Kendrick Perkins: The Refs Don’t Like Us

Kendrick Perkins

Kendrick Perkins has figured out how to turn yesterday’s biggest non-story into an issue. Yesterday, some excuse-making Celtic fans spread word that two of the refs from Game 4 in Chicago were both Chicago natives. And get this, their families left the game wearing Chicago Bulls gear! Holy crap. If that’s the case, David Stern should probably investigate before we’ve got another Tim Donaghy scandal on our hands. NOT.

These conspiracy theorists now have more fuel in their fire thanks to Perkins because of his comments after practice yesterday.

“I don’t think the refs like the Boston Celtics,” he said after yesterday’s practice. When asked why, Perkins also was careful to indict his team. “I don’t know,” he said, breaking into a smile. “We’ve got a lot of talkers on this team, if you know what I mean.”

You don’t need to be a psychiatrist to see that incessant talking on the court would piss a ref off. So if you feel like refs don’t like the Celtics because you and your teammates are chirping up all the time – and that could very well adversely affect the team – then guess what? Stop talking.

    Every team says this when they take a “L”

  • Prof. TX

    You’re Kendrick Perkins, it’s not just the refs that don’t like you.

  • T$

    Agree. The Celtics complain about everything. It’s disgusting. They talk so much that I get tired of watching them play games. It’s on the same irritating level as watching Europeans flop all over the field during a scoccer match. There’s a fine line between intimidating the oppenent and looking like a whinning thug

    NBA’s response: Fine him!!!

  • bobbys

    god i hate the celtics
    STFU you losers

    It’s not that the refs that don’t like you, KP.

    It’s that every NBA fan that’s not a Celtics backer can’t stand your team’s attitude.

  • karizmatic

    Well game 4 was called a litle in the favor of Chicago but hey that’s homecourt advantage…the Celtics will get the same treatment in games 5 and 7.

  • Bifflefeet Bigsby

    I hate it when players complain about the refs because it takes their focus away from the game. It sounds like Boston is in trouble, though, because WINNERS don’t whine like swine.

  • Bifflefeet Bigsby

    OMFG I had to post again, sorry, but @that’s what’s up:

    Funniest. post. ever. on. earth.

    “was the wind blowing on that patch cos it looks crooked”


  • Celticsdada

    Wow look at the haters here. Just because he doesnt kiss their asses like Kobes and Lberons and the so called good guys of the NBA, that makees him a bad player and the refs hate him since ever he came into the league. There’s no secret there. Stern is a NY native, he hates the Celtics all his life. Fukking Bill Kennedy who had beef with Doc Rivers and the Celtics called game 4, and he is Chicago native. HELLO ??????????????

  • Celticsdada

    Good job quoting only that part andrew katz. How about the rest of the artile? Oh well…

    Until someone actually take our crown we still the CHAMPS !! and KObe is still a RAPIST and won NADA w/o Shaq.

  • doc

    Stop Talking?Then they would be the first team in the NBA to do that.its funny how dudes forget that everybody does things.Go look at a old Bulls game and look at Mike snapping on the refs.

  • Dennis Castro

    So when the Celts win it’s because of the team and it’s players/coaches, but when they lose, it’s everyone else’s fault but the players/coaches.

    Makes sense.

  • http://iannyb9@hotmail.com iannyb

    kendrick Perkins sucks,he might be the most disgusting player on a disgusting celtics teams.

    It’s no mystery that the Boston Celtics get all the calls. Doc Rivers cries about every foul that is called against his team. For the Celtics to be complaining about calls is insane. Maybe they should stop their antics on the court which have been all season, and is the reason why they have a reputation of being bullies.


  • nic



    There’s a difference between being an aggressive team and being an over-aggressive, arrogant team. I’ve never liked the Celtics, I’m from Detroit. But unfortunately I’m going to have to compare them to the Detroit team after they won the title. That’s when my Stones had a sense of entitlement, they felt the deserve the benefit of the calls, stopped playing and just talked the refs.

    Boston through their actions have earned the reputation of being assholes. I’m not knocking the skills of Boston they won a championship, but KPerkins, Eddie House, Big Baby, Powe, Mikki Moore, etc..roll players don’t talk about refs not liking you and not getting calls, SUPERSTARS get the fouls/benefit of the doubt. Shut your mouth and play basketball. You are in a 2-2 first round battle, focus on the game.

  • G

    the last line of #18 summed it all up perfectly

  • Celticsdada

    I’m not saying we lost because of the refs but they played a big part.

    “Look at last game: They called a couple of offensive fouls for moving screens on boston and most of them have actually been correct, but both Noah and Miller have yet to set a legal pick in this series and they’re not being called for anything.

    Not saying that’s why we lost or that the refs are doing this on purpose, but it’s been annoying to watch.”

    PERK is the best CEnter in the EAST !!!!!!!

  • Celticsdada

    How is perk a loser when he’s the champ and and got shinny ring while LEbron and Howard…etc aint got nothing. LOL at u haters

  • nic

    Being the best center in the East doesn’t really mean anything bro… D Howard is the only center in the east. K Perk wouldn’t survive in the Western Conference.

  • Celticsdada

    Until someone else take our crown WE STILL THE CHAMP baby, and KOBE IS STILL A RAPIST. KG is coming back

  • aleksi

    oh dont worry, your crown is gone after the playoffs. celtics dont stand a chance. enjoy the ride.

  • hadoken

    kendrick perkins = fugazi

  • kevin k

    well said AK, well said.

  • Celts Fan

    Perk needs to keep his mouth shut. I watched every second of the game and didn’t notice anything with the refs. Sure, there were plenty of bad calls, but overall, the officiating in the NBA has been terrible all season FOR EVERYONE. You know why we lost the game? Cuz Pierce nearly fell on his @$$ and couldn’t stay in front of Ben Gordon w/ 6 seconds to go in the first OT (and we didn’t foul.) The officiating had NOTHING to do with it.

    Having said all of that, you definitely shouldn’t have the dude that had a problem with Doc reffing the game (one of maybe 3 times I can remember I ref getting fined and it being public.) That just gives cry babies a crutch when your team loses. To me, there was no one to blame but the players. The refs had nothing to do with it.

  • Ian

    yo perkins fuck you

  • nic

    if perkins wants to see an example of bad officiating he can watch the Houston Portland game tonight. the refs love protecting Yao. BRoy gets molested at the rim and never gets a foul. Its really extraordinary watching. That’s not the reason Portland is down 3-1 but it is still amazing to watch the refs, espicially in the 1st quarter.

    Celticsdada says:

    hahahahahaha!!!! You posted that like Perkins actually had something to do with the Celts winning. If I remember correctly, the way the Celts won was by putting KG at the 5 and putting Posey at the 4 spot with P2 at the 3 and Rondo and Ray in the backcourt. Best center in the east that has a piece of $h!t on his chin! R U serious or are you just freaking out because everyone hates your team.

    PS. Fu%k you Kendrick “small face” Perkins. I wish it was you that Derrick Rose dunked on instead of Glen “fat baby” Davis.

  • http://www.f-the-refs.net Chicagorilla

    Sorry I can’t let this go, this fool actually had the nerve to complain about officiating like his team isn’t shooting 2847 more free throws than the Bulls during the series. Like Rondo doesn’t just run full speed into the bulls players, throwing the ball at the rim and getting a foul call. Or P2 pump faking then jumping into Salmons and Hinrich. I actually would love to meet this idiot, just to hit him in the grill.

  • rick 773

    Man I hope Celticsdada was being sarcastic when he called Perk the BEST CENTER IN THE EAST..I’m not even gonna talk about that B.S. you said about the refs being a big part of ya’ll losing. I can understand being a fan but you taking being a homer to the extreme. I had a lot of respect for dude because truthfully he’s beasting Noah and Miller but trying to get in the Refs ear to get a couple of calls is real soft.

  • quest???

    kendrick perkins and kevin garnett are the biggest bitches in the L. I hope one day Zaza Pachulia and Al Horford beat their asses in the middle of the court.

  • Ross

    The refs helped them get a ring last year. They’re probably just not used to it now, since Stern wants it to be Lakers/Cavs this year.

  • bob

    lmao are ou kidding me the celtics get more calls than ive ever seen, besides the jazz at home..

  • LakeShow84

    Yeah after he was allowed to RAPE Gasol in last years Finals..

    BET they dont like him NOW..

  • heartbreaker85

    celtics got no class. i used to love kg and his desire/passion for the game but kg’s running his mouth a lot forgetting that it took him xx years and 2 superstar teammates to finally get the chip. he only talks smack to 6 footers too.

  • Kudabeen

    Perkins plays 48 mins and doesn’t get one foul called on him…

    I think he wins…

    Aggressive teams always get calls on offense and get called on on D, so who cares.

    I never understood the constant complaining to refs…they don’t change their mind. If you just talk to them about the game they will pay attention to the little things that you are seeing too, but all the whining and yelling and mean mugging is lame…

    It takes away from the game, unless it is Sheed, because his breakdowns are comical and predictable at this point.

  • QQ

    I’m guessin Celticsdada is as ugly as Perkins.

    That is all.

    PS: Celtics complain about everything, and are forgetting the fact that for the past two years, two teams that they should have beaten easily ARE GIVING THEM EVERYTHING THAT THEY CAN HANDLE. Coincidence? Nope.

  • Derek

    Not only is the blog completely senseless, but there isn’t a single smart comment here either. You actually all sound like the same bunch of punks that play in that league. If you do not think NBA officiating is terrible, then you have never watched an NBA game.

  • UU

    well who the fuck would like that prickins
