The Houston Rockets have the Oklahoma City Thunder on the ropes right now. Although they still trail 3-2 in their best-of-7 playoff series with Kevin Durant & Co., the Rockets have looked like the better team ever since the Thunder lost Russell Westbrook for the rest of the postseason because of a knee injury.
Still, if we were the Rockets, we would not want to do anything to make the Thunder mad. But that's exactly what Rockets benchwarmer Royce White just did. After the Rockets beat the Thunder 107-100 in OKC last night, he jumped on Twitter and threw some shots at the Thunder and even called KD out directly. Here's what he had to say:
It's ALOT of tough B-BALL fans on twitter... Lol! I'm a spectator right now, I'll say whatever the f**k I want. Swing when you see me.— Royce White (@Highway_30) May 2, 2013
Do ppl ACTUALLY think if they tweet enough I'm going to change? "Never change when you're winning." Say what I want...#FreedomOfSpeech— Royce White (@Highway_30) May 2, 2013
Ok, enough playing with the all twitter/b-ball fanatics. Back to regularly scheduled programming... #BeWell— Royce White (@Highway_30) May 2, 2013
Dude…really? If you actually played and could back up your tough talk, we might—might!—let you slide for doing this. But you do realize that this was just about the dumbest thing that you could do at this point in the series, right? You better stay faaaaaaar away from James Harden and the rest of the Rockets starting five at practice today. They aren't going to be real happy with you.
