Perkins, the former NBA center, has had some active Twitter fingers since he was hired as an ESPN analyst in 2019. His most recent target appears to be a female Nets fan who took issue with Perkins’ criticism of Kyrie Irving.
After the Nets’ loss in Philadelphia on Wednesday night, Irving gave a blunt assessment of his team’s roster, saying “it’s pretty glaring we need one more piece or two more pieces” to complement himself and the team’s established veterans even when Kevin Durant returns next season. The notoriously temperamental Irving was criticized for the comments, especially considering that the team already invested $300 million in signing Irving, Durant and free-agent buddy DeAndre Jordan.
“Oh Kyrie Irving back at it again I see. That’s y’all man tho!!! Carry on…” Perkins tweeted.
One fan was not too happy with his take.
“HAHJAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA we know sir ur constantly running ur mouth on tv in the same spot about the same s–t we get it lmfao I’m fr dead,” tweeted the account @alissaax3.
Perkins decided to fire back – and did so in a particularly threatening way.
“Who and what army? I’m not hard to find and I’m always out and around 1 deep. Tell them to bring that s–t,” Perkins wrote in a since-deleted tweet. But the woman screenshotted it then tweeted back at Perkins, calling him out both for the comment and for deleting it.
Perkins then doubled down, replying, “Didn’t want to give you the needed attention you were searching for but I’ll say it again who and what Army? I’m always around 1 deep and I’m not hiding!!!” As of Friday morning, the new tweet has not been deleted.
