Kendrick Perkins, nominally on the Cavs roster, is just there to wear a suit and start shit. He’s a large, rude chaperone who escorts the team from Cleveland to the Bay and back, occasionally stepping up to yell at or near Drake or knock knees with Steph Curry. Last night he fully embraced his role during his old OKC pal Kevin Durant’s postgame presser.

Here’s how The Athletic’s Jason Lloyd described Perkins’s gesture from the back of the room:

On his way out of the arena, Kendrick Perkins stopped in the hallway and stuck his head in the interview room to see who was at the podium. When he saw it was Kevin Durant, Perk saluted him — with two middle fingers raised high over his massive frame. Without saying a word, he turned away and continued heading for the exit.

As Dime noticed, Durant, on camera, offered a silent reply:

“Fuck you, bitch-ass,” is of course how these two express affection.

At this point it couldn’t really hurt to give Perk some burn in Game 4. Just see what happens.
