Dwyane Wade hilariously reminds Kendrick Perkins how he once owned him
Dwyane Wade may be past his prime now but he is not hesitating to recall some of his highlights especially involving some peers such as Kendrick Perkins.
The two were teammates last year for the Cleveland Cavaliers, albeit briefly. The Flash was later sent to Miami Heat when it became clear that the partnership with LeBron James, this time in Cleveland, was not going to work. Meanwhile, Perkins was signed to become a locker room presence but mostly wore civilian clothes during games.
Since it’s still offseason, Wade decided to poke fun by posting a hilarious exchange of highlights with once fierce enemy Perkins when he was still with the Thunder while Wade played for Miami.
In the video, Perkins dunked on Wade and inadvertently hit him in the face, as if to rub it in. Wade did not seem to appreciate the gesture and there was a little commotion involved until the game officials took care of the matter.
In a separate play, Wade got his revenge on Perk, but on a different ball game. The Flash spun on his way to the baseline and unleashed a ferocious dunk over Perkins. The Heat star celebrated by making some dance moves.
When the Warriors were not yet a powerhouse team in the NBA, fans were always treated with some intense Thunder-Heat matchups. Kevin Durant plus Russell Westbrook versus LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. It couldn’t get any better than that.
As of the moment, Perkins has not yet responded to the shade thrown by his former teammate.
