I’m from Texas, so I could never leave a business in Boston and think I can run it from Texas. I did open something in Oklahoma, and we got traded, so that’s why I never wanted to do anything like that until he retired, and we were home, and I knew we would be here. I’m looking to open something now. it was always uncertainty. Even going to college, I went to college in Boston, and we got traded and my credits wouldn’t transfer. It was like a standstill. It’s always a standstill with the NBA.”

I literally had a problem with him doing ESPN because I’m not used to the negative side of him. We were actually having a lot of arguments about it because I don’t like it. I’m a positive person. He was a player before and I remember when Shaq would do, “Shaqtin’ a Fool,” and I used to try to keep my kids from seeing it and just try to keep them away from it because I hated the part where he was getting teased or criticized. Now that he’s doing it, I have to remind him. And he’s trying to not be biased and I understand it, but I literally don’t like that part of him doing analysis work.
She is, in addition, a realtor associated with Coldwell Banker Realty.

Kendrick Perkins relationships

The NBA star revealed last summer that if Kevin Durant doesn’t want to be his friend anymore, that’s on the two-time Finals MVP.
He spoke of the sour relationship he has with Durant saying
I mean, listen. One thing about it is, I’ve been the same person that I’ve been in the league,”
“I’ve been outspoken, I’ve been a leader, I’ve been the same guy that you see on TV, I’ve been the same person that I’ve been in the NBA. So, at the end of the day guess what? If Kevin Durant chooses not to be my friend, that’s on him. Because every other person that I befriended in the NBA, I’m still cool with to this day. I can still pick up the phone and call them.”
Kendrick Perkins kids
Being the father of four children, including two pre-teen boys is expensive, even if you are an NBA star.
Last years reports surfaced about Perkin’s children accumulating $16,000 of Fortnite charges on his credit card. The 14-year NBA veteran said he learned about the charges after his card was declined.
Perkins explained how his kids went wild with Fortnite, saying
“I get my credit card bill back, right? I go to the store; I go to buy something – credit card declined,” Perkins said. “I’m like, ‘What? I haven’t used this; I just paid it.’ Come to find out I got $16,000 worth of Fortnite bills on my credit card. Ever since then, I was like you know what? I’m cool on Fortnite, I do not indulge in video games.”
Perkins said he disputed the charge but from that point, he made it clear to his kids: no video-game talk with him, only their mother.
In addition to Fortnite, both Perkins boys play basketball, Vanity said of her boys:
I feel so proud of him because he was literally born to be a ball player. He lives it, so I’m embracing it and supporting him. I’m at his practices, his games… right now we’re trying to work on his diet. I’m proud of him. Whatever he wants to do, I’m with it. My other son, my oldest is into it now. It took him awhile. We kind of let him go with the flow of whatever he wanted to do, and now, he’s real big into it. So, you will be seeing more of him as well.
