Celtics.com recently put up their conversation with Kendrick Perkins… and one of the first questions is "who were some of the guys who were big influences in getting you to the NBA?"
His answer is absolutely priceless. He drops KG's name immediately… which is understandable. Then he drops this gem:
Ha… I love it. "Yeah… I saw those scrubs getting drafted and I thought 'THOSE guys are getting paid? Shoooooot… I gotta get mine!' "
Let me tell ya… I could listen to Perk talk all day. The drawl… the deliberate delivery… the lack of B.S. and a "yeah, I said it" kind of attitude behind everything he says. Pure awesome.
One other tidbit: He came into the league at 323 pounds. He's down to 270. Damn, Perk. You should give Sweetney some tips.
Sorry… couldn't resist one more shot.
