Lakers superstar LeBron James is the most talked-about player in the basketball world. The king of basketball has been heavily criticized for encouraging players to join his teams. Well, the Los Angeles Clippers did that this season and triggered an avalanche of reactions. Former NBA big man and ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins was the first to step in defense of LeBron.
Perkins took to his Twitter account to call out those who criticize LeBron and step back when it comes to criticizing the Clippers. He can’t really cope with the idea that the Clippers are packing their team and no one says a thing. It’s funny how LeBron received a different treatment. Some even question his skills and say that Michael Jordan is the greatest of all time. We won’t even get into the GOAT debate. For now.

these people say a word about the Clippers and their recent additions?
Perkins is a 14-year NBA veteran, and he is well aware of the criticism LeBron has faced throughout his career. They shared the floor in Cleveland in two separate seasons, 2014-15 and in 2017-18.
don’t need an addition at the moment. They work really well on the court.
LeBron and Anthony Davis have the perfect chemistry, and the rest of the
players only add to this bond. The Lakers are ready to win a title this season.
