Kendrick Perkins Vs. Chris Webber: A Twitter War Of Words

Chris Webber doesn't care much for Kendrick Perkins -- at least on the court for the Oklahoma City Thunder. The former NBA All-Star is now an announcer/analyst for NBA TV and Webber has taken exception to Perkins' on-court fit for the team in the past before doing so again last night during the Grizzlies-Thunder game, specifically mentioning that Perkins is a poor defender one-on-one. Apparently Perkins is ready for Webber to keep his opinions to himself.

Perkins took to his Twitter account to speak about Webber's criticisms. He posted, "and im tired of chris webber hatin on me get a ring first and then i can respect ya comments other wise keep my name out of ya mouth". Webber has yet to make an official comment via his own Twitter account, but that's likely to not happen as any level of professionalism in the NBA would be to simply stay quiet about it.
