Boston Celtics: Charles Oakley
Former NBA tough guy Charles Oakley went on the Jim Rome radio show this week and sounded off on both Kevin Garnett and Kendrick Perkins. Here's the key quotes:
* Oakley on Garnett: "Garnett left Minnesot and hollered and screamed and all that, but he's not a tough guy. He's one of the weakest guys to ever play the game. He's a complementary player and went to Paul Pierce's team and won a championship. I wouldn't consider him a top 10 tough guy."
* Oakley on Perkins: "He's just like Garnett. They holler and complain. If Kendrick Perkins would play basketball, Oklahoma City would win a championship the next three or four years. … You're a power forward, you don't let guys dunk on you. I played 18, 19 years [and] I got dunked on three times."
