Big Perk is off Raps bandwagon again 

Post#1 » by bongmarley » Sun Jun 28, 2020 2:05 pm

He’s all over ESPN last few days pumping up the Celtics as team to come out of east. You would think he would learn by now lol.

I don’t want to hear him bragging about picking raps anymore after this

Don't get why people put so much weight into what he has to say, or any analyst for that matter. Fans have unnecessarily put him on a pedestal as if his straight-forward, common sense analysis is anything groundbreaking. Most of these guys are prisoners of the moment, and are always flip-flopping between teams that they strongly back. It's all for clicks at this point.

When will people realize that an NBA "analyst's" opinion means as much as your own opinion - absolutely nothing, unless you're betting on games.

Did I not predicted this last season when you guys were calling him “uncle perk” ? I predicted this and you can go back and read the thread. Perk was never on the raptors bandwagon he was using the raptors bandwagon and since you guys like nothing more than American media props to stroke your egos you ate it up. I was never on the Perkins bandwagon because I Always knew the guy was doing it only because we weren’t playing the Celtics In the playoffs. So many raptor fans were following this guy and retweeting his every word as if he mysteriously became our number 1 supporter over night. Moral of the story is never n.t hug somebody that jumps on the bandwagon after the rainy days. Where were they when we were “Lebronto” ?

What's wrong with pumping up the Celtics? If that's what he feels is the best team in the East, nothing wrong with that. It's still Milwaukee..

He’s not a Raptors fan like you or I. He is a basketball fan and analyst, and he has the right to express whichever team he thinks will win.


Last year we had the best team. This year it may be someone else. There’s nothing wrong with saying that.

Stop this sadistic thinking. Analysts don’t take a marriage vow.

These guys need something to talk about so are just sharing their opinions. It doesn't matter. We also shouldn't put any stock in the regular season. A new season is starting.

Perkins is more annoying than Ryan Hollins, probably the WOAT player turned sports personality

First it was Greenie, then Jalen, now Perk.

Seems like they read an internal memo because preCOVID no one was picking the Celtics to come out of the East

It's all about ratings and ESPN is hurting big time now. He's paid by ESPN to be on these shows. You figure it out.

If he likes being on TV, specifically ESPN...he's got to toe the Disney line.

Remember when the memo came out about the Morey situation with China? That's us now, they aren't allowed to talk about the Raptors on air any more. At least not as the Champs or a team that is good. They act like we don't exist, it's on purpose.

Don't like it? Boycott Disney products.

Kemba is a fraud. Brad Stevens is overrated. Tatum is legit. But we’re just better than them. I hope we play them in the playoffs.

Celtics have no bench, Kemba's had only seven playoff games experience.

He's going to be looking at Tatum and Brown for what to do...because they all have way more experience than him.

No scoring down low either, because no real C.

Not to go too OT, but what was the Morey memo?

Perk said he's torn between the Raps and Celtics. There's nothing wrong with picking the Celtics. I too, believe whoever wins the second round matchup between TOR/BOS will beat the Bucks in the conference finals and come out of the East.
We're very equal in terms of talent. They're also well coached but I give the coaching edge to us which is why I have the Raptors beating the Celtics in 7.
