It’s important to know when enough is enough. Kendrick Perkins, however, seems to struggle with that message.
Perkins took to Twitter on Thursday to tease his upcoming appearance on ESPN’s “SportsCenter.” In doing so, he took yet another swipe at Kevin Durant, claiming Durant’s former teammate Russell Westbrook “is the best player to have ever put on a(n) Oklahoma City Thunder Jersey.”
Naturally, the comment sparked some debate. But Perk persisted, noting Durant and the Thunder lost in the second round without Westbrook — and was even there to witness it.
So, Durant chimed in with a tweet of his own.
“Yea and our starting center @KendrickPerkins averaged a whopping 2 and 3 during that series. U played hard tho champ lol,” he chirped back.
