GIF: Airborne Westbrook Throws Over-Shoulder Pass To Perkins For Dunk

Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, Kendrick Perkins

This play by the Oklahoma City Thunder looks like something straight out of early 2000s video game NBA Street…until Kendrick Perkins is the one finishing it, that is. Watch an airborne Russell Westbrook toss a no-look, over-shoulder pass to Perkins for a dunk after Kevin Durant throws him an errant lob in their team’s 127-99 win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday.

Report: Three-Team Trade Nixed, But OKC Could Still Get Brook Lopez

Kendrick Perkins, Brook Lopez

Welp, it seems the Nets weren’t interested in Brooklyn’s Born Ready. After reports surfaced last night of a proposed three-team swap sending Brook Lopez to Oklahoma City, Jarrett Jack and Jeremy Lamb to Charlotte and Lance Stephenson to Brooklyn, it fell apart today because of Brooklyn’s unwillingness to take on Stephenson. But the Thunder are determined to get Brook and his fragile foot, and they could still receive the Nets center in exchange for Kendrick Perkins. You read that right. Read More »

Kings’ Rudy Gay On Thunder’s Kendrick Perkins: “He’s A Clown To Me”

Kendrick Perkins, Rudy Gay

Remember when Kendrick Perkins called out his team for losing to the Sacramento Kings? Rudy Gay certainly does. Before he meets Perkins for a second time this season on Tuesday, Gay called the Oklahoma City Thunder’s mean-mugging center “a clown.” Read More »

Rondo, Pierce, Garnett, Perkins Share Group Text; Ray Allen Not Included

Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo

Time passes. Things change. People move on. But like the bond it forges, a championship can’t be taken away. Every member of the 2008 Boston Celtics will forever live in basketball lore. Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, and Kendrick Perkins would apparently prefer if one of their former championship-winning teammates wasn’t included. After his Washington Wizards lost to the Cs in Bean Town yesterday, Pierce said that he, KG, Rondo, and Perk share a group text; notably absent from the chain was Allen. Read More »

Video: Kendrick Perkins’ Post-Up On Anthony Davis Goes Predictably Poorly

Kendrick Perkins, Anthony Davis

If there was ever a time when the Oklahoma City Thunder would abandon their time-honored tradition of granting Kendrick Perkins a nightly post-up chance, you’d think Kevin Durant’s debut would be it. Nah. The better option would clearly be giving Big Perk an opportunity against Anthony Davis. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Steven Adams On Guarding Big Al & Z-Bo, Life Without KD & Russ, And More

Steven Adams

When the Thunder traded James Harden to the Rockets, it seemed like the team got absolutely nothing in return. Kevin Martin wasn’t able to replace Harden’s production and Jeremy Lamb never developed into the dangerous offensive weapon the Thunder had hoped he would.

But the Thunder also received the No. 12 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft as part of the deal, which they used to select Pittsburgh’s Steven Adams. It’s a pick that makes Oklahoma City feel as if they’ve salvaged a valuable piece for their team after the infamous trade with Houston. Read More »

Mo Speights On Scoring 28 Points VS Thunder: “Shout Out To [Kendrick] Perkins”

Marreese Speights

Reserve big man Marreese Speights played his best game of an excellent season in the Golden State Warriors’ 88-84 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, scoring a team-high 28 points (11-18 FGs) in only 25 minutes of play. After the contest, Speights credited Oklahoma City’s mean-mugging, trash-talking backup Kendrick Perkins as inspiration for his ultra-aggressive, even contentious performance: “Shout out to Perkins for helping me get this game.” Read More »

No Kevin Durant? No Russell Westbrook? Absence of the All-NBA tandem for the Oklahoma City Thunder will prove no worry if Kendrick Perkins keeps smashing on helpless defenders. Watch the mean-mugging big man take rare flight against the Milwaukee Bucks for a powerful, pretty common dunk that got his team’s bench comically excited. Read More »

Serge Ibaka & Kendrick Perkins Freeze Out Reggie Jackson After Selfish Play

Deron Williams, Reggie Jackson

Like Kawhi Leonard with the Spurs and Greg Monroe with the Pistons, Oklahoma City Thunder backup point guard and sometime off-guard Reggie Jackson didn’t agree to an extension before the Oct. 31 deadline, making him a restricted free agent July 1, 2015. Recent comments from Jackson combined with his self-serving play, though, led Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka to perform some in-house team policing during Monday night’s loss 31-point loss to the Nets.
