Kendrick Perkins claims First Take ‘hearing from my lawyer’



FIRST TAKE guest Kendrick Perkins brought his receipts to the show on Monday and was ready to check them.

The former NBA big man couldn’t wait to call out Stephen A Smith for “questioning his character” after he suggested the Miami Heat would win Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Kendrick Perkins said on Friday the Miami Heat would win Game 2

Last Friday, Perkins expressed he felt the Heat would come back to win the series despite getting easily handled by the Denver Nuggets in Game 1.

Molly Qerim, former NBA star J.J Redick joined Perkins and Smith to discuss Miami’s victory. 

The Heat took Game 2 in Denver 111-108, and Perkins was fired up and took a shot at Stephen A.


“Yall should be actually hearing my lawyer because Stephen A questioned my character. With no evidence.”

“He called me a liar to the American People. “

Perkins continued voicing that he still is picking the Heat to win the series while mocking Smith and Redick.

“I tried to educate JJ Redick and Stephen A why I was picking, and Heat and why I had confidence, and they were looking at me like I was crazy.”

Redick responded and congratulated Perkins and told him, “take your victory lap.” 

Redick agreed with Perkins that Miami needed to play Kevin Love more, and that adjustment was a huge key to Miami’s Game 2 win. 

However, Redick believes Denver will still find a way to win the series. 


Stephen A praised Perkins but emphasized that if the Heat have any chance to win this series, they must continue to make 3-point shots.
