Kendrick Perkins willing to end beef with Drake
Kendrick Perkins says that he is willing to put his beef with Drake aside.
Perkins and Drake had two verbal altercations during Game 1 of the Cleveland Cavaliers-Toronto Raptors on Tuesday. The first incident happened at halftime, and then there was a second incident after the game.
The NBA issued a warning to the rapper, who is an official ambassador for the Raptors.
There will not be any discipline from the NBA for Drake's incidents with Kendrick Perkins, but the league would appreciate if Drake would demonstrate more chill in the future.

Perkins, who was added to the Cavaliers’ roster right before the end of the regular season but has not dressed during the playoffs, says he’ll leave Drake alone if Drake leaves him alone.
“I’m here to support my teammates,” Perkins told ESPN before Game 2. “I’m here to represent the Cleveland Cavaliers. At the end of the day, it isn’t about Perk vs. Drake, that doesn’t even sound right. It’s the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. the Toronto Raptors. Besides, what could he possibly do to me? I mean, really. If he leaves me alone, I’ll leave him alone and that’s all there is.”
He has a point. Although if Drake wanted to do damage to Perkins, it would probably be through a bodyguard or security.
