Video: Kendrick Perkins had a brutal time with Moses Moody’s name during NBA Draft

Kendrick Perkins

Kendrick Perkins had a tough time offering analysis of Arkansas guard Moses Moody’s selection during the NBA Draft on Thursday. It wasn’t because he didn’t know who Moody was or hadn’t seen him play. It was because Perkins just couldn’t handle the name.

The Golden State Warriors selected Moody with the 14th overall pick in the draft. When it came time for Perkins to offer his take on the selection, things didn’t go very well.

Perkins got there in the end, and to be fair, Moody’s name can be a bit of a tongue-twister if you’re trying to say it quickly. Still, plenty of people are having a good laugh at Perkins’ expense over this one.

Perkins has become known for his blunt and occasionally unpopular opinions, many of which he shares on the air. Some people he’s taken aim at probably won’t be too upset to see Perkins fumbling through his words like this.

Lakers reportedly trying to get into draft lottery

Some within the NBA are predicting a lot of trades surrounding the 2021 NBA Draft, and some of the rumors indicate a lot of talking going on behind the scenes.

The Los Angeles Lakers are one team that clearly has its sights set on making moves. According to J. Michael of the Indianapolis Star, the Lakers attempted to land the No. 13 pick from the Indiana Pacers in a trade involving Kyle Kuzma. The Pacers weren’t interested in Kuzma and declined.

The fact that the Lakers tried to move into the lottery suggests they’re serious about trying to improve the supporting cast around LeBron James and Anthony Davis. After a first round playoff exit, the team has made clear that pretty much anything and everything is on the table to get better around them.

One thing is also clear: Kuzma is available for trade, with his name coming up in multiple rumors. It remains to be seen if the Lakers continue to use him to try to move up in the draft, but there definitely appears to be some real interest in getting into the lottery.
