You got to give Kendrick Perkins some credit for being a good sport with this one.
On Thursday morning, the "officialwarriorsworld" Instagram account posted the following:

Warriors World is proud to donate 100% of our online store proceeds during the month of May, in an effort to provide our local hospital workers & front line staff with our new Covid-19 masks. Thanks again for your service and stay safe. 🙏🏽
Perkins -- who is viewed as an antagonist to many Warriors fans because of his "interesting" opinions about the team and its players -- had some fun with it.
He posted the picture to his IG account with the caption: "Why @officialwarriorsworld and the GS fans do old Perk like that?! I'll Dm them my Cash app later."
Perkins also took to Twitter:
Why the the Warriors Fans had to Big Perk like that?! 🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/bdhZEr0d5w— Kendrick Perkins (@KendrickPerkins) May 28, 2020
If you aren't familiar with the background -- this is what happened at the end of the third quarter in Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals between the Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers:

Steph Curry apparently talked some trash to Perk by saying: "You ain't playin' tonight?"
In the end, Perkins playing along with the trolling hopefully raises more money in the fight against COVID-19.
