Kendrick Perkins and Kevin Durant went back and forth on Twitter.

On Thursday, Rockets guard Russell Westbrook returned to Oklahoma City for the first time since being traded in the offseason.

It was a moment that obviously garnered attention on SportsCenter.

Former Celtics center Kendrick Perkins, who also played for the Thunder from 2011-2015,  is now an ESPN pundit, and announced on Twitter that he was going to describe Westbrook as Oklahoma City’s best player ever.

He was met with disagreement from host Mark D’Amico:

Perkins responded by noting that Kevin Durant, another former Thunder great, “left the door open.”

After Perkins responded again, Durant himself jumped in to note some relevant stats regarding the Thunder’s “starting center” that year.

The back and forth continued.
