Kendrick Perkins, the scowl-happy Oklahoma City center, didn’t like the fact that Chicago’s Joakim Noah was in the Thunder’s locker room Thursday night, so this awkwardness happened:
“They let anybody into the locker room, huh?” Perkins shouted after spotting Noah at the entrance of the dressing room while seated at his locker.
Russell Westbrook, from across the room, soon chimed in.
Noah then addressed Perkins directly, asking if he wanted him to leave and saying if Perkins wanted him out he would leave. Perkins, still seated, responded with an obscenity-laced retort, which he capped by saying “Get yo’ (expletive) up out of here.”
Reporters later saw Perkins and Noah briefly exchange words once more in the hallway when they crossed paths.
For starters, Noah didn’t just roll up into the Thunder’s locker room – Thabo Sefolosha brought him in. Why so salty, Perk?
I guess we should expect this kind of juvenile behavior from a guy who is mostly known as an enforcer/asshole. Remember in 2011 when he was arrested for being drunk in public and a police officer said Perkins “wanted to fight everyone?” Or in 2012 when, for no reason at all, he basically called LeBron a loser for being on twitter? Or earlier this year when Perkins threw a Gatorade bottle at a nail salon after his wife got into an argument with someone?
Perkins has anger issues. Noah is one of the coolest players in the NBA.
Gosh, I hope video surfaces so Perkins can be further exposed as a giant douche. The Thunder won, 107-95. Perkins didn’t take a shot in 21 minutes; Noah tallied 23 points and 12 rebounds.
