  • Oh, I've been waiting to talk to this next guest right here, eh?

  • NBA analyst champion with the Boston Celtics.

  • One and only.

  • Kendrick Perkins.

  • Your reaction to this deal.

  • Do you feel it's a good thing for the Brooklyn Nets, Stephen A.

  • Surprisingly, I don't.

  • And here's why.

  • Yes, you have all the offensive power in the world, But guess what?

  • Defense wins championships, and you can't tell me the last NBA championship team in the last five years, that wasn't top five defensively, and I'm looking at this roster, and I'm saying, Who in the hell is gonna guard who's gonna guard Jason Tatum and Jalen Brown, who's going to guard Joe L.

  • M B.

  • You need people out there that's gonna defend at a high level.

  • And when I'm looking at this Brooklyn, this team and what they did, I strongly believe that they dropped the ball by getting rid of Jared Allen.

  • He was a real protector.

  • He was a live threat.

  • He anchored the defense.

  • So right now, what word comes to mind?

  • Stephen A.

  • On the offensive end sacrifice, Who is going to sacrifice?

  • Everyone can't have.

  • The basketball is only one of them transition back to the one and only Kendrick Perkins.

  • Now Kendrick Perkins.

  • You spoke about the Brooklyn Nets you asked about.

  • Where's the defense?

  • That doesn't appear to be a concern you have when it comes to the Philadelphia 76.

  • Is who, If I remember correctly, you're predicting is coming out of the East.

  • What about the fact that they didn't end up getting hard and when clearly, they at least made an attempt to do so?

  • Well?

  • Because right now, when you look at this Philadelphia 76 a team, they're playing agenda free basketball and they look like a family on the defense event and the offensive end.

  • You have guys being stars in their role.

  • By the way, Joe and M B is looking like the M v P like he's on the verge of winning it.

  • Ben Simmons is a defensive player of the year candidate.

  • You have Danny Greene, who's knocking down 3.3 point shots and then again, self curry.

  • Everybody wanna talk about how he could shoot the lights out, but it's more to his game than just that.

  • And when you look at the Philadelphia 76 is bitch, they have more depth then the Brooklyn Nets.

  • And I'm here to tell you, Stephen A.

  • We cannot trust Qadri, Irv.

  • That's where I'm going.

  • 11 games in.

  • Okay, go ahead.

  • That's where I'm going with that.

  • I was gonna ask you about that.

  • Talk to me about Kyrie.

  • Irving.

  • You talk to me about Kyrie Irving being out for personal reasons.

  • He's missed the last five games.

  • How should we be feeling about Kyrie Irving right now?

  • How should the next be feeling about Kyrie Irving right now?

  • Especially since they're just acquired James Harden.

  • They should be very, very worried about Kyrie Irving.

  • And I think this is part of the fact that the Nets actually went on ahead and push the trade because they do have concerns about Kyrie Irving.

  • Because if you're 10 or 11 games into the season and Kyrie just the size to go in, my who's the hell to tell you that he's not gonna do that come first round of the playoffs, this guy's unpredictable.

  • You never know what he's thinking, and carry is a major concern, but I think they got James Harden part of the insurance policy.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.

Oh, I've been waiting to talk to this next guest right here, eh?
