Kendrick Perkins on Giannis Antetokounmpo
Kendrick Perkins a former NBA player and now a NBA analyst at NBA on ESPN showed love towards Greek Freak after his remarkable performance in the win against Charlotte Hornets. Giannis came up in clutch and got his hand on the win with a good layup while being defended with contact.
Kendrick Perkins praised Giannis Antetokounmpo via his personal Twitter handle saying: “40-12-9!!! That was the most dominant player in the NBA stat line tonight. Btw his name his Giannis! Carry on…” this wasn’t really expected from Kendrick since he called Giannis as Robin and Khris Middleton Batman during the 2021 NBA playoffs. Today Perkins observed the match-up and appreciated Giannis for his performance adding his dominance in the league and crediting him right.
Milwaukee are at 4th position in the eastern conference ranking which actually is a tie for 2nd ,3rd and 4th. If the streaks for winning 8 games continues they may be leading the east soon and run for the championship again since they already are the defending champions and have a good roaster with great team chemistry.
