All this for a paycheck.

Now that I’m back here full time, I cannot wait to troll this clown and expose all of his covered up antics.

Let’s start it off:

https://www.tmz.com/2013/10/10/nba-star-kendrick-perkins-arrested-allegedly-punched-woman-in-face/

Oklahoma City Thunder big man Kendrick Perkins was arrested today after allegedly punching a woman in the face outside of a nightclub in July.

Officials say 28-year-old Perkins and his brother-in-law Quincy Alpough were outside Nox nightclub in Harris County, Texas when they got into an altercation with a woman named Mikeeta Cotton.

Cotton claims she was driving her car in front of the club and got into a fender bender with Alpough's female cousin.

Cotton says the woman attacked her ... and Alpough quickly joined in, pushing her and yelling.

Cotton claims Perkins -- who's 6'10" also entered the fracas and punched her brother in the head ... and then smacked her in the face with a closed fist.

A third person says Alpough elbowed her in the throat -- knocking her unconscious.

Cops investigated the situation and decided there was enough evidence to charge Perkins with misdemeanor assault. He was released on $1,000 bond.



Perkins is a terrible person and he’s also the biggest coon in the NBA. There’s alot of **** he got covered up while a member of OKC. That clown better STFU before these articles become trendy again. Thankfully for him, nobody cared about him to rightfully crucify his ass.


SO not only is this man a COON but he beats women!? oh hell NO. It's time to troll this son of a bitch!!

Perkins really went on TV and cried. Either KD hit a nerve and/or Perkins is looking for some attention. Perkins wanted to talk all that trash, but he went on TV to cry once he got called out on it. Perkins not only took personal shots at Kyrie, but then he told everyone how he was gonna leak locker room stuff to the world (whether he had information or not is not the point) to make Kyrie look bad and to get himself some recognition as a media member. For Perkins to do that as a former player, that's being a sellout. Since everyone is mentioning it on social media, hell yeah that's worse than KD joining the Warriors (not that I have a damn about it in the first place).

Let me take this a step further Rich, the reason why KD called Perk a "sell out" (he should have called him a coon, but I understand why he can't) is because he not only went on the air repeatedly to trash Kyrie, but he called him a bird brain on national television. As a Black man, you don't do that to another Black man like that. You don't insult his intelligence. Perk literally dog whistled to racists by saying that. He violated big time. And then he had the nerve to go on TV and cry...he's a 6'10 minstrel show for ESPN. That's all he is.

It was utterly pathetic to see ESPN come to Perkins' defense, and instead blame KD/Kyrie, while Perkins has been the unprovoked instigator all along. He especially some really low classless **** on twitter that he ended up deleting. But ESPN wanted to completely overlook his tweets and the fact that he trashed Kyrie's intelligence on national TV. Stephen A Smith even had the nerve to pull the "you're betraying your race by dividing instead of uniting!" card on KD. An absolute disgrace.

Perkins and Stephen A are just a couple of clowns trying to get ESPN some views. Sad that the way they're doing it is by trying to tear down a guy that is rightly using his platform to call attention to an issue that has affected this country for far too long. Some guys just care more about their own paychecks than they do about their communities.

Just remember this conversation started with your prejudicial statement about white people not caring about anyone besides themselves. But please keep showing your ignorance making more generalized statements about races, im sure that will help the conversation.

Stating that black people make up 13% of the population doesn't mean someone's racist, it just means they can read a **** pie chart and do the math. So spare me your hallucinations regarding my intentions. If you want to enact change (pass laws etc) you need a majority, which means you need to add people to your coalition not push them away. Thankfully the black people I know are more inclusive and reasonable than you are, so I'll dismiss your negativity for what it is: Ignorant rage.


I'll stand with MDB anyday. because im not an ignorant racist piece of trash and i support all my brothers and sisters.

people who need ton constantly point out they arent racist are usually racist. its pretty obvious who isnt and those people dont need to argue they arent.


Thanks my dude i appreciate that very much. How's the family doing?


We are doing ok. Thankfully my job in IT is unaffected by lockdowns and i can work remote (we actually got busier with this pandemic). Wife got furloughed. but thinks she will be back by august. we can manage bills on my salary as we dont need daycare while shes out of work.

Its been good to be working from home. much more time with my daughter as she just turned 1, started walking, lots of firsts.

the social injustice stuff is hard. wife doesnt like when i attend the protests (scared for my safety) and doesnt like that im so vocal against police brutality and corrupt judges in our community and town hall. but its not something i really am willing to budge on right now

how are you?

how are you?


I'm well, thank you. I've been working from home like you are. I have to help my parents out with groceries and things like that since they are in their early 70s so i have been avoiding outside contact as much as possible outside of shopping for supplies.

That's awesome that you're trying to help man, I appreciate that if no one else tells you. Knowing people care means a lot. Stay safe though.

I believe you said your sibling was a front line worker, how are they??

Player's Tribune wrote:I was in the car with my sister-in-law — Jrue’s sister — Lauren. (Lauren Holiday and Lauren Holiday, I know, it’s a lot of Lauren Holiday. We make it work.) Lauren and I are pretty close, and do a lot together. And we’d just now finished our morning workout — and were driving to grab some postgym Starbucks.

But then suddenly, right as we were pulling out onto the road, we saw this police car swerving into our lane behind us. I didn’t think anything of it really. I wasn’t speeding or in any rush. As far as I knew, everything was fine. So I kept driving. That is until a few minutes later, when the police car — still trailing behind us — turned on its lights and siren.

Since we were on a busier street, I pulled into an empty parking lot, and the police car pulled in right behind us. Over a loudspeaker, the officer instructed me to get out of the car. I got out. He asked for my license and registration. I didn’t have my license on me — neither of us did. Instinctively, my sister-in-law FaceTimed Jrue and told him our situation. (At the time, I was struck by how quickly Lauren sprang into action — how she recognized the full seriousness of what was happening long before I did. Looking back, now, I see my relative lack of urgency for what it was: white privilege.) Fortunately, Jrue was at home, only like five minutes away, and so he said he’d be right there with our licenses.

We explained to the officer that my husband was coming.

A few minutes later, Jrue (with his dad) pulled into the parking lot. He immediately stepped out of his car, and calmly approached us with our licenses in hand.

I’ll never forget what happened next.

They handcuffed him.
