Kendrick Perkins says Thunder aren’t stressed, tweets picture of Celtics ring
The Oklahoma City Thunder are heading in the wrong direction since Russell Westbrook went down with a knee injury. After putting the Houston Rockets in a 3-0 hole, the Thunder now find themselves preparing for Game 6 on the road. Kendrick Perkins is not concerned.
No team has ever come back to win an NBA playoff series after being down 0-3, but that hasn’t stopped the speculation. Some people feel as though the Thunder could be in trouble now that they have to adjust on the fly without their floor general, and there is certainly some truth to that. However, Perkins wanted his nearly 50,000 Twitter followers to know that the team is not panicking. He just had an interesting way of showing it.
You think we stressed out right now. Y’all crazy we got heart over here in OKC. Thunderup twitter.com/KendrickPerkin…

That’s great, but that would be a Boston Celtics championship ring. Perkins may have championship experience, but he is not going to carry the team to an NBA title. In my opinion, tweeting a picture of a Celtics ring doesn’t exactly help him prove his point.
