The former NBA player recently shared his son Kenxton’s highlights reel on social media. Kendrick Perkins dubbed his son ‘baby Jokic’, and he could well be the next NBA star.
Kendrick Perkins was a solid big man in the NBA, averaging 5.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game on 53% shooting throughout his career.
Big Perk also won a title with the Boston Celtics, and has carved out a stellar broadcasting career for himself as a regular figure on ESPN and First Take. And now, his son, Kenxton Perkins, may be the next big thing in the NBA.
Kendrick Perkins call his son Kenxton ‘baby Jokic’
Footage of Kendrick Perkins’ 10-year-old son Kenxton went viral recently, which his dad was keen to get out there. The minute-long clip shows Baby Perk bullying his way to the paint and making some easy buckets.
“I’m raising my Killa different! I call him baby Jokic! The Complete package. Yes he’s only 10. Carry on…”, Perk proudly said.
This isn’t the first time he’s proudly shown off his son
Perk has shared footage of his son to social media before. He previously said: ‘Any Second Grader want this smoke?! 8 year old Kenxton Perkins but we call him “Stone”!!!.’
He has even likened Kenxton’s game to Shaq’s, although with handles like his daddy. One person joked: ‘No disrespect, but he’s already better than you are right now (pound for pound).’
While the comparisons to Shaq may be a little hyperbolic, Kenxton’s size and physicality is pretty obvious for all to see. He looks to be much bigger and dominant than his opponents, so maybe this is the early beginnings of the next great NBA big man.
