Once again, Kendrick Perkins was involved in a scrap with an opposing player, this time Phoenix’s Channing Frye at the end of the first half of the Suns’ 110-103 win over the Celtics.
Phoenix’s Amar’e Stoudemire was asked about Perkins’ maturity in his sixth NBA season. The Suns forward was quite candid.
“He”s a solid player out there, he loves to get physical. He’s aggressive,” Stoudemire said. “He keeps a lot of confrontation going. We try to play smart basketball from our standpoint. We try to stay out of the confrontation, really and just execute our plays offensively and defensively. But seeing sometimes he wants to keep it up, always mean, always mad. He don’t even have fun out there. He needs to learn to have fun on the basketball court and enjoy his life, enjoy the game.”
