Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins took exception to Lebron James' comments about Blake Griffin's dunk over him.
After the powerful dunk, James tweeted out that it was the dunk of the year and Perkins wasn't too happy about it.
You don't see Kobe tweeting, Perkins said. You don't see Michael Jordan tweeting. If you're an elite player, plays like that don't excite you. At the end of the day, the guys who are playing for the right reasons who are trying to win championships are not worrying about one play. They also are not tweeting about themselves talking about going down to No. 2. I just feel (James) is always looking for attention and he wants the world to like him.
The comments were the first that Perkins has made since immediately after the game. The dunk was superb, but some of the hoopla around it was a bit much. Still, Perkins taking time to single out James' innocuous tweet seems to reek of sour grapes.
