BREAKING: Ex-Boston player has voiced disapproval of James Harden’s methods and disagrees with the notion regarding workload management alongside….

Former Boston Celtics center Kendrick Perkins recently voiced criticism towards James Harden and Paul George for their lackadaisical attitudes during a critical Game 5 in the Western Conference Quarterfinals between the Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks. Following a 123-93 defeat, the Clippers now face potential elimination in Game 6 in Dallas.

Perkins labeled Harden and George as the most unpredictable players in the league, expressing his bewilderment at their occasional disengagement and apparent lack of effort. While Game 5 marked Harden’s first subpar performance of the series with just seven points on 2/12 shooting, George had previously struggled in Game 3, contributing only 15 points on 4/13 shooting.

With Kawhi Leonard sidelined, the Clippers heavily relied on both players to step up. Unfortunately, neither delivered in Game 5, leaving little room for redemption on their home court if they fail to improve in Game 6. Additionally, the future of both players with the Clippers is uncertain, particularly given their impending free agency.

Looking ahead, there’s speculation about potential destinations for Harden and George. With the Boston Celtics re-signing Jrue Holiday, the Philadelphia 76ers might consider pursuing George in the offseason to bolster their roster around Joel Embiid. On the other hand, Harden’s future is less clear, but teams like the Orlando Magic, in need of a playmaker to complement their frontcourt talent, could be a fit. The Brooklyn Nets also emerge as a possible destination for Harden, given their need for a leader alongside their roster of role players.
