Zach Randolph and Kendrick Perkins Cussed at Each Other Near Locker Rooms

The beef started late in the game last night, as the Memphis Grizzlies handily beat the OKC Thunder. Zach Randolph and Kendrick Perkins’ trash-talking got both bigs ejected — in this clip you can clearly hear Z-Bo tell Perk that he will beat his ass — and they proceeded to cuss each other out once away from the court. Per the Oklahoman: “After the two players were separated, Perkins ran off the court in front of the Thunder bench and into a hallway, where he had another altercation with Randolph outside the postgame interview room next to the Thunder locker room. The players were separated by Oklahoma City police officers. People in the postgame interview area heard something being slammed against the door. Security members huddled briefly thereafter to discuss the matter, but no action was taken against either player. The team locker rooms are roughly 50 feet apart on opposite sides of the hallway. An agitated Perkins declined to comment afterward. In the Memphis locker room, Randolph calmly dismissed both incidents. What was said on the court to get you both ejected? Randolph: ‘Aw, I didn’t say nothin’. What happened in the hallway after that? Randolph: ‘It wasn’t nothin’. It was a good, tough, hard-fought game. It was competitive, just out there playing, two physical teams that want to win, a lot of emotions flying, so just part of basketball.’ Did you and Perkins settle your differences? Randolph: ‘Man, I play basketball. I don’t worry about all that. Perk’s all right. There’s a lot of bluffin’ going on the court, that’s all, you know. And I don’t bluff.’”

    Pretty sure Z-Bo would beat Perk up. Looks can be deceiving, but he looks like he has hand skills. Perk is just a big country boy.

  • elmaar

    hand skills LOL
    not sure you can bet on anybody by the looks but ZBO should be faster than Perkins so yeah the nod goes to Randolph.

  • kwamepooh

    i don’t know if it’s a wise move to wanna fight a guy people call Z-BO.

  • Max

    When ZBo said “I’ll beat yo ass” did anyone else hear somebody say “I KNOW!”
    LMAO if that was Perk.

  • bike

    Z-Bo would win hands down. Big, quick, and most importantly, he is bat-shit crazy

  • Justin beeber

    Zbo is a south paw. Zbo is quicker and more athletic. Perkins is slow and can’t even jump. Too bad we couldn’t tell if he was crying or mad bc he always looks like it.

  • spit hot fiyah

    if perks knocks out z-bo he has to say my grandmama gave me that chain

  • jakethesnake

    you guys are hyping up perk by even considering that he could hang with zach. perk is all talk and scowls. that boy is softer than tissue paper.
