Perkins may not be sporting a Celtic uniform anymore, but he's still talking trash like one. It seems he's been making headlines left and right dishing out insults to Boston's rivals ever since the the trade. I guess it's like CelticsLife said after the trade, "Once a Celtic, Always a Celtic".

Earlier this month, Perkins called the Lakers' Pau Gasol 'soft and Phil Jackson 'arrogant'. Go Perk.

That wasn't all that Perkins had to say about his former team's rivals. On Sunday, Perkins gave the Miami Herald an inside look at how the Boston Celtics view the Heat.

“[The Celtics are] arrogant in a good way,” he said. “Each guy feels they have a matchup to their advantage against Miami. They take it a lot personal when they play them.”

Perk goes on to say that Ray Allen will give Dwyane Wade fits because Wade falls asleep on defense.

“Dwyane falls asleep a lot. He doesn’t like to guard screen-and-rolls, and that’s what Ray specializes in. Dwyane doesn’t like to get picked. He’s a good on-the-ball defender as far as a guy dribbling, but he struggles getting over screens.”

Perkins didn't end there. He said that Chris Bosh "definitely" won't slow down KG, and that Garnett takes it personal when he goes against Bosh.

Perk said that the Celtics players never talked about any disdain for the Heat privately, but went on to speculate, "I know it’s in their heads, how everybody crowned them before they played a game.”

    Kendrick Perkins always is looked with a Celtics jersey in my mind ... This just shows how much he cares about his old team . And it's really rare to see OKC vs. Boston in the Finals ; the Thunder are still not a complete team ... their still young and I don't think they have enough ability to go against the top veteran teams in the West when it comes to playoffs ; don't get me wrong they can surprise us just like they did to Lakers last year ... But is really rare ; as now for the Celtics ... they need to get into a rythm and win the Championship !

  3. Perks a great guy and yea 'once a celtics always a celtics'...being a former player he knows wat its like to win championship..we jus got to step it up and win te whole thing..if perk believes then we should belive..come on celtics!!!!
