Power forward/center Pau Gasol had his say today when asked about Kendrick Perkins of the Oklahoma City Thunder, who said last month that he doesn’t like Gasol because he’s “soft” and dislikes Lakers coach Phil Jackson because he’s “arrogant.”
Said Gasol: “Certain players talk too much. They should worry about their own stuff.”
For the record, Gasol is averaging All-Star statistics of 18.7 points on 52.8 percent shooting plus 10.2 rebounds in 79 games this season. Perkins is averaging pedestrian totals of 6.3 points on 51.6 percent shooting plus 8.3 rebounds in 26 games.
Gasol also has two championship rings and Perkins has one.
