Houston Rockets rookie Royce White – who has yet to make his NBA debut – has made a name for himself this year on Twitter.
He says what he feels and rarely seems to hold back.
Last night after Houston’s 107-100 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, White tweeted at Kevin Durant.

White later backed up his tweets and called Durant a “deadly player.”
The truth is that the Thunder have looked pretty shaky since Russell Westbrook’s injury. They are in a very tough situation trying to learn on the fly how to play without the guy that ran the show for them all season.
The Thunder don’t seem to really be making great strides either. The offense still ends up with Durant doing everything and when he’s not, his teammates look lost quite often. Worst of all the defense has been struggling too and giving up way too many open looks for the Rockets on the perimeter. The Thunder need to figure that out as well.
I don’t really care what White tweets and I’m not one to tell him to shut up. That’s the job of the Thunder. A win Friday night in Houston will do the job.
Maybe the Thunder can use this as motivation although they probably don’t really care.
