When Blake Griffin dunked on Kendrick Perkins last we with, it nearly broke Twitter. But not before LeBron was able to tweet about it. Following the dunk, LeBron tweeted:
“Dunk of the Year! @blakegriffin just dunked on Kendrick Perkins so hard!!! Wow! I guess I’m No. 2 now. Move over #6.”
Apparently, LeBron was talking about his dunk over John Lucas a few days prior. That didn’t sit well with Perk.
“You don’t see Kobe [Bryant] tweeting, you don’t see Michael Jordan tweeting. If you’re an elite player, plays like that don’t excite you.
“At the end of the day, the guys who are playing for the right reasons who are trying to win championships are not worrying about one play.”
“They also are not tweeting about themselves talking about going down to No. 2. I just feel [James] is always looking for attention and he wants the world to like him.”
To which LeBron replied:
“Did I call him out? I mean, did you read the tweet? Did I call him out? I can see why he felt embarrassed. I don’t think I was the only one to react to the unbelievable play by Blake and that’s what it was all about.”
“You could be watching cartoons with your kids and you don’t like it, you say, ‘Blame it on LeBron.’ If you go to the grocery store and they don’t have the milk that you like, you just say, ‘It’s LeBron’s fault.’ “
Perk needs to man up and realize that many players tweeted about that dunk, not just LeBron.
