Kendrick Perkins criticized the Golden State Warriors even when they dominated the entire NBA before winning multiple championships. So it’s no surprise that the former big NBA man is not dumping them now that they are rebuilding.
As the Warriors were overexploited for a second consecutive game against Oklahoma City on Sunday, Perkins said he saw this season as an opportunity to see what Stephen Curry and Steve Kerr were really up to. In Perk’s mind, not having Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant is not an excuse to fall in the bathroom.
Thunder gives Golden State this job now! It’s not fun when the rabbit got the rifle! Now we see what Steve Kerr really is !!!

We call our Kerr but the same for Steph. His job is to keep them in the games no matter what. In the same way that Russ, Bron and other elite players had to do when they were outnumbered.
The explosion is not an excuse for elites.

Lines reports that Perkins thinks that Curry – an MVP twice in the NBA – is overrated. He crushed it in the NBA finals last season and said he was coming up in big situations but that he was still getting a media pass. If Curry fails to lead the Warriors to a season at least decent, Perkins will probably feel that his argument has been proven.
Of course, Perkins is biased. His Cleveland Cavaliers teams lost twice to the Warriors in the NBA finals. He has a history of composure with Curry and some of his teammates. Many people will love watching the Golden State fight this year, and Perkins is certainly one of them.
