Celtics Morning Joe: Keeping up with the Perk overrated banter

Posted by shawn cassidy on August 31, 2011 at 4:00 AM

I'm sorry for those out there that think Perk is overrated. ESPN with another laugher to read this morning. Check this quote out.

Spencer Percy, Queen City Hoops: Fiction. Ibaka is young, a force on the glass and a defensive specimen. He even showed improved shooting range last season, so he's a part of the OKC future in my eyes, but if you think that you're going to win a championship with Kendrick Perkins as your starting center, uh, well, think again. Most overrated player in the league.

First of all the Celtics won an NBA championship with Perk as the starting center. How do you not know that? Your writing for the global sports media giant! Perk proved you wrong three years ago. Hey Percey 2007 called, and  they want their prediction back about Perk. Perk won't score 20 a night,but his physical presence, and his desire to overcome his down fall on the offensive end gives him an edge. When you have guys like Durant,and Westbrook,and a Harden do you need Perk to score? Yes at times,but you don't want him taking 8 shot attempts per game. You want Perk for defense,and to clean up on the glass. Perk wasn't traded out of Boston because he's  overrated. We found out the hard way that the Celtics needed Perk,and he's a big reason they lost in the second round. The Celtics could have won the Miami series if Perk was around,and of course Rondo healthy. That's another story all together.

Perk is overrated,but he can win titles as the starting center. He's done it before,and he can do it in OKC

Perkins is not overrated. No one that I've ever seen is rating him as an elite center. What he is is a guy that is willing to do the work a center is supposed to do, and that is so rare today, that he has great value to a team. He's tough, he takes up a lot of space and dominates the paint physically, and he constantly watches the opposing offense, helping out constantly. Guys like Ibaka play better alongside a guy like Perkins. What he does shows up in other people's numbers. When we had him as the anchor for our defense, the other guys could play more aggressively on defense, which made our D killer.
The more people bash Perkins, the more they betray their own ignorance and folly.
