Kendrick Perkins wants to talk hood, but he’s afraid he might lose his job.
After the Boston Celtics’ playoff loss to the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 5, Perkins took to Twitter to talk about one request he had for his employer.
Following Boston’s disappointing playoff loss to fall to 3-2 against the Sixers, Big Perk said he wishes ESPN would the “hood” version of himself on-air.
“If I had one wish, it would be for me to be able to the hood version of Perk on ESPN because if I could say what I truly want to say about these Celtics I’d get fired on my day off!” Perkins exclaimed.
