"Source that witnessed it says Randolph and Perk didn't physically confront each other but were just 'cussing back and forth' in the tunnel," [url="http://https://twitter.com/dailythunder/status/268937493636841472"]Thunder blogger Royce Young tweeted[/url].
"Oh, there was something. We had a NewsOK staffer who heard the yelling and something hitting against walls, doors," [url="http://https://twitter.com/JenniCarlson_OK/status/268932085207687169"]The (Oklahoma City) Oklahoman columnist Jenni Carlson tweeted[/url].
Randolph's explanation was so typical Z-Bo.
"There's a lot of bluffing going on on the court, that's all," Randolph said. "And I don't bluff."
These two have a history. One particularly harsh bout of trash talk came after a 2011 Grizzlies playoff win in which Randolph had 34 points and 10 rebounds.
"Perk's good, but all Perk can do is foul me," Randolph [url="http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/story/Zach-Randolph-outduels-Kendrick-Perkins-as-Memphis-Grizzlies-upset-Oklahoma-City-Thunder-050111"]told Fox Sports[/url]. "That's the only thing he can do. The best thing about his defense on me is to foul me. ... He can't (stop me). He's too slow. He's a big body. He can foul."
"I don't think nobody in the league can stop me. Not only Perk. I tell Perk to his face. I already told him before."
Thunder star Kevin Durant said Randolph was the best power forward in the NBA after that performance, and Perkins had a rebuttal. Stunning, right?
"If he says so," Perkins said ([url="http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/story/Zach-Randolph-outduels-Kendrick-Perkins-as-Memphis-Grizzlies-upset-Oklahoma-City-Thunder-050111"]via Fox Sports[/url]). "I don't agree . . . I'm not going to give my opposing opponent the credit that I got to go against. So if Kevin says (Randolph is) the best power forward, then that's Kevin's opinion."
Apparently Z and Perks got into an altercation after ejection...lol
zbo will fuck shit up though
