We’re not saying it’s not funny. Au contraire, it’s pretty funny. But come on man, let the man have some time after getting married before he has to see these memes!
Of course, like us, multiple fans found the joke to be in slightly poor taste. And it seems Kendrick Perkins feels the same way as well.
Let’s get into it.

For what we’ve heard from him so far, this is definitely a step in the right direction. After all, calling Giannis ‘Robin’ isn’t exactly a move that covers you in glory.
As for the page though, the joke was absolutely funny. But, at the same time, we as a basketball community should perhaps stick to basketball when it comes to these matters. This is a big moment in Damian Lillard’s life. Let’s make sure he isn’t being forced to worry about something else during such a special time.
