Modern era NBA players are getting called out by some of the league’s greats, such as Shaquille O’Neal, for being too sensitive to their criticism. Another area of criticism they received from some of the retired players is being too friendly with their opponents.
Former NBA champions Kendrick Perkins and Brian Scalabrine briefly talked about the issue after the Boston Celtics smashed the Houston Rockets 134-107.
At the end of the game, the players of both teams hugged which Perkins and Scalabrine thought to be wrong. While being friends, they recalled to not hugging when they were on opposing teams.
“Getting smacked by 30 and going to hug your opponent after the game ain’t it!!! I guess it’s the new generation,” Perkins tweeted.
