Kevin Durant jokingly blames Kendrick Perkins influence for his technical fouls
Kevin Durant was called Sunday for his third technical foul in Oklahoma City’s past three games, and the star forward sent a joke about it after the game.

Kendrick Perkins is recognized as one of the more fiery players in the league. He’s known for his cheap shots against opposing players, and he is never afraid to stand up his opponents. You remember in November when he and Zach Randolph reportedly rumbled by the locker rooms after they were ejected from a game? Yeah, that’s how Perk rolls.
Durant, you may recall, was ejected from Wednesday’s game against the Nets after receiving two technical fouls for yelling at a referee. Sunday was his third tech, but he did manage 22 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists in the 104-92 win over the Toronto Raptors.
Between Perk, Serge Ibaka, and now Durant living the thug life, the Thunder are assembling a roster full of hardened criminals. Watch out, rest of the league, you’re looking at the latest version of the Bad Boys.
Of course our job would not be complete without showing the sick double-crossover Durant used on DeMar DeRozan during the game:
How do you defend that?
