Perkins: I don't like Tyson Chandler

Prepare yourself for some shocking news: Kendrick Perkins does not like Tyson Chandler.

It only took a couple minutes for Perkins to scuffle with his new adversary Chandler. The two tangled in the first quarter just 70 seconds into the game, both picking up technical fouls.

Perkins has always said he preps himself mentally by thinking of reasons to hate his opponent. Evidently he hasn’t had to do much thinking with Chandler. Because Perk flat out doesn’t like him. Via ESPN Dallas:

“Me and Tyson never got along. I’m serious,” said Perkins. “He don’t like me, I don’t like him and that’s pretty much how it’s been. Everybody always looks at me as kind of like a dirty player if you’re on the opposite team, but he’s just as dirty as anybody else.”

Chandler said he has no issue with Perkins.

“I have nothing against him,” Chandler said of Perkins. “He won a championship with the Boston Celtics, and that’s where I’m trying to take my team. I mean, I’ve got respect for him, what he was able to accomplish. But all the chippy stuff, the after-the-ball stuff, that’s all nonsense and I’m not going to get involved with it.”

As Russ Bengtson tweeted, the bigger news would probably be if Perk DID like Chandler.

Perkins does need to keep it in check though. He has four technical fouls this postseason and three more and he has to serve a one-game suspension. With each game this Dallas series goes, the more chances Perk with scuffle with Chandler. Because if Perk don’t like you, he’s going to let you know about it.

Perkins: I don't like Tyson Chandler

    Danny Ainge should lose his job alng with his credibility for trading Perkins and Robinson down the stretch run.
 It simply did not have to take place.
    There is no reason for making that trade...and no reason why it had to be made THEN.

Perkins: I don't like Tyson Chandler

ihateidiots1, how's the Sonics doing? Oh I forgot, the Thunder I mean lol. STFU dude. Just because I don't share the same opinion as you don't make me an idiot, Idiot. Btw, yes I'm high, so? Man, am I glad I move out of the state of Washington so that I don't have to deal with ignorant people like you. FYI, this is the CBScommunity message board where people writes what they are thinking and not your stupid UW English 101. And the reason why you read people's idiotic comments is because you have nothing else better to do but try to impress your underage boyfriend how smart you think you are. Get a life s-hole. ihateidiots 1 is your community name? just base on that alone tells me you are n s-hole who doesn't have that many friends because of low self esteem, basically a classic loser. Have a feeling you are either unemployed or works at a fast food restaurant and definately still lives with your mommy. And I bet you blame everyone else but yourself when things don't go your way. Looooooser.

Perkins: I don't like Tyson Chandler

Quit being a cry baby Perkins, you don't like anybody, period. Ever since the Celtics trade you, you attitude towards the game and players is like crap. Perkins act like he is still piss off about the trade. Everytime he is on the floor, he is more concern and interested of giving someone a hard foul than playing the game. The only people that like him are his team mates, I think , and the fans that the team he is on, sometimes. Have you ever seen this guy smile? Perkins just don't like any players that is better than him, in this case, everyone.
