Kendrick Perkins believes NBA players are not above others amidst the Coronavirus pandemic

Shortly after Brooklyn Nets announced four positive coronavirus cases, NBA spokesman Mike Bass said the league was pushing for all teams to receive coronavirus tests. This did not go well with the masses. New York city mayor said that the NBA players must not go ahead of the ill patients in hospitals.

Perkins, currently an NBA analyst, agreed with the mayor saying NBA players must not be given preferential treatment amidst the global crisis.

“I actually agree with the mayor. Just because we’re athletes – that shouldn’t put us above everyday, hard-working people,” he said. “I’m pulling it for the NBA family. But right is right and wrong is wrong. He (the mayor) made a valid point.”
