    Re: Kendrick Perkins

    Notice that he played well with Garnett. Remove Garnett from the equation and he's an average player. 

    Probably doesn't have the same level of respect for his team mates like he did in Boston. That's all I can put it down to. Although the guy does look more fit now. Played very good D on Howard when he was in Orlando. So he is capable.

    Back up centre these days at best. I don't see any player on the Thunder roster who has the presence of KG. 

    I think he'd do really well with The Spurs. Stronger environment than The Thunder and guys there who have leadership qualities like KG.  I think he'd thrive in Brooklyn as well. Because of KG and Pierce being there.

    That's two guys we dumped just in time ... Perk and Big Baby !!!

     

     



    how did we dump big baby just in time?  just in time for him to keep improving (in PER performance in points, rebounds, and overall maturity, leadership, continuing to expand his game?  and just in time for bass to come in and underachieve for us- proof positive that doc rivers not only doesn't know how to coach young bigs but doesn't care a thing about them.  that's just doc.

     

    you serious with the quip or what?!

    Improving?  Perkins had The LOWEST PER in the NBA last year.  He was bad to begin with and is now  devolving.

    In retrospect, cant agree on dumping BBD..  he improved in a lot of ways and was certainly a more valuable player than Bass...

    Unfortunately, its my belief Doc and his incompetence is what cost us BBD.. Just another player Doc couldnt handle.

    Yeah, I agree, but "incompetency" is a stronger word than I would use.  A good coach gets the most out of his players.  Doc clearly did not have a positive relationship with some players, especially the younger ones, and I think he ruined the confidence and productivity of some.  That is a major reason Doc would have been a disaster as a coach during the rebuild.  I see Lee, Bradley and Green thriving without Doc.  BBD is head and shoulders better than Bass.  Wish we had him back.

    Hi,

    I agree with 37stories. BBD and Perk in green are in the past.

    As for Perk being lost in OKC. I think it should've been expected, kind of.

    Here, in Boston, he didn't have to score much - just set picks and grab an occasional rebound. The defensive end was where he earned his perceived high value. But it was a very unique setup that, among other things, masked his deficiencies and promoted his strengths.

    Now he found himself in completely different system that doesn't utilize many of his skills.

    Perk's only skill was that he was a big 6'10" and had KG underneath to help him on D. Now he is just 6'10"

    YES, just like doc and his incompetence cost bass' productivity and jerlame o'neal's too- i'm talking when o'neal was healthy he should have been more than he was for us. 


    doc clearly had a demented daddy dearest thing with davis that wasto the detriment of the team and then telling bass "no more post up looks for you" was as dumb a move as ever could be made- bass averaged .8 points per post up look- not bad.  not lifetime ban bad.  that number is even halfway good.  not like we had an abundance of post players anyway!

    I am commenting on the fact that neither one of these players is worth talking about as a major loss for the Celtics and that people on this board show a lack of knowledge by continuing to talk about them as "oh if we only still had davis and Perkins"

    They are journeymen. No one cares about either of them.

    Fact: Kendrick Perkins was and is a severely limited NBA player.  Even with that he had a very defined role on the Celtics due to Garnett and rest of the starting team.  At eight million a year he is probably the most overpaid player in the NBA and if not that the least talented. He is not worth much more discussion even with the new era of rebuilding.

    Kendrick Perkins working to have some semblance of an offensive game

    Kurt Helin

     

    Aug 12, 2013, 11:11 AM EDT

    29 Comments Kendrick PerkinsAP

    Last season, other teams largely would ignoreKendrick Perkins on the offensive end. The Thunder would try to get him going pretty much every night, throwing the ball to him in the post on the first couple trips down the court, getting him some touches before letting Kevin Durant andRussell Westbrook take over.

    How did it work? Perkins shot a career low 45.7 percent and his PER of 8.2 was the lowest in the NBA of anyone getting 25 minutes a game or more. The Thunder’s starting five was +10.6 per 48 minutes when he was on the court last season. Take out Perkins and replace him in that same lineup with Hasheem Thabeet and the Thunder were +19.3 per 48 minutes.

    The Thunder didn’t amnesty Perkins this summer, but they need to do something to have more out of him on offense, and he told the Oklahoman he was working on that.

    -------------------------------

    This article doesn't even get into how many passes were lost off his stone hands.  I was NEVER a Perkins fan and was overjoyed when Danny traded him.  I find that most fans who defended Perkins and protested his trade also support Rondo.  Just an observation.

     



    Perkins was ok, not great, with Boston because the tempo was not all that fast.  Perkins might be the slowest player in the NBA, and running to keep up with the likes of Westbrook, whom I don't like at all as a PG (the ball's in his hands too much), and Durant, et al.  Perkins just doesn't fit their profile.  He needs a slow-down team to give him sufficient opportunity to get up and down the court.  Too bad he never was college material because the old "Princeton offense" was just made for him.
