08:08 AM ET 03.21 | Kendrick Perkins isn't shy with his opinions, including those on a possible Heat-Celtics playoff matchup. Perkins spoke of how supremely confident his former teammates are against Miami. "Arrogant in a good way," he said. "Each guy feels they have a matchup to their advantage against Miami." ... Perkins sees Ray Allen remaining a problem for Dwyane Wade "because Dwyane falls asleep a lot. He doesn't like to guard screen-and-rolls, and that's what Ray specializes in. Dwyane doesn't like to get picked. He's a good on-the-ball defender as far as a guy dribbling, but he struggles getting over screens." Will Chris Bosh slow Kevin Garnett? "I definitely don't think so," Perkins said. "I know KG takes it personal when he goes against Bosh."

Haha... nice. I thought the same thing. I know it was painful for him to get traded, but the bromance for his former team is a bit overwhelming.

Honestly Ray Allen goes at that seem speed running through five thousand screens a game. He doesn't just get open against the Heat.
