Kendrick Perkins is a big man with a lot of pride and not a lot of skill. While he’s adept at post defense and screen-setting, his limitations have been exposed in this series trying to go against the speedy Spurs. It’s gotten so bad that many, including TNT’s Charles Barkley and others with the network, have concluded that this is simply not the series where he should play.
Perkins has apparently heard those criticisms and was waiting for a chance to respond. After making a nice play early in Game 3 against the Spurs, he found his chance, turning over to Steve Kerr and Reggie Miller to shout "TALK ABOUT THAT."
Here’s the GIF.
Somehow, I don’t think that’s going to convince Kerr and Miller to talk about how great Perkins is.
