Long before champion Boston Celtics big man Kendrick Perkins made the leap to the other side of the microphone to be a broadcaster for ESPN and NBC Sports Boston, he was taking issue with how certain sports reporters affected his paycheck with how they covered Big Perk’s game.
Current Andscape senior writer Marc J. Spears was covering the Celtics beat in those days, working the Boston market in the Kevin Garnett-Ray Allen-Paul Pierce era. He recounted an interesting Kendrick Perkins story while making a guest spot on the CLNS Media “Cedric Maxwell” podcast.
