Oklahoma City’s Kendrick Perkins is apparently the team’s enforcer in the locker room as well. After the Thunder’s 107-95 win over the Bulls, Perkins became irritated when his teammate, Thabo Sefolosha, brought Chicago’s Joakim Noah into their locker room.

Sefolosha, Noah’s former teammate with the Bulls, had previously been hanging out in Chicago’s locker room, reporrted Nick Friedell of ESPNChicago.com. When the two entered OKC’s locker room, Perkins took exception.

Perkins and Noah had a brief exchange of words. Here’s what was said, per Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman.

According to Royce Young of CBSSports.com, Noah left the room and the situation didn’t escalate, but “it was obvious the Thunder players were agitated with an opponent being in their locker room.”
