“Everybody didn’t follow Jesus” – LeBron James’ unfollow spree draws reaction out of Kendrick Perkins

Kendrick Perkins and LeBron James

On Friday, Kendrick Perkins was taken aback when LeBron James, his former teammate, stopped following him on X. Perkins claims that he’s handling the situation well, considering his outburst in response to LeBron’s decision to stop following him. In addition, he took to X to put forward his views regarding James unfollowing him. Perkins compared himself to Jesus in a hilarious reaction to James unfollowing him.

Everybody didn’t follow Jesus, I’ll be ok.

This was somewhat of an atrocious statement made by Perkins. Also, one of the reasons James must’ve unfollowed Perkins would have been Perkins’ recent harsh comments involving LeBron James after James shared his opinions on the Dallas Mavericks’ Kyrie Irving.

At one point, Perkins and James seemed to be quite close, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. James’ outburst about no longer being Kyrie Irving’s teammate following the guard’s assistance in the Dallas Mavericks’ run to the NBA Finals catalyzed this entire event. As a result, Perkins criticized James for attempting to steal the spotlight away from the Boston Celtics and Mavericks.

On the Sports side, LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers side endured a difficult 2023-24 NBA season. Despite making the NBA playoffs, they did not perform at their best as they were knocked out by the defending champions, Denver Nuggets in round 1 of the playoffs. James and Co will be hoping to provide a fitting comeback next season.

LeBron James ranked 4th by Kendrick Perkins in his ranking of most clutch playoff performers

LeBron James has been the most clutch player in the NBA season over seasons. However, former Boston Celtics legend, Kendrick Perkins did not believe so as he ranked LeBron 4th in his ranking of the most clutch playoff performers. This was somewhat of an insult to one of the best players in the sport.

Perkins praised James, although he gave Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, and Robert Horry higher rankings than James.

It remains to be seen how James responds to all these verdicts and criticism made regarding him on the court for his Lakers side. With James’ fierce competitive side, everyone will be expecting him to shut his critics up as soon as possible.
