Earlier this season, Kendrick Perkins discredited the Kings' fast start with some foul language.
The Thunder play the Kings again Tuesday in Sacramento and Rudy Gay shared his thoughts on Perkins with us leading into the matchup.
"He might as well play with his face painted, he's a clown to me. Quote that, you can quote that, he's a clown to me, he might as well play with his face painted," Gay told Sactown Royalty.
I took Rudy's advice here and quoted him on that.
The Kings (11-13) and Thunder (10-13) now have nearly identical records. DeMarcus Cousins missing the last nine games and the Thunder getting Durant and Westbrook back have played a large part in that, of course.
Perkins has responded to Gay's comments.

More Perk on Rudy Gay: "At least if I paint my face I can wash the paint off. A virus gets in your bloodstream. You can't get rid of that."— Royce Young (@royceyoung) December 14, 2014
Tuesday should be interesting...
