Earlier this week, several members of the Oklahoma City Thunder got together to hang out. Players have their own lives and don’t alway spend their free time together, but some guys on the team hang out with certain teammates more often than others. We assumed this wasn’t really an issue for professional athletes until we saw a very sad comment from Kendrick Perkins.
On Monday, Thunder center Hasheem Thabeet posted a photo on Instagram of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka and some other OKC players kicking it outside of work. Then, Deadspin noticed the following comment under the photo:
I thought this team always supported each other? Several Thunder players got Perkins’ back when he kicked Joakim Noah out of their locker room last month, but they can’t even hit him up when they’re hanging out together? Poor Perk.
