Ron Artest responds to Kendrick Perkins’ comments on the Lakers.

In case you haven’t heard, here’s what Perkins had to say in the latest issue of ESPN the Magazine:

“I don’t like Pau Gasol or Phil Jackson,” Perkins said. “Phil is arrogant. Pau is soft. Kobe tries to bring out his toughness, but he’s still soft.”

Here is what Ron had to say in a recent video interview:

  • Guildtank

    yeah, and all those “soft” people have more rings than you do. Plus you are just a stray dog who isn’t wanted by his own team (Celtics). Keep barking

  • rondo

    Kendrick Perkins you don’t have no game you are a scrub. The Boston Celtics took 39 year old Shaq over your sorry big ass. Keep talking Andrew is going to punk you out again.

  • LakersFirst

    “how is that bum knee of yours Perkins, LOL. Are you upset that your career is never going to be the same with that injury? LOL. The Suckdics know, his career will now be mediocre because of that injury? LOL – It couldn’t have happend to a nicer guy HAHAHAHAHA”

  • HATER

    Perkins is a BITCH!!!!!!

  • Albert

    Whining perkins sounds worried to me and he should be cause if Drew’s healthy Perk will once again be a no show!

  • Gugy

    sour grapes Perkins? LOL

  • xtro

    it’s all about zen, y’all

  • lakerman34

    I don’t like Artest’s response to this.

    Stick up for your coach and teammates, man.

    “Yeah, he’ll be REAL soft when he dunking on you. He doesn’t wanna hurt your leg again.”

    He shoulda said something like that. Show some gamemanship, man.

    • 242LakerFan

      Um, that’s what he did. He just did it with more respect and class than Perkins did. Is that why you didn’t recognize it?
      “The zen master is in his head…it doesn’t matter what Perkins says.” Sound familiar?

    • ilkebasketball

      he responded like a man.
      he’s smart enough not to add fuel to the okc’s fire.which is what perkins(and pierce) have always done.

      artest, like a real warrior, knows he doesnt have to defend gasol or phil(they are men with rings)….he lets the balling do the talking.

      kobe woulda responded the same way…..phil wouldn’t even have responded.

      • lakerman34

        Yeah, I guess.

  • Tyler

    That Manic Depressive is still in the NBA. Last I checked they had to deport him for being so damn ugly that he sent a kid into a coma. Perkins is the soft one. He would have no need to make these comments if he was surrounded by his geriatric fags in Boston. But now he wants to take cheap shots at PJ, Pau and Kobe, then lets see how well he fares when we whoop them one more time this year.

  • 242LakerFan

    Leave the guy alone. He’s just out of his element and he’s struggling to fit in. He’s not used to being in a locker room that doesn’t smell like Ben Gay and Dentu Creme! It’s claustrophobic for him with so many teammates IN the locker room instead of on the training table or soaking in ice before and after the games.

  • SuperKobe24

    How dare you talk like you are a big superstar, even before your injury, your game is a mediocre.

  • http://lakernation MrDreLA

    All Perkins is,is a BULLY. That’s not how you play basketball. He has no stats 4pt 4rebs .5blk. All he is,is a bully

  • LA WEST44

    PERKINS HAS EEN RUNNING HIS MOUTH ABOUT HOW IF HE WASN’T INJURED FOR THE SEVENTH GAME LAST YEAR THAT THINGS WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT. WHAT HE FORGETS IS THAT BYNUM WAS NOT NEAR 100% IN THAT SERIES. A HEALTHY BYNUM WILL SHOW HIM WHO’S THE BOSS

  • C’Mon Now

    She clearly gave the part of the statement that she wanted to give. Perkins was asked whether he liked the people he plays against, and he said he finds something or anything about them not to like on the court. That’s the way you play the game, you’re not supposed to like the opposing team. They asked what does he find not to like about the Lakers, he said everything.

  • C’Mon Now

    Oh, and face it, he’s right about Phil and Pau… and no I’m not an OKC fan or Bos fan, been a Bulls fan for years, but he’s right.

  • J-Rod

    C’mon Squidword. Not Lakers fault you weren’t wanted in Beantown!
