The stat-padding narrative it’s lazy” Draymond Green rips Kendrick Perkins over NBA MVP racial bias allegations

Since leaving the NBA in 2018, Kendrick Perkins has worked as a sports analyst, proving that he is not just a talented player but also a skilled communicator of both on- and off-field news. But recently, this legendary athlete has become the focus of controversy due to a statement he made regarding.

The top player, Jokic of the Denver Nuggets, is in line to win the NBA’s Most Valuable Player title for the third consecutive season while averaging 24.6 points, 11.9 rebounds, 10 assists, and a mind-boggling 63% field goal percentage, became the subject of this Perkins’ statement.

What were the utterly awful remarks of Perkins?

Recently, Kendrick stirred a conversation by challenging the skills of two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Nikola by inflating his stats. This revelation left the NBA world in a state of shock.

“When it comes down to guys winning MVP since 1990, it’s only three guys that won the MVP that wasn’t top-10 in scoring; do you know who those three guys were? Steve Nash, Jokic and Dirk Nowitzki. Now, what do those guys have in common? I’ll let it sit there and marinate, and you think about it.” Perkins stated on ESPN’s First Take.

It is quite transparent that what Perkins was trying to convey was that the fact that Nash, Jokic, and Nowitzki all have white skin color is the reason why they were all voted MVP. This is an extremely ludicrous notion.

What was Green’s gritty reply to Kendrick Perkins’ statement?

In a recent podcast, Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors refuted Perkins’ assertion that his remarks on stat padding were unfounded. Draymond Green doesn’t get into the myth that Nikola Jokic inflates his stats since he is a phenomenal talent and earns triple-doubles as a result of how effectively he engages his teammates.

This quarterback claims that Perkins probably doesn’t watch the games because it is obvious that Nikola is not only leading the MVP race but also steering the Nuggets to the top seed in the highly competitive Western Conference.

What is the alleged Nikola’s response to this debate?

Nikola, who is currently the focus of numerous remarks, stokes the flames by claiming that he enjoys listening to such claims.

“I just find it interesting to say something just to … give those guys something to talk about.”

It is comforting to see that Jokic is not taking Perkins’ harsh comments too seriously and is instead concentrating much of his attention on proving his worth.
