07:34 AM ET 12.20 | A locker room has all manner of unwritten rules and imaginary lines, and sometimes those lines are crossed. Following the Thunder's 107-95 win over the Bulls on Thursday, during interviews in the OKC locker room, Bulls center Joakim Noah was paying a visit to former teammate Thabo Sefolosha. And Thunder center Kendrick Perkins took exception. Sitting at his locker, Perkins loudly said, "We just let anyone in here now?" Noah, who was near the entrance of the locker room, shook his head and just said, "C'mon." Perkins, to no one in particular: "I'm just asking though." Noah again: "C'mon man." Perkins: "They just let anybody in the locker room?" Noah: "You want me to wait outside?" Perkins: "Just saying." Noah: "You want me to wait outside, I'll wait outside." Perkins: "Get your [behind] up out of here." And Noah then turned and left.

I cant wait until Perkins is officially out of the league...The guy has been horrible for about 5 years now and walks around like he is the second coming of KG....The guy is a SCRUB!

Talking to "no one in particular" from across a room is confrontation? Almost the same as cage fighting no? SMH...

More click bait by SI. On topic, Perkins knows he can get away with being "confrontational" because he knows Scotty has his back. But Noah could have just waited for his ol' buddy outside and then go club hopping.

Punk move. Be a man and address the guy directly, say what you're saying and be done with it. If you're not willig to do that, shut the ---- up.

There Are Some Lines You Don't Cross, Bro.

Perkins is a wannabe! All scowl and no bite!

I've never seen him really go at it at someone after he got pushed back. Have you ever seen him fight? He pretends to be bad arse even when he was playing against your Heat but when somebody goes face to face w/ him he doesn't do anything. Didn't Haslem punked him before?

December 20, 2013  10:02 AM ET

so if the headline said a 3 ppg 3 reb and 18 mins a game player told Noah to get his arse out the of the locker room would you still agree........

b/c that is the truth of the matter........

somebody ask KD or RW if they had a problem with it......if so, run Noah out

not some tub of goo taking up cap space........

Yup lol
when He dunked on Wade and Wade retaliated he didn't do anything.
Wade gave him the stare of death.
And Wade stands up for his teammates, Perk doesn't.
Ibaka is OKC's enforcer.

Perkins is a dooosh. Thabo invited Noah, he didn't just walk in there.

Kendrick Perkins is the BIGGEST waste of space in the NBA. Could he have been mad at the fact that he only had 4 rebs & 0 pts in 23 minutes of play while Noah's stat line look like that of an NBA player more so than a scrub high school player. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of Noah's either, but late Perkins has acted like he is someone to be feared rather than laughed at. New Flash Kendrick... "YOU'RE OVERPAID" ... If I was the OKC owner I'd talk Mr. Perkins to court looking for a SERIOUS refund, because clearly, the THUNDER have not gotten their money's worth.
