Royce White trashes Kevin Durant on Twitter

Royce White has always made the news for the majority of the wrong reasons. Whether it’s his severe anxiety of flying, not showing up to NBA games or practice, or denying a chance to play in the NBA D-League.

Rockets' White afraid to get on plane

Royce White couldn't wait any longer. Last weekend, just before the Houston Rockets opened training camp, he called his agent and told him he had a problem.

Houston Rockets Tweet wrong school for their own draft pick (photo)

I can understand why you might be confused as to where Royce White went to school. He started out committed to the Minnesota Golden Gophers, but that of course didn’t work out too well for Tubby Smith and company. He then went to the Big Ten island of misfit toys, otherwise known as Iowa State University. Like other malcontents, he flourished in Ames and got himself taken 16th...
