Kendrick Perkins and Kevin Durant were once teammates in Oklahoma City, playing on the Thunder together, and it was said that the two have remained in contact as friends since.
Well, it appears that’s not the case anymore, or at least that’s not what they’re looking to convey to the public.
Russell Westbrook returned to Oklahoma City for the first time since being traded to the Rockets over the summer, and that’s when Perkins began ruffling some feathers by saying he believes the All-Star guard is the best player to have ever played for the Thunder.
That, as you can imagine, did not go over well with Durant, who also played for the organization, and went on to be named NBA Finals MVP — twice. KD zinged Perkins soon after seeing the tweet.
KP fired right back.
And then it kept going.
Welp, it doesn’t appear as if the two will be swapping Christmas cards any longer.
