Kendrick Perkins kicked Joakim Noah out of the Thunder locker room

The Oklahoma City Thunder took on the Chicago Bulls last night and won. After the game former Bull Thabo Sefolosha went to the Bulls locker room, something the Bulls allow former players to do.

When Sefolosha returned he had center Joakim Noah with him as he entered the locker room. Thunder center Kendrick Perkins told him to get out in an “obscenity-laced” exchange.

Apparently team officials and security gathered to keep things calm, Noah remained by the door briefly before exiting. Apparently the two crossed passed in the hallways later and exchanged words again though there is no transcript of that interaction.

Here’s a transcript from Oklahoman writer Anthony Slater that appears to have been cleaned up:

Perkins: “They just let anybody in the locker room?”

Noah: “C’mon man.”

Perkins: “I’m just asking though.”

Noah: “C’mon man.”

Perkins: “Just let anybody in the locker room now?”

Noah: “You want me to wait outside?”

Perkins: “I’m just saying, though.”

Noah: “If you want me to wait outside, I’ll wait outside.”

Perkins: “Get your ass up outta here.”

Noah: “Aight.”
