Perk Has Me Confused

Kendrick Perkins talked with the Globe’s Julian Benbow about his league leading 8 technical fouls. I read the article and I’m not really sure what the hell he’s talking about.

“Yeah they fine me,” said Perkins after practice yesterday, two days after a dunk, a yell, and a mix-up with Chris Bosh in Toronto earned him his eighth technical of the season, and a fine total of $9,500. “But I don’t really see it like that. It ain’t really putting a dent in my pocket.”

So he’s not deterred by the fines. I’m detecting an I-don’t-give-a-shit attitude.

“This is what I’m trying to explain to y’all,” he said. “I’m not trying to be out there getting techs. It’s just something, you get caught up in the heat of the moment. It’s something I can’t control, but I’m not trying to get techs. I’m not trying to let them take a thousand dollars out my pockets every time.”

Ok…now I get it. You can’t control your emotions. So there’s no hope for him? And on second thought, the wasted money seems to be bothering him.

“I’m going to change,” he said. “But there’s nothing I can do about it now. They already issued the techs out to me. It ain’t like I can go get them back.”

Wait. How can you change if it’s something you can’t control?

  1. He wasn’t drafted because he’s smart. He was drafted becasue he’s a BEAST

  2. and this is why drafting straight out of high school is a bad idea.

  3. Lebron, Kobe, KG, etc… ?

  4. Lebron, Kobe, KG, all would have been the same quality players had they gone to college for a year or two. college wouldn’t have diminished their ability. The programs and Coaching in college gear you up for the pros WAY better than any high school program.

    Problem is, Perk thinks he’s KG, and he’s following in KG’s footsteps, Mouth-wise.

    KG can get away with this stuff because he’s KG.

    Perk can’t.

  5. With all this schoolboy whining about the tough defense and emotion the Celtics have, you can see where this is all going.

    The ref’s will be calling it so close that one look at Kobe will receive a foul. All this dirty play stuff is just a ruse to get an edge on the Celtics and the gullible are biting.

    Laker’s may beat the Celtics in the Championship with the ref’s not letting the champs play tough defense. if I was the Celtics, I would not let that stop me until all my guys have fouled out to show how foolish the league had become,

    They want the Laker’s to beat the Celtics in the “WNBA” Championship this year.

    Sigh
