Jalen Rose lambastes colleague Kendrick Perkins over his appalling takes on the Milwaukee Bucks during the 2021 NBA Finals.
The Milwaukee Bucks created history as they won their 2nd championship in franchise history. Giannis Antentokounmpo was crowned Finals MVP for his phenomenal performances during the Finals.
However, during the Finals, former NBA player and now ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins had heavily criticized the Greek Freak and the Bucks. The former Celtics player even went on to call the Milwaukee Bucks the dumbest team in NBA Finals history.
“The Milwaukee Bucks has the dumbest team in Finals history!”

Big Perk was very critical of Giannis during the 2021 playoffs. The ESPN analyst even stated that Giannis was Robin and Khris Middleton was the batman during the Bucks’ series against the Milwaukee Bucks.
“What Giannis proved to me last night, is that he’s a certified Robin. … Khris Middleton is the Batman of that team!”@KendrickPerkins is still waiting on the former DPOY “to answer the call” 😳 pic.twitter.com/RfTiFz1JYk

However, Giannis would silence all his critics during the NBA Finals, winning the Finals MVP. The 2x MVP and former DPOY had 3 games with at least 40 points during the Finals, joining the ranks of Michael Jordan and Shaquille O’ Neal.
Thus when Rose and Perkins got onto a debate, the former was seen throwing some shots at Perkins for his poor judgment and analysis of the Finals.
Jalen Rose and Kendrick Perkins engage in a heated debate
While talking about the 2021 NBA champions Milwaukee Bucks, Jalen Rose engaged in some heavy slander with co-panelist Kendrick Perkins.
Rose had some harsh words for the former NBA champion, who was seen heavily criticizing the Milwaukee Bucks during this years playoffs.
Rose was quoted saying, “Young folks like this (Kendrick Perkins) who have been doing this job like since 5-years. They get one or two things right. They get one or two catchphrases and come here with their 80s pastor suits and think all of their takes are going to be hot.” said Rose.
The former most improved player of the year reminded Perkins about all his statements regarding Giannis and co. Right from calling Bucks one of the dumbest teams to play in the Finals to addressing Giannis as Robin and Middleton as Batman.
Rose was seen roasting Perkins during the show for his takes on the Bucks. There was a hilarious segment during the show that had Rose made fun of Perkins outfits calling them pastor suits, to which Perkins responded by making fun of his dyed hair.
Rose defended himself by saying, “I’m only 10 years older than you, but you look 50 years older than me.”
Things did get murkier between the two, with Perkins taking to Twitter to express his disappointment. Rose responded to him on the tweet.
