Kendrick Perkins has deleted his Twitter account since getting dunked on by Blake Griffin

Part of Kendrick Perkins died on that Blake Griffin dunk Monday night. If you have yet to see Griffin’s dunk, first of all, I’m glad you were able to pull through out of your coma, and second, you can see it here. Griffin took Perkins’ soul on that jam.
