Kendrick Perkins continues throwing shade at Warriors, Steph Curry
Kendrick Perkins was critical of the Golden State Warriors even when they were dominating the entire NBA en route to multiple championships, so it’s hardly a surprise that the former NBA big man is wasting no time dumping on them now that they are rebuilding.
As the Warriors were getting blown out for a second straight game against the Oklahoma City on Sunday, Perkins said he views this season as an opportunity to see what Stephen Curry and Steve Kerr are really made of. In Perk’s mind, not having Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant is not an excuse to fall into the toilet.
Thunder giving Golden State that work right now! It’s no Fun when the Rabbit got the Gun! Now we get to see what Steve Kerr is really about!!!

We calling our Kerr but same for Steph. His job is to keep them in games no matter what. The same way Russ, Bron and other elite players had to do when they were short handed.
Getting blown out is not excused when you’re elite.

Perkins thinks Curry — a two-time NBA MVP — is overrated. He crushed him during the NBA Finals last season and said he comes up small in big situations but always gets a pass from the media. If Curry can’t carry the Warriors to at least a decent season, Perkins will likely feel his point has been proven.
Of course, Perkins is biased. His Cleveland Cavaliers teams lost to the Warriors twice in the NBA Finals, and he has a history of bad blood with Curry and some of his teammates. A lot of people are going to enjoy watching Golden State struggle this year, and Perkins is certainly among them.
