Royce White Tweets At Kevin Durant, Says Thunder 'Looking Shaaakyy'

Posted: Updated:

After the Rockets staved off playoff elimination with a Game 5 win in Oklahoma City on Wednesday night, Royce White, tweeted that the Thunder "looked shook."

Royce White
And... that's why you play the games. That team just looked shook. "They're looking shaky baby."

White also tweeted a similar message directly at Thunder star Kevin Durant.

Royce White
... Y'all are looking SHAAAKYY BAAABYY. 😳

A first-round pick of the Rockets in the 2012 NBA Draft, White, didn't play in the NBA this season as he engaged in a public battle with the organization about how best to handle his anxiety disorder during the season. White, who did spend some time in the D-League during the 2012-2013 season, defended his tweets as they started to gain more attention. In response to the negative feedback from others on Twitter, White referred to himself as "only a spectator" and kept repeating the original message.

Royce White
Relax ppl, I can't hold a candle stick to on the court. He's a deadly player, But... they're still looking SHAAAKYY BAAABYY! Lol

On Thursday, White continued to respond to the negative reaction on Twitter, insisting that he wasn't precluded from commenting on the series just because he hadn't played with the team. He also retweeted some angry responses.

Royce White
I'm scared of planes, I haven't played... I'm not ashamed of that, just like I wasn't before. STILL! & looking SHAAAKYY.

Royce White
I'm sure doesn't care what the anxiety ridden, overweight, d-leaguer has to say. It was funny to me though, + true.

Royce White
I keep seeing the phrase "you can't talk...", but I am + I'm having a great time doing it. On top of that you're commenting + upset.

YOU calling anyone hilarious. If HOU dont hold your hand crossing street to go to games...then u dont play.

Royce White is too crazy to play in the NBA, seriously mentally unstable but he takes shots at Durant on twitter. You're a loser
