“It’s very disappointing. At the end of the day, this is not what I signed up for,” Kendrick Perkins told Yahoo Sports before Wednesday’s win against the Sacramento Kings. “I signed up after I looked from the outside, coming in to a good young team that has been making strides in the right direction. We got real comfortable. We ain’t got long to make a push. At this point in time, we are all just searching to find the right lineups and who is going to come out and compete at a high level every night. That’s been our main problem before anything else. We just come out too many nights and don’t compete at the level we need in order to win. What really is the key to everything is our level of competitiveness.”
During Saturday’s 105-98 victory against the Dallas Mavericks, Gentry got on Davis for coasting during the game. Davis said Gentry and veteran center, Kendrick Perkins, both got on him for not pursuing rebounds hard enough. ”That’s how you get credibility in this league as a coach,” Cole said. ”The top coaches are tough on everybody, including the star players. They always say, it starts at the top, coach is consistent. It doesn’t matter who you are; if he feels he needs to get on you, he will get on you.
