It's true though, what he said... which was what I was saying.
In spite? Why would they start a bad player? Dude's career high is like 10 points and 8 rebounds; he's not a numbers guy. You can't look at something and say "This is not a factor." Since OKC got Perkins, they have been dominating. You can say "In spite" but the truth is the truth.
They also say he was "alongside a great defensive player." Isn't Ibaka a talented defender? Shit hasn't changed that much. Perkins is a solid starter who knows what to do. He's starting on the best team in the NBA.
The only downside with Perk is if a team has a small lineup then he can't compete because he's not good enough to post up.
Anyone who thinks OKC would be better off with Collison starting doesn't understand bball.
