05:25 PM ET 12.26 | One loss to the Miami Heat on the road isn't really that big of a deal, but the Oklahoma City Thunder definitely felt like they let one slip away in a 103-97 loss. After the game, Kendrick Perkins said the Thunder need to stop listening to outside criticism. "I just feel like ??? never overreacting to a loss ??? we just got to start getting back to who we are as individuals," Perkins said. "Turning off the TV and stop looking at articles on ourselves and start just losing ourselves in the team a little bit more then the sky's the limit. We just got to start knowing what got us here and what each guy did to get us to this point."

This might sound better coming from someone who is actually producing. Perkins provides ZERO offense & very little defensive presence. Walking around with a scowl on your face does make you tough just ugly. Maybe reading the sports weblogs & the newpapers are effecting him more than anyone else, you think!

He's part of the team, so that gonna be kinda hard. KP is running his mouth on yesterday's accomplishments. Come up with some new stuff, I'm sure the rest of the team is tried of played 5 on 4 basketball. They are working way to hard to cover up your short comings.!
