Kevin Durant and Kendrick Perkins got into a back-and-forth on Twitter.
Russell Westbrook was honored on Thursday when the Houston Rockets took on his old team the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Perkins said that Westbrook is the best player in OKC franchise history. A lot of folks, including Boston Celtics analyst Marc D'Amico, disagreed because Durant had been on the Thunder
He put together the best career within that organization, but he’s definitely not the best player to have ever put on a jersey for them. Cmon Perk!— Marc D'Amico (@Marc_DAmico) January 9, 2020
Perkins then implied that Durant needed Westbrook on OKC for that team to be successful, which got Durant's attention.
KD lost in the second round without Russ when I was there. So what that mean?— Kendrick Perkins (@KendrickPerkins) January 9, 2020
Yea and our starting center @KendrickPerkins averaged a whopping 2 and 3 during that series. U played hard tho champ lol— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) January 10, 2020
Boy stop you did the weakest move in NBA History!!! Up on a team 3-1 in the western conference finals and then go join them the following season?! Heart of Champion right there— Kendrick Perkins (@KendrickPerkins) January 10, 2020
Weak is starting at center, playing real minutes with no production. Should’ve worked on your skills as much as I did— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) January 10, 2020
That’s fine!!! You worked that hard and still had to go join a 73-9 team. Truth be told you don’t even feel like a real Champ, you have hard time sleeping at night huh knowing that you took the coward way out!!!— Kendrick Perkins (@KendrickPerkins) January 10, 2020
Who do you agree with?
