Royce White going after Kevin Durant

http://espn.go.com/nba/playoffs/2013/story/_/id/9235586/2013-nba-playoff...

Royce White has enough of his own problems and he doesn't need to go after one of he best players in the league. KD didn't have a great shooting game but he's carrying this team and the best player on the court while White can't get on an airplane without a couple Xanax. I'm sure that Duran't won't pay any attention to the guy who finished the year on the Rio Valley Vipers team but I shake my head when stupidity like this comes up. Just let Harden and the actual Houston Rocket players take care of the smack.

Wow.

I'm sure this guy has plenty of time to tweet while he's riding the bus to his next D-League game.

What's so wrong about it.

What's so wrong about it. It's not like he was cursing him out or anything. The Rockets shocked everyone last night by winning, let them have their fun.

I'm with you.

I can't stand Royce White and the self-victimizing he's been doing all year. However, the "jabs" he took via twitter here are nothing to get upset about. Sure, he probably should have just kept silent, but there's no reason for KD or anyone else to get angry about this. These comments were benign.

My thoughts

Who really cares what Royce White says? In all honestly, so many fans talk sh*t to players on Twitter all the time. What's the difference if Royce White states how he feels on Twitter?

I generally don't have a problem with players talking smack, but it seems a little silly for Royce White of all people to talk smack on the internet.

Royce is a nut case. No

Royce is a nut case. No professionalism whatsoever. Talking smack on the court is one thing, but this dude hasn't even stepped on court in regular season let alone the playoffs. Keyboard warrior at its finest.

White is trapped in his own

White is trapped in his own little world. Its what mental illness is. I don't see the harm in rooting for / talking a bit of smack for the organization your employed by. I agree that it appears to be bad form on his part since his career has been what it is so far... but whats a guy who suffers from social anxiety supposed to do? Its not like he'll get together with buddies at a sports bar to talk about the game. So he talks online to no one inparticular.

On a seperate note. Coming into this series, OKC clearly had the better team. Westbrook goes down and OKC loses the next 2. Perhaps this is because OKC is having trouble adjusting to play without their PG but perhaps its also a bit about Durant being slighly overrated aswell. Harden is surrounded with less talent then Durant has to work with yet the Rockets have won 2 straight on his back. 2 bad games by Durant? Maybe That doesn't make the player. However, this is the playoffs. Harden is efficiently carrying his team and Durant is not. Harden has been the best player this series.

Am I the only one who secretly hopes that Royce White never plays in the NBA? Or plays and turns into a giant bust.

i didnt see a problem

I know Royce has his problems and own responsibilities that he has failed to take care of

BUT what does any of that have to do with his tweet?
He only said the Thunder were looking shaky. It's the truth.

MOst players tweet about other games while they are watching. Just like when Nate Robinson was going off, you had several players saying stuff like the Nets better get somebody to guard that boy. It's the same thing.

I know and understand why people dislike Royce White, he brought it on himself, but this tweet is being blown out of proportion.

Players from outside

Players from outside organizations commenting on a game is totally different. He's talking smack to the opposing team over the internet. That &$#%#&@!'s for the court. It would be like Jordan Crawford tweeting Melo and talking smack, at least he did it on court lol

He won't be a Rocket at the

He won't be a Rocket at the end of the season so I guess he can take some shots while he's part of a team while he can.

Why would Durant pay

Why would Durant pay attention to a rookie diva attention whore? Earn some respect before you go and talk &$#%#&@! about one of the best players in the NBA.

Only thing Royce should be

Only thing Royce should be going after is a vasectomy.

He's just playing around.

He's just playing around. This isn't a big deal at all. If anything, people should be happy to see Royce White showing support for the Rockets. I understand the objection to White's actions since he's just a part time D-Leaguer at this point, but all types of people who couldn't even outplay a twelve year old run their mouths at NBA players on Twitter all the time. At least Royce White will most likely have to back it up on the court against KD and the Thunder at some point in the not too distant future.

Besides, referencing battle rap is always a cool thing to do in my book! He should've gone all the way and said: "I swear I'll run into any crib he might even maybe own and ya'll would think I'm Tom Cruise how I'll dump in (I'm dumping) KD homes (Kaitie Holmes)." That would have made things a little more interesting.

thank you

Somebody actually knows where he got "you looking shaky baby" from. Con said that about dot mob in a battle rap, that why I actually thought white tweets were funny unlike some of the serious people on here.

I'm glad we're on the same

I'm glad we're on the same page here! I think that 99% of people had no idea what Royce White was referencing. I just think it's funny that he quoted Conceited since Con spent some bars going after Kevin Durant in the Tsu Surf battle.

Oh wow y'all follow battle

Oh wow y'all follow battle rap too? Nice! I know Surf and Durant actually collabed on a track for Surf's album. KD can spit for real! That's dope you guys got the reference. Should've added a "slow it down, I just dissed you" to make it extra clear.

Anybody here post on RapMusic.com battle video archives? I post there as Gopher D'Gusto.

Yeah, KD's actually pretty

Yeah, KD's actually pretty nice with it. I don't know how much he's rapped, but he seems like a natural. He brought Surf out to a Thunder-Lakers game when they were working on the track together a few months ago. Here's a link to a video of their collabo/the game/Surf and KD just hanging out if you haven't seen it already: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTd6Wyynm-M

And, I don't post on RapMusic.com, but I go through some of the forums from time to time to see what people are saying about certain battles. It's always good to see people supporting the battle culture. I'm happy I'm not the only one on here who got Royce White's Conceited reference!

A. Unarguably stupid comments

A. Unarguably stupid comments from Royce. You're too scared to play in this league.

B. I read people talking (not here) about how this is going to cost the Rockets. Shut up. As if the Thunder aren't trying their hardest but now will because of these comments.

First he has a SUPER

First he has a SUPER disappointing season and barely plays, now he has the balls to tweet towards someone who has already earned the respect of the entire NBA? This kid is crazy.

Royce white choose

Royce white chose not to play in the playoffs said something like the scedual would be to much preassure. Why give the Thunder pin up material if you are unable to be part of the team? And statexd this morning he has gone negative to help him get his twitter numbers up.
