    Interesting read about the dynamic. Even successful teams have unhappy guys. Also interesting that, of all people, Perkins is the guy who soothes everyone's egos. I had him pegged as someone who just beat on guys who don't get in line.

    Can't understand how in the world he can sooth, calm down or mentor anyone. The guy looks like he cries 24/7.

    Have you ever heard the guy talk? That's exactly what he is; calm, cool, collective.

    Born and raised in Beaumont, don't be talking bad bout our TX boys

    They could have used that face in the Walking Dead set if not for their "One Black Man" rule.

    Asik should give him a call to get some knowledge on how to defend Howard.

    But, I am curious who calls him about not enough touches. I am guessing: Maynor, Jackson, Ibaka, Sefalosha, Durant, Collison, Jones, Lamb, Martin, Liggins, Orton, Thabeet, and Westbrook.
