Kendrick Perkins attempted to clear the air regarding his feud with his former teammate Kevin Durant.
Perkins and Durant traded barbs on Twitter months ago due to some re-emerging conversations of Durant’s exit from the Oklahoma City Thunder.
“I’m all right with KD. He’s all right with me. … and … To me, we got too many nerds on TV. What people don’t understand is that KD thought I was shooting a slug at him — I wasn’t.
I was praising Russell Westbrook on his day. What people don’t understand is, Russ, to me, is the greatest Thunder of all time. Is he the best player to ever wear a Thunder jersey? No, that’s Kevin Durant. But Russell Westbrook is the greatest Thunder of all time.
In my opinion, I think that Kyle Lowry is the greatest Raptor of all time. Is he the best Raptor to ever put on the jersey? No, but he’s the greatest player in the franchise’s history.
That’s my opinion, and KD was so caught up in thinking that I’m shooting a slug at him, which I wasn’t. At the end of the day, we had a little Twitter beef, but it ain’t nothing that we haven’t gotten past or anything to that nature,” Perkins told Joe Vardon of The Athletic.
