Kendrick Perkins Doesn't Hold Back in Criticizing KD

Published April 27, 2024 at 5:35 PM

ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins continues to make waves in the NBA playoffs, offering his unfiltered opinions on player performances. This time, he's turned his attention to superstar Kevin Durant, and his remarks are anything but flattering.

Durant finds himself in a dire situation, with his Phoenix Suns trailing 0-3 to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The disappointing turn of events in the playoffs has left many questioning Durant's impact on the series.

Perkins, never one to mince words, didn't hold back in his assessment of Durant's struggles.
"Anthony Edwards ain't asking or waiting for the torch to be passed. He walked into Kevin Durant's house, snatched that MF off the table and walked out the front door," Perkins remarked.

The blunt criticism from Perkins comes as Durant faces scrutiny for his underwhelming performance in the playoffs. Despite being viewed as a future Hall of Famer and a cornerstone of the Suns' roster, Durant has failed to deliver when it matters most.

Adding fuel to the fire, Perkins acknowledged the rise of Anthony Edwards, who has emerged as a formidable force for the Timberwolves. Edwards' bold statement prior to facing Durant and the Suns reflects his confidence and determination to make his mark on the league.

With Edwards leading Minnesota to a commanding series lead over Phoenix, Perkins' assertion that the torch has been passed from Durant to the young star holds weight. As the playoffs unfold, all eyes will be on Durant and the Suns to see if they can mount a comeback or if Edwards will continue to shine in the spotlight.
