The Background

Kendrick Perkins, a former NBA player, appeared on the Michael Kay Show to discuss the Knicks’ playoff prospects. During the conversation, he took a jab at Barkley and Shaq, suggesting that they only watch NBA games when their network broadcasts them. Perkins claimed that the duo rarely watches basketball consistently and only tunes in for Knicks games on their designated nights.

Barkley and Shaq wasted no time in responding. They used the news of Blake Griffin’s retirement to showcase one of Griffin’s iconic dunks—on none other than Kendrick Perkins. The video clip left no room for doubt: Perkins had been dunked on, and the TNT hosts were ready to defend their basketball acumen.

Shaq chimed in, saying, “We don’t watch Knicks games…but I watched that game.” Barkley’s retort was equally scathing: “I ain’t gonna even give no love to no guy that averaged five points a game. Five points a game gonna call me out?” The reference to Perkins’ modest scoring average added insult to injury.
