Perk isn’t even sweating the reloaded Lakers, he’s looking past them. Now that’s a championship mentality.
“I knew the hype was going to be over there on them and all that. But I’m glad the attention is off us because we’re the type that likes to put our hard hats on and do stuff and keep it under the radar. And at the end of the day, when you look at the box score, Oklahoma won. That’s the way we like to keep it…we are the Western Conference champs…so at the end of the day, we’re not chasing nobody except for the ring. We’re chasing Miami to get a championship. It’s no guarantee who is going to be where. But we earned the Western champs so we’re not chasing the Lakers, we’re chasing a championship and that’s what it’s about.” - Kendrick Perkins
