Former NBA player-turned-analyst Kendrick Perkins (who works with NBC Sports Boston) was present during the Boston Celtic and the Houston Rockets match. Kendrick Perkins lashed out at former Celtics man Kyrie Irving while spectating during the game. Kendrick Perkins said, “You know, when I was playing for the Celtics I never really focused on the crowd or the fans, I was so locked in. But now that I’m an analyst and I’m retired, it’s amazing how many Celtics fans there are around the world. Do you hear these chants right now? Let’s go Celtics. Every time I think of that guy (Kyrie Irving), I want to throw up.”
