Most NBA fans like slandering rival players. That'll never change, as fans usually have the security of knowing that these players won't hear the criticism from behind a keyboard. Yet, these Celtics fans weren't as lucky. While voicing their opinions on Kendrick Perkins on live video, the former C's big man snuck up behind them, putting these fans in a very awkward position.
To give some context, random fans were stopped on the Boston streets and asked if they could name every member of the 2008 NBA Finals-winning Celtics squad. If they remembered Perkins, the interviewer asked them their honest opinion on the big man. Most gave their unfiltered thoughts without knowing Perkins was listening in.
This led to some hilarious confrontations, including one with a fan who questioned why Perkins got posterized so much during his career.
As always, this was a classic reminder for fans to treat athletes as humans. In some cases, you'll never know who's lurking around the corner.
