Enes Kanter became the latest NBA player to call out Kendrick Perkins when he took exception to a tweet about the Boston Celtics' frontcourt from the former center.
Perkins tweeted Thursday the Celtics "are missing one piece and that's a Center that can anchor their defense."
In the case of Kanter, Perkins may have once again hit a nerve.
Kanter's 101.7 defensive rating is on pace to be the second-best of his career, according to NBA.com, yet few would consider him to be an elite rim protector.
He ranks 24th among centers in ESPN.com's defensive real plus-minus (0.77), and he's allowing opponents to shoot 60.4 percent inside six feet of the basket, per NBA.com.
