ESPN’s Jalen Rose and Kendrick Perkins hadn’t been seeing eye at all this week. Rose blasted Perkins, after his takes on Giannis Antetokounmpo being a sidekick and how the Bucks were the “dumbest” team in NBA Finals history.
“You know what happens, Greeny? Young folks like this that been doing this job for five years, they get one or two things right they get one or two catchphrases and they come over here with their Dr. Seuss lines, wearing their 80s pastor’s suits and think all of their takes are gonna be hot. So let me tell you a couple of things I heard Perk say about this series.”Didn’t he just slander coach Bud the entire year about not making adjustments?
“Hey Perk, the number one adjustment this year was giving the ball to Middleton the last couple of minutes in a game. Jrue Holiday isn’t the best two-way player in the NBA. Last night, you saw the best two way player in the NBA: that’s Giannis Antetokounmpo. And, Khris Middleton is not ‘that man,’ that happens to be the Greek Freak. Don’t try to flip it and say ‘now he’s superman.’”
Perkins went on to subliminally tweet Rose and explained how far that he came into the media world. Rose ended up wanting to get on a phone call with Perkins to resolve everything, and that’s what they apparently did. Rose has also issued a public apology to Perk for hurting his feelings and making him feel bad about things.
