Kendrick Perkins has begun the long road back to the parquet floor. (Sports Radio Interviews)
“I’m feeling good. I’m actually at the gym right now getting PT. I’m in physical therapy right now but just taking it one day at a time, just trying to get stronger, and it’s coming along real well. I’m just trying to take it slow, but take it one day at a time.”
I don’t know much about Perk’s lifestyle and I have never watched him work out, but from seeing him evolve over the years I know at least one thing about him: The man is a workout animal. Perk’s transformation from the pudgy, bumbling, straight-outta-high-school bum he was as a rookie into a cut-up sculpture of raw power who just might be the best defender in the league leaves no doubt that Perk is as dedicated as they come. If he doesn’t come back quickly from this injury, it won’t be due to any lack of effort.
Get better, Perk. The C’s are going to need you.
