Kendrick Perkins hasn’t shied away from expressing his disdain for ex-Celtic Kyrie Irving.
The latest instance was on Tuesday night’s Celtics-Rockets matchup with Perkins sitting in as an analyst on the NBC Sports Boston broadcast. Perkins was impressed with the turnout of C’s fans in Houston and ripped Irving for not embracing his days in Boston.
“When I was playing for the Celtics I never really focused on the crowd or the fans. I was so locked in,” he said. “Now that I’m an analyst, I’m retired, it’s amazing how many Celtics fans there are around the world.
“Do you hear these chants right now? Let’s go Celtics. And Kyrie Irving didn’t want to play here. Every time I think of that guy, I want to throw up.”
