Reasons NBA Fans Should Celebrate Royce White's Return to the NBA

Royce White has arrived in Rio Grande Valley and is officially ready to play basketball for the Houston Rockets, or at least their D-League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

White tweeted about his arrival, and it seems to be an announcement met with a ton of relief from everybody involved.

White was assigned to Rio Grande twice already, but has refused to go because of what he called an unsafe atmosphere and decisions being made solely by Houston's doctors with no collaboration with White's doctor.

The next few months will doubtlessly be met with mixed reaction to White, with boos scattered in with a few cheers here and there. But it really seems like this is an important mark in the NBA season, for reasons that have very little to do with basketball, and a few that do.

It's exciting to see White finally getting to playing basketball, and there's something for anybody with an opinion on the issue to be happy about.
