How many games will Perkins last before picking up that 1 technical foul and being suspended for a game in the finals?

He won't

I don't think he will either. A technical is way different then a personal foul. He knows he needs to watch his attitude or he misses a full game. He will commit fouls, but nothing will come out of them.

He's screwed if he gets one, but the refs know that he's one away from a suspension.

He has the reputation, but the refs aren't going to give him a borderline tech knowing that he'll be out a game.

I think it is going to take some edge off his game and the Lakers can and should be super aggresive with him.

I bet he gets one about 2-3 games into the series that is borderline, like a silly double tech, than it gets reviewed that night and overturned, so he gets no suspension.

So, my vote is he gets one in maybe the 3rd game, but does not end up getting suspended.

I think he gets one in game 3... this is going to be a very physical series with a lot of bad blood in it.

He might as well get it out of the way in game 1.

I say two games. The way the refs have been calling these playoffs, he really doesn't even have to do anything. If a Laker bumps into Perk and Perk looks at him, it's gonna be a double tech.

KG and Sheed each have 4. Rondo and Kobe have 3.


And I don't think he'll get it. He'll play smarter, and the refs will deservedly give him some leeway.

I don't think the refs like him, they think he is a ******.

Here's a question... I also believe he will get a borderline tech, that will be rescinded (as it should probably be at this point)

but...

what if the tech he gets is so obvious...... will the league rescind it to make him not be suspended?

If the Celtics are are up in the series then he will get one. If they are down in the series he won't. It is as simple as that.

Either the refs will be TOO reserved in calling any techs on him, because of the suspension, or the tech will be rescinded by the NBA -- especially if it's one of those double tech deals.

Perk gets quite a bit of criticism thrown his way, but I like guys who play with emotion. That said, it's a good thing that the Lakers don't have a Dennis Rodman type on their squad now. For all of his shenanigans, Rodman was brilliant at getting under another player's skin. Perk would be an easy mark.

^^ Sasha is nowhere near Rodman but he does get under everyone's skin. :p

If it's legit, they won't rescind it. If they did, it would just ruin their policy.

But either way, he's only going to miss a game if he really deserves to miss one.

I'm gonna say Game 2. He'll be calm for Game 1 and bite his tongue but in the 3rd of Game 2 he'll be fed up with the bullshizz and start mouthing off. That's when he gets T'd up and suspended for Game 3.

I hope he doesn't so Boston has no excuses.
