Kendrick Perkins and Kevin Durant got into it on Twitter recently after the former declared Russell Westbrook the best Oklahoma City Thunder player of all-time. The current Nets player took some shots at Perkins, who played with OKC from 2010-14, and now Gilbert Arenas has jumped into the discussion, too.

"Everyone has there opinion about @easymoneysniper GS move and as a hooper u should have put more thought into what u said so I'll give u an history lesson," Arenas wrote in a post he directed at Perkins. He generally defended Durant, who he said "had no choice" but to leave because "OKC was moving backwards." 

He continued, "NOW here's why KD had no choice..ya sit on tv with pushing rings and legacy down kids fans throats so KD is a free agent at 27 years old with a sheet that looks like this." Arenas highlighted Durant's achievements, all of which he accomplished at a relatively young age. "7 time all star.7 time all Nba...4 time scoring champ..1 time mvp..2 time allstar mvp.2 time gold medalists💯 there's not 5 NBA players in history that can say they were FIRST BALLET HALL OF FAMERS by 27."

Arenas attempted to soften the blow near the end of his lengthy Instagram post, claiming he agrees with "99%" of what Perkins says, but he also said that "everyone is not lucky enough to be a sorry ass rebuilding Boston team," referencing Perkins' time with the Celtics. "Now u think u light skinned with ya chest out," he added.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

@therealkendrickperkins everyone has there opinion about @easymoneysniper GS move and as a hooper u should have put more thought into what u said so I'll give u an history lesson..2012 a young and upcoming okc team went to the finals being (inexperience) they lost to the HEAT...2013 the team didn't succeed like they would have wanted.that summer OKC ownership made the dumbest move by not securing (harden) if u can put harden back.(KD/Russ/harden) was more powerful then (curry/klay/green) which later became the team too beat (GS 1 ring ) could have been Easily been (OKC 3 peat if harden never left) but let's keep moving..now 2016 okc takes. 3-1 to GS and loses.cavs won the championship that season.KD is a free agent....here's where short minded thinkers fail to realize @easymoneysniper had no choice..OKC was moving backwards in progress..NOW here's why KD had no choice..ya sit on tv with pushing rings and legacy down kids fans throats so KD is a free agent at 27 years old with a sheet that looks like this👀7 time all star.7 time all Nba...4 time scoring champ..1 time mvp..2 time allstar mvp.2 time gold medalists💯 there's not 5 NBA players in history that can say they were FIRST BALLET HALL OF FAMERS by 27...the only thing needed as an individual player was (ring and finals mvp) now let's take a look at opinions..only two teams that can give him those two boxes were GS and cavs who were the champs..being the champs cavs wasn't making a move..actually like me say this better..CAVS being cheap asses wasn't gonna sign KD (Dan Gilbert bought that team in 2005) the biggest outside free agent they have signed was @thereallhughes in 2005...that was 15 years ago...contracts has double since then and that's still the biggest outside free agent signings 🤔🤦🏾‍♂️ so the only team that's left was GS....as someone checking boxes off his nba career that was the smartest move he could have made💯I'm sorry Kendrick but everyone is not lucky enough to be a sorry ass rebuilding Boston team and bam bam two ex Boston players (Danny A and mchale) does a deal that makes u a champ..now u think u light skinned with ya chest out 😂 PS I agree with 99% of the stuff u spit tho 💯👌🏾

Durant, who caught wind of the post, took great joy in seeing the comments. "A lot of emotions flowing in the comment section," he replied with laughing emojis.
