Garnett says Sullinger is like Perkins… without the defense
Kevin Garnett really likes Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger. The highest praise for him might be this — on a veteran, contending team Doc Rivers is giving him nearly 19 minutes a game.
Kevin Garnett tried to pay him a better compliment — comparing him to Kendrick Perkins on the Celtics official Web site.
Perkins without the defense? Not a whole lot left there.
Perkins was efficient in his limited offensive opportunities, he played a smart game. Sullinger does that for a rookie. I get where KG was going with this.
But still, Perk without the defense, not the best compliment out there.
