Jalen Rose Roasts Kendrick Perkins: “I’m Only 10 Years Older Than You, But You Look 50 Years Older Than Me”



Kendrick Perkins and Jalen Rose have starred in several fun moments during and after the 2020/21 NBA season. Perk is a controversial analyst who constantly makes bold takes that earn him a lot of nasty comments. 

Rose is one of those who keep the receipts and bring them out when he feels it's necessary, as he did after the Milwaukee Bucks won the 2021 NBA championship. He called out Perkins for saying Giannis is the team's Robin while Khris Middleton was Batman, going off on Perk in the name of every NBA fan.

During that same edition of ESPN's "Get Up!," Jalen roasted Kendrick, saying he looks younger than the 2008 NBA champion, even though he's 10 years older than KP. 

“I’m only 10 years older than you, but you look 50 years older than me," Rose told Perkins after the former center criticized his hair. 

In fact, Rose is 48, 12 years older than Perkins. While other players like LeBron James are still playing at the highest level, KP is retired and seeing the game from the stands at age 36. 

Jalen must be one of the funniest analysts out there. He previously trolled Jay Williams over his tweet about the Boston Celtics hiring a black coach for the first time in franchise history before going after Perkins for his hot takes. 

Even though people can troll him saying Kobe dropped 81 points on him, Rose doesn't get bothered by that.
