In response to PHX85014's comment:
The worst part of watching Perk was during game 5 when Nick Collison was desperately trying to tell Perk something as they wer walking off the floor, Perkins didn't even look at him and walked away like Collison wasn't even there. It was one of the most disrespectful things I've seen in a long time. I've noticed his body language toward Scott Brooks is also extremely disrespectful,,,
Bad teammate , big scowl , bad bady language, bad attitude with the referees, crappy free throw shooter, hands of stone, openly disrespecting his teammate in front of 18,000 paying customers.
Ironic that Perk was brought in because OKC thought he was an upgrade over Nick Collison , but last night it was Nick Collison who was out there in crunch time, making big baskets and getting rebounds, playing with fire and passion,,,,,
I can't wait to hear what Perk's OKC teammates really think of him in the coming days and weeks.....I predict the dirty laundry will get aired out soon and Perk will get his amnesty walking papers,
Perk will be playing next season for Scalabrine money or less and it won't be in OKC , bet every Thunder fan in OKC also regrets trading Jeff Green and Kristic for the FRAUD known as Perk...
The Celtics are sooooo lucky to have gotten a player of Jeff Green's caliber and character for that bum, anyone still complaining about Jeff Green's contract ? What a steal !
for me, one of the least attractive things about watching perkins as a celtic was the omnipresent scowl. there IS A PLACE for that as a game, but perkins is so dumb he overplayed the "scowl" out of all usefulness.
and like you say, what's worse than that, is that he became, in a short matter of time, WAY TOO IMPORTANT in his own mind. you can provide "veteran team leadership" without being a jerk. but not if you're perk. for my money, i'd rather have TEN collisons playing for me than one perk. EVER. collison is shorter but able to do so much more- like move around the floor, hit a shot, rebound, good team defender, etc.
