Kevin Durant-Kendrick Perkins beef continues with Kyrie Irving comments


The feud between former Warriors superstar Kevin Durant and Kendrick Perkins clearly still exists.

This time, it isn't about KD leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder for Golden State in July 2016. Instead, it's because of comments directed at Kyrie Irving.

"If you take Kyrie Irving's brain and put it in a bird right now, guess what that bird is gonna do? It's gonna fly backwards," Perkins said Wednesday morning on ESPN's "Get Up" show. "Kyrie, right now, is confused. He's showing his lack of leadership."

When the Instagram account "thescore" posted a different quote from Perkins, Durant responded by saying: "Sell out."

And then KD trolled Perkins by retweeting the video "DrGuru23" posted:

The beef between the two started on Twitter in early January when Perkins made a strong declaration.

It all escalated from there.

"I probably should have just took the blow that he delivered and just sent him a text and was like, 'Bro, I wasn't coming at you like that,' and just let it be gone," Perkins said on NBC Sports Bay Area's "Runnin' Plays" podcast in late April. "Instead of for me, saying, 'You know what? I'm about to attack you and hit you where it hurt.' And I did shoot some below-the-belt slugs that I wish I wouldn't have done.

"That's why I made my apology public."

Check back soon because surely there will be another layer to this Kyrie-related development in the coming days.
