Kendrick Perkins on Warriors: 'Steph Curry is the best player but Draymond Green is the heart and soul on that team'

0 3
Kendrick Perkins: I always say that Steph Curry is the best player on that team, but Draymond Green is the heart and soul of that team. Now, with that being said, there comes a time where it could be a bit excessive and that’s something that Draymond has to control. Because at this point, you’re not a young guy, you’re a veteran, you’re a multiple All-Star, NBA champion. So, you know better. Draymond is a very intelligent guy and he has the respect of the referees. So he’s allowed to get away with a little bit more and rightfully so. He’s earned that respect because he probably does have a relationship with the majority of the refs. But, he’s battle-tested enough – four-time NBA champion – you know, you can’t ask him to change. He is who he is and that’s not a bad thing.

Draymond is the finesse king, yall. He’s the only man in history who can stomp on a guy’s chest, choke out someone else and then wally-slap another dude and yet cash in that behavior to star in a phone commercial about personal “growth.”

Gut-check win for the Warriors in Orlando on the second night of a b2b. No Jonathan Kuminga. Draymond Green ejected after four minutes. Steph Curry cold. Magic made several pushes. But the defense stood up, the young guys rebounded well and Steph closed. – 9:22 PM

More on this storyline

95.7 The Game: Steve Kerr on why he thinks Steph Curry got emotional after Draymond got ejected: “Every game being so important. And us fighting for everything and for Draymond to get kicked out three minutes in. It was really unforgivable. And I think Steph may have been a little upset with himself for not pulling Draymond out of there but I think mostly it was just, come on, man.” (via @WillardAndDibs ) -via Twitter / March 28, 2024
ClutchPoints: These are the players with the most regular season ejections in the last 25 seasons 👀 🔹 Rasheed Wallace with 25 games 🔹 Draymond Green with 19 games 🔹 DeMarcus Cousins with 17 games Dray has tied the most this season with 4 (career-high) 😬 -via Twitter @ClutchPointsApp / March 28, 2024
ClutchPoints: “I got ejected four minutes into the [Warriors-Magic] game. Just can’t do it… To Steph [Curry’s] point, I have to be on the floor and whatever that means. You just have to do that.” — Draymond Green 🗣 (via @TheVolumeSports) -via Twitter @ClutchPointsApp / March 28, 2024
Kendrick Perkins: When you see a team that’s a veteran team like that, that has been inconsistent, that means there’s not a real voice in the locker room. And KD has the resume, he has the credentials to be that voice. And whether that be calling guys out or lifting guys up, in order for the Phoenix Suns to take that next step, he has to be uncomfortable. And I said this about him a month ago, the Phoenix Suns haven’t had a leader since Chris Paul left. That doesn’t mean a guy that’s not gonna go out there and produce numbers and do what he do, but an actual leader. That’s why they’re one of the worst fourth-quarter teams, if not the worst fourth-quarter team in the league. That comes with leadership. -via HoopsHype / March 30, 2024
Do you think Jalen Brunson is the best PG right now? How far do you think the Knicks can go this season? Kendrick Perkins: If the Knicks were healthy – that means having Julius Randle, OG Anunoby back in the lineup – the Knicks could actually go to the NBA Finals. They’re equipped to win now. They got great depth. Their defense is ferocious. They play with a tenacity like no other, led by Tom Thibodeau. But right now – and I call them the Villanova boys with the three-headed monster led by Jalen Brunson – I wouldn’t be surprised if they reached the Conference Finals if they could get to the No. 2 or 3 seed and prevent from seeing the Celtics in the second-round matchup. -via HoopsHype / March 30, 2024
I saw a stat that had Jayson Tatum with the lowest field goal percentage during crunch time for superstars. What do you think they should do in crunch time to maybe not be so predictable against other teams? Kendrick Perkins: Well, I think sometimes you gotta run misdirection and other times, you might have to run plays for other players. You do have Jrue Holiday on the roster, he’s battle-tested, and you do have Derrick White.  Doc Rivers used to always say just because I draw up your play doesn’t mean it’s your shot. And I think the world has painted this narrative that if superstars don’t take the last shot, they don’t have a killer mindset and that’s not the case. We have seen time and time again when LeBron James passed up on shots and got great shots for others, wide-open looks. -via HoopsHype / March 30, 2024
