Perkins is in the news once again for ripping Irving over his concerns about the NBA restart. With that said, when Durant saw a funny video trolling the former NBA big man on Twitter, the Nets star wasted no time in sharing it with his followers.

For what it's worth, Kevin Durant and Kendrick Perkins used to be teammates on the Oklahoma City Thunder. Their relationship has reportedly become strained over the past few years after KD joined the Golden State Warriors in the summer of 2016 and Perkins became part of the media at ESPN.
The 2019-20 NBA season will resume on July 30 at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Perkins is accusing Irving of sabotaging the plans for the restart because he's not playing. Uncle Drew's Nets will be in Orlando, but he won't be suiting up since he's recovering from shoulder surgery.
Guys like Kyrie Irving, Los Angeles Lakers guard Avery Bradley and Portland Trail Blazers small forward Carmelo Anthony believe the focus on the Black Lives Matter Movement will be long gone once sports come back on.
Perkins doesn't have a problem if all the NBA players come to an agreement to not play again. However, Big Perk doesn't think Irving is the right guy to be in charge of the dialogue even though he is one of the vice presidents of the NBPA.
Like Irving, Durant won't be playing for the Nets in Orlando either. He's still recovering from the Achilles tear he suffered in Game 5 of the 2019 Finals.
