Kendrick Perkins and Kevin Durant acquired into a fairly heated argument on Twitter final night time as Russell Westbrook made his return to the Oklahoma Metropolis Thunder. Perkins was upset at how KD left the Thunder and even said that Westbrook was the most effective participant within the historical past of the franchise. KD felt some sort of approach about his and instantly gave Perkins a chunk of his thoughts. Perkins went on to say that Durant was a coward for going to the Golden State Warriors.
Gilbert Arenas did not take too kindly to Perkins’ take and took it upon himself to hop on Instagram this morning. Arenas wrote a prolonged publish about how Durant’s transfer to Golden State was warranted. It is clear that Arenas is taking KD’s aspect right here, though he made certain to say he often agrees with Perkins on 99 p.c of his takes.
“Solely two groups that can provide him these two bins [a title and Finals MVP] had been Golden State and Cavs, who had been the champs. Being the champs, Cavs weren’t making a transfer. Truly like me say this higher. Cavs being low cost asses wasn’t gonna signal KD (Dan Gilbert purchased that crew in 2005) the largest outdoors free agent they’ve signed was Larry Hughes in 2005. That was 15 years in the past. Contracts have doubled since then and that’s nonetheless the largest outdoors free agent signing. So the one crew that’s left was Golden State.”
It is a debate that will not be dying down anytime quickly though it is attention-grabbing to see Arenas come by with an opinion we’ve not heard voiced earlier than. If KD can win a title with Brooklyn, this entire dialog will lastly be put to mattress.
