Right now, there are many people angry with the Boston Celtics.
That includes certain individuals who actually used to play for the team.
Kendrick Perkins is one of the many who feels let down by the way Boston has been performing lately.
He is having a hard time keeping his true opinions to himself.
On Twitter, Perkins said that he wishes he was able to be “the hood version” of himself on ESPN so he could say what he truly wants to say about the Celtics.
Perkins predicted that if he spoke his mind fully, he’d “get fired on my day off!”
If I had one wish, it would be for me to be able to the hood version of Perk on ESPN because if I could say what I truly want to say about these Celtics I’d get fired on my day off!

Of course, Perkins started his NBA career with the Celtics back in 2003 and played there for eight seasons before moving on to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Cleveland Cavaliers, and New Orleans Pelicans.
These days he makes his money doing commentary about the league for ESPN – and he has a lot to say about the Celtics.
He’s not the only one.
The last couple of games have been very rough for Boston.
They barely lost to the Philadelphia 76ers in Sunday’s Game 4 but then they got trounced by them on Tuesday night in Game 5.
They are now on the verge of getting pushed out of the playoffs after being contenders to make the Finals for much of the season.
There seem to be many problems within the roster right now – even with some star showings from their biggest players, the 76ers are outplaying them.
This is leaving many die-hard fans, such as Perkins, frustrated as they feel the season slipping away from them.NEXT: NBA Insider Believes 1 Factor With Celtics Has Been 'Under-Talked' About
