I must confess something:
Sad Kendrick Perkins makes me insanely happy.
This is Perk’s promo picture, taken upon his arrival in Oklahoma City, and it shall serve as my my little red balloon of happiness for the rest of the season, if not longer.
Honestly, after seeing this it’s almost really hard to hate the guy anymore. I mean sure, he’s an epic crybaby who has never commited a foul in his life, is one of the league leaders in technical fouls on a yearly basis and is constantly making these comically over-done tough guy faces (a la 50 cent), but dammit he got taken away from his home and now he’s just a big ol’ sad teddy bear.
Of course, his being traded away from Boston had alot to do with his asking for more than the Celtics were willing to pay for an offensively challenged center, but that doesn’t seem to make the big lug any less sad.
Personally. I’m almost as sad as he is, seeing as how his departure has taken some of the asshole factor from the Celtics. Good thing for them they still have plenty to spare.
