Former NBA player Kendrick Perkins openly criticized Kyrie Irving for his time with the Boston Celtics because, according to Perk, Irving ‘didn’t want to play’ for the Celtics.
Perkins, NBA champion in 2008 with the Celtics, went as far as to say that he ‘wants to throw up’ every tie he thinks of Irving.

Now a Brookly Net, Irving averaged 24.4 and 23.8 points per game in his two seasons with the Celtics respectively. He also made it to the All-Star Game both times.
