Any basketball fan already knows Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins is the enforcer on the team. You got an issue with Durant or Westbrook, you are gonna have to go through him first. From the sounds of it, he is still in goon mode even after games. Last night the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 in Oklahoma. Thabo Sefolosha, who used to play for the Bulls and was a teammate of Noah at that time thought it would be cool to bring Noah into the Thunder locker room after the game. Perkins was having no part of it. Hit the jump.


The Bulls organization is cool with former players who are now with other teams, coming into the Bulls locker room after games to visit. That policy obviously does not sit well with the Thunder. When Perkins realized who Sefolosha brought in, he let it be known Noah had to leave. According to reports the conversation went like this,

Perkins: “They just let anybody in the locker room?”

Noah: “C’mon man.”

Perkins: “I’m just asking though.”

Noah: “C’mon man.”

Perkins: “Just let anybody in the locker room now?”

Noah: “You want me to wait outside?”

Perkins: “I’m just saying, though.”

Noah: “If you want me to wait outside, I’ll wait outside.”

Perkins: “Get your ass up outta here.”

Noah: “Aight.”

The two players saw each other in a hallway later and more words were exchanged, but things never got to the point of being physical. Good move for Noah, cause I don’t think he would want any part of Perkins. I am sure the Thunder let Thabo know don’t do that again.
