Ya know, I used to really want this guy, but it's clear tht he has serious issues. He couldn't get along with his last two coaches, he's been suspended a few times, collangelo famously called him immature this summer, and he's got a track-record of bad attitude ad selfish play going back to college. Add in the fact that he hasn't relly improved much since he joined the NBA, and I don't know how any center shoots under .500. This guy scares me. Huge risk reward, but the kid boarders on toxic. If he was coach able I'd feel differently, but why repeat sac-town's mistake. Not worth it.

Look again. Scroll all the way down. It's all there. Every matchup of Howard vs. Perkins, regular season and playoffs.

2010 Playoffs? Lol oh man. You mean the series where Dwight Howard went 13 and 12 in game 1? Then Perkins somehow managed to almost foul out in 20ish minutes guarding Dwight in a blowout game 2, and so Perkins was advertised as a "Dwight stopper" from that point on? Yeah about that...Dwight proceeded to clown Perkins for 32/16, 21/10, and 28/12 in successive games in that series, but the dumbass kneejerk world of collective RealGM basketball opinion forgot to update the book on Perkins. It's like none of that happened. Perkins has still been dining out on that one game ever since lol. If numbers like 32/16 or 28/12 is Dwight Howard being "shut down" by Kendrick Perkins in the playoffs, then we need to reexamine Dwight Howard as a player, because he must somehow be like 3 Kareems combined. Two of them standing on top of a third to make some sort of human Kareem pyramid, I imagine. That or--hmm...far more likely--Dwight was just doing the same thing to Perkins that he was doing to everybody else in 2010, and it's like Perkins wasn't even there.

It's like this: Name a credible low post F/C and I can link you to a fistful of games of that guy lighting the great Kendrick Perkins right the hell up. Basically the notion that Kendrick Perkins is a "good low post defender" is one of the biggest popular misconceptions going right now. It's gotten to where I don't even care that this scowling monstrosity of an overrated nothing is from Texas any longer. Time to just cut the BS here. Perk is garbage my friend.

lol game 3 was the blowout game where Orlando didn't try. I somehow actually left out mentioning a whole other playoff game in that series where Dwight torched Perkins for 30, in addition to 32, 28, and so on. Ahahaha this just keeps getting better and better! See for yourself.



Pictured: Kendrick Perkins shows off the "defensive skills" (read: frowning at people while they dunk on you) that would get him paid 20 million dollars over the next two seasons.

Nobody ever talks about the defense Dwight Howard played on Perkins in that series, either. I get it, Dwight Howard could guard Perkins with one arm blindfolded, but gaze upon that offensive firepower by Sir Scowlsalot: 4 points...3 points...2 points...2 points. That is some pitiful crap right there, from a starting center in the playoffs. It's like, if the guy you're guarding usually averages 18 PPG and is demolishing you for 30 a night in the playoffs of all places, and then you yourself are putting up 2 points, then why are you on the basketball court. Why do you even exist, Kendrick Perkins??

But whatever. I've said my piece. The guy sucks. Period the end.

I think the best fits for him would be either Boston or Dallas. He needs to go to a team with veterans that can keep him in check. I really would love to see him on Boston though. Him and Rondo together would be killer.

Oh I never said Sacramento would do the deal!

I was speaking to the fact that Washington would CERTAINLY trade Beal for Cousins if offered (and if they wanted the headcase).


Beal's numbers probably aren't a massive concern for GMs at the moment. He's a rookie on an absolutely terrible team which has no PG to create anything for him. So despite his numbers, he probably still has value because he was highly drafted, but if his numbers continue into next season, that value will drop off the edge of a cliff.
Funny thing "potential" - often it is just a substitute word for "this guy is crap but I have a hunch he might not be"....

There is no better fit for Cousins right now than the Rockets. The youngest team in the league and they already look to have things together.
OKC would be another good fit.

Lamarcus Aldridge is starting to grow on me. I don't think Sacto will ever trade Cousins and he can't stretch the floor anyway, so If L.A can stay healthy Morey can wait til the off season and we can keep P.Pat to come off the bench. We'd still have to make some trades to clear the roster glut (Donuts, Morris, Royce) but how awesome would it be to have

PG: Lin
SG: Harden
SF: Parsons
PF: Aldridge
C: Asik

When you WATCH the Thunder play teams with legit bigs, do you see them allow Perkins to check dudes with less help more often than not or more often than most other teams do? Compare that to us pre Asik, and you will notice the difference. Guys will still get their numbers unless someone is a lock down defender (never said Perkins was), but it's about making them work for theirs without having to constantly send help their way. Using your logic I guess Battier wasn't a good defender either?

There aren't that many bigs in the league that can defend the low post without tons of help. Perkins is one of them and I don't see OKC trading him as they know the bigs they will see in the playoffs. Maybe if Ibaka develops into a better man defender but he's not there yet. It was night and day last postseason when he had to check dudes 1-1 in the post (great help defender though).*

I think the front office over there already went on record today saying that they would not deal Cousins.

Even if Geoff wants to trade Cousins, and at this point I reckon he is begging to, the Maloofs will just veto it.

Rockets: Marcus Morris and Greg Smith
(24.0 WARP)



Even after dealing for James Harden, the Rockets could still put together a competitive offer for Cousins thanks to their frontcourt depth. Sacramento could probably take its pick of any two bigs on the Houston roster besides starting center Omer Asik. Statistically, the best duo would be Morris and Smith. In his second season, Morris has blossomed after moving to power forward, stretching the floor from the position by making nearly 40 percent of his 3-point attempts. The Kings could eventually give him another try on the wing if former college teammate Thomas Robinson emerges as a starter at the 4. The undrafted Smith, plucked by the Rockets from the D-League, is locked up for the minimum through 2013-14. He has impressed off the bench this season, using his strength and soft touch around the basket to make up for being undersized. Smith's 65.7 percent 2-point shooting ranks third among regular players, and he's also capable on the glass.
