Kendrick Perkins is a former NBA player who now is a host at ESPN’s First Take and also a player analyst for the same company. This time, Kendrick Perkins is viral in the headlines, as he defended Tee Morant and LaVar Ball for their unliked actions and exaggerated involvements. Both are proud fathers and have their heads up as their sons have made it to the league and are already established players. LaVar Ball has Lonzo Ball and LaMelo Ball in the league and is waiting for Gelo Ball to find a spot. On the other hand, Tee Morant’s son JA Morant is dominating the league and has made it to the western conference semi-finals and has also been a part of the MVP conversation.
LaVar Ball is one of the most famous dads around as he had his own show “Ball in the Family” and is also an established businessman who achieved his dream of getting his sons into the league. He also made a lot of noise around during Lonzo Ball’s trade to New Orleans Pelicans and LaMelo Ball’s draft. His actions also got him banned from some places and networks and he also deserved some of it. But now even when he’s good and out of the headlines for a while he’s still getting criticized on the internet. As many believe LaVar Ball walked so Tee Morant can run. But Kendrick Perkins is trying to serve them justice as he defended them online.
Tee Morant is honestly just getting hated for being a supportive father and enjoying his time in the front row at his son’s game. He may have some unique interactions with others like Karl Anthony Towns’ father, Usher, Stephen Curry, and others but he isn’t annoying to anyone and is getting criticized unnecessarily. Kendrick Perkins knowing it all tweeted in their defense.
