Kendrick Perkins has had his share of the crushes lately. He tweeted and called Kevin Durant for leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder and then considered Russell Westbrook the biggest player in the team’s history.

Yet the great man kept apologizing and went back and forth to explain his remarks, saying that the fact that he was the greatest did not mean that he was the best.

Perkins even cheated on his arguments and said that he and Durant were right after he apologized. He also tried to make his point by saying that Durant was the best player in the history of Warrior, even though Stephen Curry was the biggest:

It’s like talking about the Golden State Warriors, Steph Curry is the greatest Golden State Warrior of all time. You’re talking about the Toronto Raptors. Kyle Lowry is the biggest hawk of all time. Does that mean you’re the best player who ever played? No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. We all know that KD is in my opinion the best player to wear a Warriors sweater. We all know that KD was the best Thunder T-shirt company, Perkins told NBC Sports.

Maybe Perkins is right. Yes, Kevin Durant is one of the greatest players in the history of the game, perhaps even better than Stephen Currie, double MVP, triple NBA champion and best shooter in history.

However, we have to take his comments with a grain of salt, because of course he likes to blow up the arguments every time he gets the chance to make a statement. He also had a little sputtering with Curry on the sidelines during his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and we know Perk isn’t the kind of guy who deals lightly with those he doesn’t like.

Kendrick Perkins says he and Kevin Durant are straight. Then Durant called the best player wearing a Warriors T-shirt, while calling Stepha Curry the greatest warrior of all time. https://t.co/C13w8yNCHO pic.twitter.com/asYrzNUgpu
