Kendrick Perkins blasts Milwaukee: "The Bucks are the dumbest team in Finals History!"

Former NBA player and current ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins has made more of a name for himself after his playing days by becoming one of the more controversial, confrontational, and direct analysts we have today. So last night was no different as Perkins shared some strong and harsh words of criticism towards the Milwaukee Bucks while praising the Phoenix Suns.

The Suns did their job, defending their home court and taking command of the Finals, up 2-0. Following Game 2, Perkins made an appearance on the Get Up podcast, only to throw some harsh words at the Bucks, calling them the dumbest team in Finals History:

"The Milwaukee Bucks are the Dumbest Team in Finals History!!! The way that they play the game of basketball is beyond disturbing to the viewers eyes. Carry the hell on..."

Perkins is known for his bold and harsh statements, but he may be going too far with this take. He is right to criticize the Bucks, but Perk went really far by criticizing their flawed approach to the game, especially on the offensive end. They are playing too randomly and freely for this stage, as the Suns have defended and predicted their strategies with ease. That has left Giannis alone on an island, searching for help from his co-stars Middleton and Holiday. 

On the other hand, the young Suns have looked terrific. They are playing smart and patient basketball, running their sets, and executing. Not something you often see from a team led by so many players playing in their first playoff run. Booker and Ayton are looking like a forceful duo for years to come, with CP3 keeping the wheel steady and guiding them to the promised land. Now they have a 2-0 lead at their hand, but with the series shifting to Milwaukee, a battle is stirring up, as one game can change everything. Maybe Perk's harsh words light up a fire in the Bucks and push them into making the proper adjustments to come back into this series.
