Kendrick Perkins slams LA Clippers star Paul George after yet another abysmal performance against Murray-less Nuggets.
Paul George for the most part has played very well this season. The 31-year-old is averaging a respectable 23.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 5.3 assists. Overall, since the bubble last year, the man looks rejuvenated and ready to go off on any given night and lead the Clippers to victory.
However, last night just wasn’t his day it seems. On the eve of his birthday, PG found himself on the losing side of a game against the Denver Nuggets. The game ended with a score of 110-104. And the superstar quite simply had a terrible night.
Noticing this, many in the NBA community have sent backlash in the direction of George. And it seems ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins chose to join in after the game.
“Paul George talking about MFs go pay!”: Kendrick Perkins roasts Paul George
Kendrick Perkins doesn’t really need an introduction to the NBA community. The former NBA player only recently transitioned into analysis of the game. Right now, Perk stands as one of the more entertaining analysts on television, with his passionate but humorous hot takes catching the attention of many.
But Big Perk can be mean too. And he reminded everyone that recently, commenting pretty harshly on Paul George, on Twitter.
Paul George talking about MFs go pay! Here it is tonight on a Prime Time game against a team that knocked them out of the playoffs last season he goes 5/21 from the field while Jokic with no Murray gave them that work…finishing with 30-14-7 with the W!!! Carry the hell on…

Paul George had just 20 points in this game, going 5-21 from the field, and just 3-8 from three. It wasn’t just PG though, his co-star in Kawhi Leonard didn’t do any better.
The 2-time NBA champ scored just 16 points in the game. On the other hand, as Perk mentioned, the Joker had an incredible 30 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists during this game. This performance will add a serious boost to his MVP campaign.
The Clippers are currently in a 3-game losing streak. And while losses against the Suns and the Pelicans were still reasonable, losing against the Nuggets without Murray is a bit concerning.
Still, it would be harsh to count the LA Clippers out after a short streak such as this. Only time will tell if the franchise will be good enough to seriously challenge for the NBA championship come playoff time.
