    A dual wrist and groin injury?

    The joke possibilities are endless.

      Who is “over-rating” Perkins?

      No one has ever said he was an all-star. His contract averages about $8 million a year. That’s pretty much average for an undersized center who can play a little D and grab a few rebounds and points.

      If OKC wants a premier center they need to look elsewhere – and pay a lot more.

      They might have been hoping he would develop further but they pretty much knew what they were getting when they traded for him and extended his contract.
