Kendrick Perkins Thinks Durant Should Hit the Weights

Kevin Durant’s season was good enough to earn him an NBA MVP, but that doesn’t mean he still can’t improve both his game and body.

The glaring criticism of Kevin Durant ever since he entered the league has been how skinny he is. Seven years later and not much has changed. Some bulk would make him even more ungaurdable and frankly, a better defender.

His teammate Kendrick Perkins seems to think KD can stand to add some muscle as well, according to The Oklahoman

“I feel like he could get stronger, in my opinion,” Perkins said. “I think that would help him a lot. I told him all the good and great players that played the game, from Jordan, Kobe, LeBron, they all put size on them, and it helped them….

“Seems like there was possessions he was tired,” Perkins said of Durant. “But, like I said, I think that’s (when) getting in the weight room plays a factor. Cause then you could let your body take over.”
