I don't know what Webber said. But Webber is one of the smartest NBA guys on TV. Sure he doesn't have much working knowledge on the mid-tier teams but honestly...who on TV does? What Webber brings is just an overall understanding of basketball Xs and Os and he can convey that understanding. He has also played with or against a lot of the guys currently in the NBA. He also brings knowledge of those guys' game as well.
As far as Perkins the Thunder are 3-0 despite of him. He seems largely out of place on that team. Picks up silly fouls...is never in good rebounding position..isn't the same defender he was in Boston and consistently gets out played by Collison and Ibaka. I don't know what Webber said...but if its something along the lines of that then Perk needs STFU because to be honest...PJ Brown and Leon Powe had more to do with him winning that ring in Boston than he did.
Most ex players can talk about the stuff u brought up in your last paragraph.... I agree with U though, most cats are grasping at strwals talking about teams outside of the so called big 5 or 6.... NBA tv is geared to not bad mouth star players or anybody in general... they don't want to bad mouth thier product... Plus a lot of ex nba players talking about games, still have the whole brother hood dilema, and don't want to sh*t on thier boys... C-web picks his spots on cats to bad mouth... He just doesn't have the cred to do it my opinion, since he is a well known quitter to me... U follow philly sports to an extent, seen u in eagles threads...
U remember the AI/C-web seasons?? That sh*t was an ultimate embarassment... Ai got another cat to skip practices with and made maurice cheeks look like an a.ss clown... Him speaking on the character of anybody just seems akwerd to me... Everybody has the cats like to hear break down games though, can't hate... C-web makes valid points a lot of times, but still can't open up 100% to him for reasons I mentioned... some cats are lucky youtube wasn't around then... cause a lot of philly fans would feel a certain way about him, after hearing his interviews about thier young core lol
