In the newest issue of ESPN the Mag , Perkins and Kevin Durant were both asked a couple of the same questions with both having mostly differing opinions. All of it was pretty interesting, but the question, “Lakers: Team to beat or old news?” brought out the best in Perk.

“Yesterday’s news,” he said. “I don’t like Pau Gasol or Phil Jackson. Phil is arrogant. Pau is soft. Kobe tries to bring out his toughness, but he’s still soft.”

Can't wait to see the Thunder vs Lakers in the WCF ;)

In other News, Perkins was probably injured while giving this interview.

also, Phil Jackson is one of the greatest coaches so hes earned the right to be arrogant

Seriously though, he's not......that........good.

He called Kobe soft... OOOOOOK.

No, he called Gasol soft, and said kobe tries to toughen him up. He is just speaking truth though Gasol is soft, but he'd still rape Perkins. Phil is arrogant, but that's what 11 championships do to you. . :p

He's right. And being injured doesn't necessarily make you soft.

it makes him more frail, which is another word for soft.

and if your not injured as much it must mean your more durable, which is tougher then frail thats for sure.

and who is this perkins guy ? calling out an 11 time champion coach and an all star caliber player who is a defending champ ?


ok 1 .. get healthy perk.. 2 see is things pan out for you in okc. 3 you have to earn your stripes before calling out hall of famers.

perk your 1-2 injuries away from being greg oden versian 2.0 so lock off your mouth son.

i smell a little jealousy. i mean really, u dnt like a guy bcuz hes too soft? lmao. but is a top 15 player? and has more rings then u do. hahaha.

i bet he would love to play for the lakers, he just being a grouch as usual. he must of forgot hes in a thunder jersey, that mean guy persona can stop now

He's right.phil is arrogant.he always tries to stir ish up talking about other players.he wins yes, but what happens when his teams lose. He bolts.

He does win though once again (for yall lakers fans who only read the last sentence)

Anyway idk if pau is "soft" but he screams like a b**** for everything and flops around alot so perk may have a point.

anyway.hope these two meet in playoffs.

He isn't Larry Brown.


Last I checked he stuck right there in the trenches with a "Big 3" of Bryant, Odom, and Walton. They gave them no other talent besides a fat kid in Bynum and he stuck it out. In fact he coached won of the youngest teams to the Finals and then won with one of the youngest Finals teams ever. He developed Ariza, Farmar, Bynum, Brown, Vujacic, Turiaf, Walton, and to a lesser degree even Kobe and Fisher into full time starters

Pau is a Hall of Famer since it is the BASKETBALL Hall of Fame.

He has a resume' for it
- 2 NBA rings
- Rookie of the Year
- 4 time all star
- FIBA MVP
- Eurobasket MVP
- Spanish King's Cup MVP
- Spanish Final's MVP
- 7 other MVP awards in Europe
- 4 gold medals, 3 silver medals, and 2 bronze medals


The selection committee takes into account overseas play and as it stands the only foreign player with a chance of being seen as more decorated is Manu because of an extra NBA ring

True about larry brown.

That's just what I think when I think of lakers being mediocre a few years back between their championship runs.

I just think some coachesARE BETTER, they just didn't have kobe, shaq, mj, etc..

In my opinion Phil Jackson can say basically what ever he wants. I may not agree with some things or even like them. But as the greatest(and luckiest) coach of all time when he speaks people listen. Sure he's had some of the best teams of all time. But to put all those egos aside and play winning team basketball, he deserves even more credit. You can give me The same teams and I'd just stand there and say work on your eFG%!

and getting stabbed up doesnt make you tough. it makes you a patient in the emergency room. with that being said. i like paul pierce, my point was dont stick up for perkins just cuz your a celtic fan. he cant call out hall of fame coaches and championship caliber players.

if bynam was shooting off at the mouth about ray allen, kevin garnet and doc rivers, i would have the same exact reaction. i just think its a punk move on perkins part .. and i like boston 10 x more now that he isnt in a celtic uniform.

He is not one of the greatest coaches. He was given ungodly amount of talent and won rings. He is good dealing with a lot of egos though, I will give him that much. He is so arrogant because he got the chance to coach 2 of the best players of my generation.

I'm sorry, when did bob sanders start playing basketball? football is a totally different sport and obviously you cant be soft if you play in the NFL.

Right, while it may be a different sport, you still need to be tough in basketball. Bob Sanders is oft-injured.. so by your logic, he is soft.

Not sure where you get the whole "he's soft because he get's injured" thing because getting injured is not related to how tough you are in any way, shape, or form. Perk could still kick your *** without having two legs.

He needs to be more concerned with why he has the knees of an 80 year old man.......

If Perk played in the final game I bet the rebounding #'s wouldn't have been so lopsided. How does Perk have the knees of an 80 year old? Maybe since you're mentioning Bynum we should talk about his knees.

Pau's playing style doesn't make him soft, pounding the paint isn't his game or his role on the team. Pau is exactly what the lakers need him to be, most of the people who call him soft just parrot what they heard from other players, hes not a true center and he's shown a lot of toughness stepping up in that role because of Bynums injury problems. Of course people with more muscle on their frame can overpower him, but he's a power forward playing center and he's still a damn good center.

Perkins may go hard to the rim and go after boards but if you're made of glass you got no place talking **** on someone elses game.

If pau is soft Perkins is brittle. One bends one breaks, which would you rather have on your team?

If Perk played in the final game I bet the rebounding #'s wouldn't have been so lopsided. How does Perk have the knees of an 80 year old? Maybe since you're mentioning Bynum we should talk about his knees.

I hate this argument because people negate what Rasheed Wallace gave them in game 7. The guy played his heart out gave them more offense with the same defensive output in that game. People should realize that Perkins was far from a rebounding machine in he series against LA, in fact, there were games where the Lakers still owned them on the glass when Perkins was playing.

Pau is a Hall of Famer since it is the BASKETBALL Hall of Fame.

He has a resume' for it
- 2 NBA rings
- Rookie of the Year
- 4 time all star
- FIBA MVP
- Eurobasket MVP
- Spanish King's Cup MVP
- Spanish Final's MVP
- 7 other MVP awards in Europe
- 4 gold medals, 3 silver medals, and 2 bronze medals


The selection committee takes into account overseas play and as it stands the only foreign player with a chance of being seen as more decorated is Manu because of an extra NBA ring

i didnt realize he had accomplished all of this. before i saw this post, i was in the boat of people saying that he wasnt a HOF'er. however, those awards should easily make him a HOF player (and i hate the lakers and gasol with a passion, but i can admit when a player is good unlike most people on this forum).

Every player and coach in the NBA calls Perkins "most overrated."

Seriously though, he's not......that........good.

He's probably the best defensive big man in the league. He's the guy that they look at and say "go guard Dwight, or go guard Bynum", and he can do it. I wouldn't call that overrated. Now that we've got Perkins, Serge Ibaka is gonna be a straight up beast covering guys one on one. This will be the frontcourt tandem that can legitimately give Bynum/Gasol a run for their money.

Of course Phil is arrogant..but why shouldn't he be? His resume speaks for itself. That doesn't mean I'm going to hate for it. Was Jordan arrogant? Kobe? Hell...Muhammed Ali was the most arrogant man i've ever seen. But they all have one thing in common: championships.

And no offense, but a major reason Boston traded Perkins was because he was going to ask for more money...so lets not pretend there isn't a little arrogance in him as well.

And Gasol certainly isn't a tough guy..but he's not built that way. He's a finesse player. We got Kobe, Fisher, Artest, and Matt Barnes on this team...we don't need another tough guy.

He played through games 1-6 and Gasol completely murdered him on the boards. Speaking of Bynum a hurt Bynum playing on one leg was still able to neutralize him. What does that tell you? He's just bitter because Gasol is widely recognized as the most skilled big man in the game and he's fresh off a trade because Boston saw he was expendable.....

Fishers the same. The guy almost never misses a game, even when Kwame Brown tries to destroy his elbow lol. On top of that, he's excellent at taking charges, and right up in anybodys face on defense.

Apparently Blair had surgery on his knees before he came to the league and his body somehow broke down his ACL and absorbed them with something pertaining to scar tissues.

Some of the biggest Kobe haters in the world give him credit for being a tough SOB, lay off the crack pipe dude

That's cos a 4 year old don't know ****.

He's far from tough. I clearly am not a "fan" but I'll acknowledge him as the best player in the league. But again, you're on his nuts, so you're going to defend him no matter what, but Kobe ****in' Bryant is not a tough guy. A great player? Yes. Tough? That's a ****in' joke. Besides, have you ever heard him talk. He's grown up some but man he can be a little *****. Total flaming ******.

I'm not trying to goad, just goddamn, Kobe is not tough!!!!!! :facepalm:

He's right. And being injured doesn't necessarily make you soft.
Ok so Perk is not soft, he's just Fragile
