HOUSTON (AP) - Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant isn't worried about tweets from Houston rookie Royce White that say the Thunder are looking shaky.
``Who's he?'' Durant asked Friday at practice.
White is a first-round pick whose acknowledged anxiety disorder has kept him from playing for Houston this season. Earlier this week, White tweeted: ``Y'all are looking SHAAAKYY BAAABYY'' and used Durant's Twitter handle. It was one of a string of tweets where he kept repeating that the Thunder, who lead the series 3-2, were looking shaky.
White also tweeted that he ``can't hold a candle stick'' to Durant and said he doubted the All-Star cared what an ``anxiety ridden, overweight, d-leaguer has to say,'' though he stuck to his belief that the Thunder aren't playing well.
``I haven't seen him on the bench,'' Durant told reporters. ``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 are.''
Asked if comments like White's raise his ire, Durant brushed them off.
``I don't get fired up off stuff,'' Durant said. ``I get fired up just playing this game, enjoying the game. Like I said, I wish him the best. I wish he could have played and really felt this intensity for a playoff game, but I guess watching on TV is better.''
