Kendrick Perkins rips ‘coward’ Kevin Durant in crazy Twitter beef

Kevin Durant

Kendrick Perkins took aim at his former teammate Kevin Durant during a Twitter beef that got personal on Thursday night.

Matters began when Perkins tweeted early Thursday that he was going on “SportsCenter” to share his opinion on why Russell Westbrook is “Mr. Thunder” and the best player to ever play for the Thunder.

Perk’s declaration was clearly a shot at Durant, because KD is widely recognized as a superior player to Westbrook but left the Thunder. Celtics media personality Marc D’Amico called out Perkins for the take, and the two traded responses.

Well guess what? It didn’t take long for Durant to chime in. Durant took a shot at Perkins, pointing out the former Thunder center’s poor stats.

Perkins then broke out the bazooka, calling out Durant for making the “weakest move in NBA history” for leaving the Thunder to join the Warriors.

Durant told someone else he responded to Perkins because the former Thunder center has been jabbing him for a while, so he decided to finally hit back.

Durant may regret things, because Perkins delivered the knockout blow, hitting Durant deep by saying the former MVP “took the coward way out” by joining the Warriors.

That sort of barb gets under Durant’s skin and hits him right in his biggest insecurity. Perkins knew exactly where to get his former teammate and didn’t hold back.

Perkins may show total favoritism, but one thing he does not do is hide his true feelings.
