Retired NBA big man-turned-ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins joins Keyshawn Johnson, Jay Williams and Zubin Mehenti to react to the Los Angeles Clippers and Doc Rivers parting ways, with Perkins saying the Clippers stars Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams deserve blame for the team’s exit vs. the Denver Nuggets.
