Earlier this season, before a win over the then 5-1 Kings, Kendrick Perkins was caught by cameras in a pregame huddle derogatorily telling his teammates: “These (expletives) are still the Sacramento Kings.”

With a rematch coming Tuesday in Sacramento, Kings guard Rudy Gay was asked about the clip that made its way across the Internet. He had some words for Perkins.

“He might as well play with his face painted. He’s a clown to me,” Gay told the Sactown Royalty blog.

Before Sunday’s game against the Suns, Perkins gladly fired back.

“I’d rather be a clown than to be a virus,” Perkins said of Gay, who has been traded twice in the past few seasons. “At least with paint on my face I could wash the paint off. A virus get in your bloodstream. You can’t get rid of that. That’s what I got to say about it.”
