Perkins has been retired since 2018, while Serge Ibaka, with 33 years old protect the shirt milwaukee bucks Looking for one more ring before hanging up the sneakers. And after being in the last hours of the last episodes, it has become clear that the relationship between the two is more than bad.
Perkins is a regular on some ESPN broadcasts, where Does not avoid controversies and makes directly inflammatory comments For some of the league’s stars. Some laugh it off or take the opportunity to question him with his performance on the track, which is understood as ‘healthy bickering’. But this time in the face of the provocation with Ibaka, Congolese insiders have said and done enough gave a befitting reply to Perkins. Reason for this answer? Ibaka’s age was questioned upon his arrival in the NBA with the Thunder.
“Hey, Kendrick Perkins, I usually focus on the good things and don’t get caught up in what’s being said about me. But it’s a big disappointment to me that the person I shared the dressing room with spreads things that are not true Be relevant on television and social media. You can talk about my game, if I don’t do well, I will never feel bad. But what is not acceptable is to escalate without any reason. It is an insult to me, and I think to many Africans who have had to face such baseless accusations. When I was in OKC, if I was 30, what am I now… 45? The only truth is that I have never lied about my age and I have worked very hard every day without cheating or cheating and without ever getting suspended. Everyone in the NBA knows that’s the case. You cheated and you didn’t respect our game. Although I’m disappointed, I’m not surprised that something like this would turn out Who got his current job by breaking the dress code and spreading lies about two former teammates and brothers like Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. When KD was having a bad day, you used to criticize him from behind. When Russ played bad, you picked on him. You weren’t the benchmark in the locker room, And that’s how you behave in the media. I understand that everyone has to have a job and earn money to take care of their family, but You are living proof that not everyone does it with class and dignity. You’ve gone too far this time and I could say a lot more about you, but I’m not that kind of person.” A very rude response from Ibaka that made it clear that Perkins’ comment about his age was “Kevin Durant was only 23, Westbrook 22, Harden 22 and Ibaka 21. Well, Ibaka was probably 30 years old at that time. We already know how some people lie about their age…” He didn’t like it.
Oho @kendrickperkinsI count my blessings every day and I don’t usually react to comments about me. But it’s disappointing to hear that someone shares a locker room with someone spreading misinformation just to be relevant and get views on TV and social media. https://t.co/MRdXJwGpJZ

Far from publicly leaving behind this shameful outburst, Perkins did not hesitate to respond even through his social networks: “Are you talking about spreading lies?

I don’t want to… but you have to stop because you know what I know,” he explained.
