    Team, I assume that you are indicating that Perkins played in Games 1 through 6 in last years (2010) finals. Not the 2008 finals that Perk was not a factor as indicated by the box scores. During the 2008 finals Perk missed Game 5 as reflected by this ESPN report,

    "
    LOS ANGELES -- Boston Celtics center Kendrick Perkins did not play in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Lakers because of a strained left shoulder.

    Leon Powe took Perkins' place in the starting lineup. It was the first playoff start of Powe's career."

    Perk did play in Games 1 though 6 last year, and unfortunately, when playing most of Game 6, he was not a factor.

    I believe Kobe was "tweaking" Shaq in his statement when implying that Shaq is not as good and effective as Perk. This Celtics team with the new additions, if we can believe Doc, Danny, and Shaq, that Shaq's about ready to start gearing up for the playoffs, are clearly a better team than last year's C's who were 27 and 27 with Perk during the last part of the season. In addition, even though the C's had Eddie, Posey, and PJ, the newly constructed Celtic team is equal to, or better, than the 2008 version.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Kobe on Perk : Thanks for the facts.  I've been trying to make this point, but have been too amazed by people not realizing his deficiencies to even think to look for stats to back up the argument.  Especially telling is game four.  Not sure how far behind they were when he separated his shoulder, but if he stays in the game it's 2 - 2, and who knows what happens from there.

    You are welcome Jallen. I think some of the C's fans are speaking from their hearts with respect to Perk. We all loved him. Now, if we were going to get excited about a center being the "cement", then one can't get excited about 6 rebounds a game. Bill Russell's average reached the number in the first quarter. Perk clearly benefitted from KG, Ray, Rajon, and some of the role player heroes that allowed the Celtics to go from a lottery team to the "best in class". Let's not forget the demand for Posey who, after the leaving this version of the C's, become an average plus player. Perk, like Posey, is cashing in on the perceived value that was created by playing with the Big 4. We all should be happy for Perk.

    Well here's to hoping Kob is a liar who is trying to bug Shaq

    based on Green's qualifying offer of $6mil next year is it so certain that he is even with the Celts next year?

    Lets not forget Perk just had a very serious knee injury.  He won't be 100% all season and very well could end nursing his injury down the stretch.

    He wants 5/50

    We'd dance in the streets if we just have to give him the 6m qualifying offer
