Kevin Durant Calls Kendrick Perkins ‘Bad Influence’ After Thunder Star Picks Up String of Technical Fouls

Kevin Durant is showing his fiery side of late, and he places the blame firmly on his scowling teammate, Kendrick Perkins.

Durant spat a four-letter word at a referee last week to draw his first career ejection, but his misbehavior did not end there. Over the last three games, the Thunder star has accumulated three technical fouls. Such Rasheed Wallace-like behavior is out of character for the mild-mannered Durant, who went to Twitter to explain himself, jokingly.

At least Durant now has something in common with Celtics fans: They both blame everything on the 2011 trade that sent Perkins to Oklahoma City.
