I'm really enjoying the emphasis to get Perkins going offensively. He just adds one more dimension to the team if he is a threat on the post or at the elbow.
One of the Celtics’ newest weapons really isn’t new at all. After establishing himself as one of the best low post defenders in the NBA, Kendrick Perkins is now diversifying his portfolio at the other end of the floor. The slimmed-down center may never be a primary option, but by adding a short jumper to his repertoire, he’s more able to take advantage of the defensive attention paid to his teammates.
