On Kendrick Perkins’ call out of Boston Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla

Former Boston Celtics champion center and current NBA analyst and broadcaster Kendrick Perkins has never been shy about sharing his mind. And in fact, his willingness to drop scorching hot takes has helped his career in the media.

But Big Perk’s recent comments to the effect of saying that if Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla’s brain were placed in a bird, the bird would start flying backward pushed a lot of buttons, with many wondering why Perk felt the need to make his criticism so personal and insulting. Did the ESPN analyst go too far with his choice of words about the Boston coach?

The hosts of the CLNS Media “How Bout Them Celtics!” podcast took some time on a recent episode to talk about the controversy kicked up by the 2008 titlist.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say about Perk making his Mazzulla critique such a blunt instrument.
