[QUOTE]Over the last 10 games: Perk: 26 min, 40%, 8 rpg, 0.8 apg, 0.9 bpg, 0.1 stpg, 3.1 pfg, 4.6 ppg Green: 25 min, 42%, 5 rpg, 1.2 apg, 0.6 bpg, 0.4 stpg, 0.4 pfg, 8.3 ppg NR: 7 min, 18%, 0 rpg, 1.7 apg, 0.0 bpg, 0.0 stpg, 1.7 pfg, 2.3 ppg Krstc: 18 min, 63%, 4 rpg, 0;3 apg, 0.4 bpg, 0.5 stpg, 2.5 pfg, 7 ppg I loved Perk, and I even had a soft spot for the Donkey, but those guys aren't exactly tearing it up in OKC. Sure it sucks to lose the defensive cohesiveness he had with KG, but S. Oneal looks not too bad. And lets not forget that with out the trade, we had no one to back up pierce. Somehow Perk has become one of the most overrated players in basketball.

Shamrock1000 here is an interesting point that further proves your point. The Celtics point guard (yes point guard) Rajon Rondo is averaging more rebounds per game in the 2011 playoffs than the big brute Perk. Rondo is grabbing 6.5 per game and Perk 5.0
Even more interesting is big softie Krstic over his career is grabbing less than one rebound less than the big brute. Perk averages 6.1 and Kristic 5.4. People just will not look at these numbers.
