Perkins: Thunder Have To Turn Off TV, Stop Reading Articles, Refocus On Team
Kendrick Perkins believes the Oklahoma City Thunder have to get over themselves one by one and recommit to the team.
“I just feel like — never overreacting to a loss — we just got to start getting back to who we are as individuals,” Perkins said after the Thunder's Christmas Day loss to the Miami Heat. “Turning off the TV and stop looking at articles on ourselves and start just losing ourselves in the team a little bit more than the sky's the limit.”
Perkins didn't call out a specific teammate but made it clear the Thunder's mindset is not in the right place right now.
“We just got to start knowing what got us here and what each guy did to get us to this point,” Perkins said. “We just got to make sure we start knowing who we are and what we are and what we mean to this team as individuals and the rest will take care of itself.”
