The biggest thing big Kendrick Perkins may bring to the Thunder...Attitude!
His rebounding and defense and low-post threat will be valuable, but Perks swagger may be his greatest asset. You got the feeling, even in last years playoff showdown, that the young Thunder were still a little intimidated by the Lakers. But not Perk.
Hes already said Phil Jackson is arrogant. He hates "everything" about Pau Gasol and "hes soft." Awesome!
OKC has a bully.
KD and Russ can just go play and let Perk be the bodyguard...an enforcer both on the court and in the papers...hes big brother...a walking technical foul...in a bad mood on a good day.
Will he lead OKC to an NBA title? Well see. Maybe. Will he be intimidated by the Spurs or Mavs or Lakers. Ha! Uhhh No.
