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

by May 03, 2013

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.'”
