So last night I was very happy with the Celtics loss and the Red Sox win that I watched the news. You see watching the news during the Celtics playoff run is something I just don’t do. The channel the Celtics play on has not been seen on my cable since 2003 (October to be exact) and as far as I am concerned that channel does not exist.
So I was kind of
happy ecstatic when the sports didn’t really focus on the Celtics. Sure they showed them and said they lost but the in depth did not appear and I was super excited. I actually got to watch the red sox highlights and see what the Bruins were up to on their spring vacation. (AKA the wait for Joe Thornton to finally show up in a playoff series)
I wasn’t so lucky on my T ride home from work. My radio tuned in to Michael Felger (a mistake I know) and listened to him say that trading Kendrick Perkins was a mistake. That Jeff Green was average and a dime a dozen in the NBA. This was funny to hear since when the trade happened Michael Felger had the exact opposite reaction and was whining that Perkins was overrated and would make no difference.
I was one of those people that stayed up last night to watch the Thunder/Grizz game. Would you like to know what Kendrick Perkins did in 3 Overtimes to help the Thunder win?
Perkins Rebound (Off:4 Def:3)
Perkins Tip Shot: Made (4 PTS)
Perkins Foul : Personal (5 PF)
Then he was replaced
Perkins Foul : Shooting (6 PF)
For those needing a news update about a press conference after watching the press conference the total for Perkins in 3 over times was 2 points, two rebounds and 2 fouls.
Would you like an update on all of Kendricks Perkins stats during the playoff series vs the Grizzlies?
Two points (1 of 3 shooting), 6 rebounds, 1 assist, two turn overs, NO blocked shots NO attempts and NO steals. +- IS A NEGATIVE 8 in 29 minutes (0 for 0 in free throws)
2 points, (1 for 2) 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 turnovers, 1 blocked shot and NO steals in 32 minutes +- IS A NEGATIVE 7 (in 32 minutes) (0 for 0 in free throws)
6 points (2 for 6) 13 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 turnover, 0 blocked shots and 1 steal in 30 minutes. +- was a +1 (0-0 in free throws)
4 points (2 for 2), 8 rebounds, 0 assists, 3 turnovers, 0 blocked shots and 0 steals in 34 minutes with a +- of NEGATIVE 10 in 34 minutes. ( o for 3 on free throws)
Do I need to go over the press conference again?
Kendrick Perkins makes no difference and is now the second most overpaid ex Celtics still playing in the NBA but hey at least Al Jefferson can score and rebounds.
If you want an update on what Perkins did during the first series. Look it up. It’s more of the same.
Pick a team for Dwight Howard. This is fun:)
He is so gonna be a Laker.
