Celtics montage: ‘Thank you’ Kendrick Perkins

Posted By Ben Rohrbach On January 16, 2012 @ 8:56 pm In General | 2 Comments

In a Jumbotron montage, the Celtics [1] paid homage to former center Kendrick Perkins [2], who returned to the Garden for the first time since being traded at the deadline to the Thunder for Jeff Green [3] last February. Perkins started for the C’s during their 2008 NBA championship run, and if not for a knee injury in Game 6 of the 2010 NBA Finals [4], he may have won a second title in green. Following the tribute, in classic Perk form, he waved to the crowd in gratitude before resuming an argument with a referee about a call he took umbrage with earlier in the first half.
