Kevin Durant Fires Back at Royce White: ‘Who is That?’

For Kevin Durant, it’s been a tad difficult keeping track of Houston Rockets players’ names throughout the first round Playoff series. As for people who haven’t played at all this season — let alone taken the floor during the postseason — KD has no time for them and their petty online trash talking. Sorry, Royce White. Per the Oklahoman: “Following his team’s shoot-around Friday morning in Houston, Durant responded. ‘Who is that?’ Durant asked when asked his reaction to White’s comments. Durant claimed he wasn’t aware of the comment and then asked again ‘Who is that?’ … ‘I haven’t seen him on the bench,’ Durant said. ‘I haven’t seen him on the bench. So, I mean, I’m not worried about guys that’s not even in our series. Ain’t that the guy that’s afraid to fly? Well I wish him the best, man, and if I see him next year I’ll let him know who we are.’ [...] ‘I don’t get fired up off stuff,’ Durant said. ‘I get fired up just by playing this game and enjoying the game. But like I said, I wish him the best. I wish he could have played. I wish he could have really felt this intensity in a playoff game. But I guess watching on TV is better.’”

    The whole “who is that” thing is corny to me. He’s heard of Royce White, if not before, at least once Royce mentioned his name. The more disrespectful play would have been to say “Oh Royce, the scrub who hasn’t played a minute in the NBA cuz he’s afraid of airplanes? Nah, I’m not worried about him.”

  • don

    would have tarnished his “humble and good guy” image but it would have been a great response

  • Max

    KD seems to be having trouble with amnesia..

  • lights out

    stop it, kd. you’re better than this.

    Royce White just flat shouldn’t be criticizing anyone for being shaky. That’s as far as my opinion on this matter goes. I have no respect for that clown.

  • KingBenjamin

    What Durant’s response should have looked like:

    Royce White: Y’all are looking SHAAKYY BAAABYY

    Kevin Durant:You mean like you when you gotta get on a plane?

  • shockexchange

    For people who never play, Jordan Crawford and Royce White sure stay in the headlines.

  • TBRK

    lol, “who is that” is very appropriate, nobody has even seen dude play….making fun of dude’s mental situation would just be a jerk move

  • LakeShow

    Yeah with this one it makes sense, cause who is Royce White…
    And he just couldn’t pronounce Asiks name the last time.

  • king

    He couldnt say all that scared to get on a plane stuff cause then people would find a way to twist it around, To where it seems like he is talking about people with anxiety and what not.

    I want to root for Royce White but he keeps making it harder for me. Seriously, wait until you’ve played your first game before talking trash. Even Jordan Crawford has more of a right to say sh*t than White.

    that will be messed up for people who have this disease bro.

    stop with the shine to this mental scrub

  • Billy Hoyle

    Royce White’s response to your comment “Who is nbk?”….LOL

  • Gaurav Pokharel

    Actually, I think he really couldn’t recall who he was….his follow up comments were:

    “He hasn’t played against us so I’m not worried about guys that’s not
    even in our series. Ain’t that the guy that can’t, that’s afraid to fly?
    I wish him the best. If I see him next year, I’ll let him know who we

    Not sure why SLAM didn’t include that in the quotes.

  • Dagger

    Because drama gets hits, and hits make money. I didn’t think Durant would pull a J.R. Smith, if only because he doesn’t seem lame like that.

  • russian guy

    The stupidity of Royce White absolutely kills me.He is messing with the best Scorer in Basketball and didn’t even play.Some dudes…man.He is one lucky man to have his talents and bullshitting a team into picking him.

  • The Seed

    KD has a chance to show why he is the MAN, too bad, he needs Westbrook. After this playoffs everybody will understand why Westbrook is the real leader of OKC and the team goes as Westbrook goes. Too bad, KD is the man and does not know how to handle it.

    does this mean we will get to read 38 more articles about rWhite & HOU?

    I am so excited I can’t wait.

  • danpowers

    uhm… if durant wouldve only replied with “who is that?” it wouldve just looked like an honest question instead of a shot “fired back”.
