Kendrick Perkins Roasted For Implying Nikola Jokic, Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash Won MVPs Because They’re White

Kendrick Perkins

Kendrick Perkins might’ve lost his damn mind, implying on First Take that Nikola Jokic, Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki won MVP awards because they are white.

We’ve been building to this moment for a while, with the whole thing starting earlier this week when Perkins offered the freezing cold take that Jokic was stat padding.

This attracted a range of responses, including one from Jokic himself:

It also sparked a heated debate between Perkins and his ESPN colleague JJ Redick.

As the debate raged on today, Perkins took things to the next level by implying that Jokic, Nash and Nowitzki only won MVP awards because of their skin colour.

“When it comes down to guys winning MVPs since 1990, it’s only three guys that won the MVP that wasn’t Top-10 in scoring. Do you know who those three guys were? Steve Nash, Jokic, and Dirk Nowitzki. What do those guys have in common? I’ll let it sit there and marinate, you think about it.”

Perkins then doubled down on his take with a seperate video posted to Twitter, which he then quickly deleted.

Someone stop this man before he digs himself an even deeper hole.
