We’ve seen plenty of NBA players get away with travels. But Kendrick Perkins might have just re-invented the game.
During an April 2 contest against the Miami Heat, the Cleveland Cavaliers big man received a pass at the top of the post. He then proceeded to pack his bags, hop on a plane and fly to China and back.
