not stubborn, advocate for mental health and the rights of those who suffer from mental illness.

    Lin knows as well as any current or former Knick how special a reception can be in the Garden. He was the toast of the town last season, when the arena was electric with Lin putting on show after show.

    "It will always have a special place no matter how long I play just because that was the beginning for me. Anytime you have a stretch like that, you’ll remember it forever. It’ll always have a special place in my heart for sure."

    "I saw Kevin and had an emotional moment with him." — Kevin Garnett

    Kevin McHale supported Kevin Garnett as he jumped from high school to the NBA. Friday, Garnett supported McHale as he continues to go through an emotionally devastating period in his life.

    After McHale’s Houston Rockets beat Garnett’s Boston Celtics, the pair united for an extended and teary hug. McHale’s 23-year-old daughter, Sasha, died last month after a battle with Lupus.

    This video is too powerful for words.
