The Wookiee warrior from the Star Wars universe stole the show on social media, and after Game 3, Kevin Love asked big man Kendrick Perkins if he wanted to go hang out with Chewie.
He was probably joking, but the response from Perkins was shocking to say the least. He seemed to have no idea who Chewbacca was. This begs the question, has Kendrick Perkins never seen Star Wars? Or is he just pulling our chain?
Kevin Love: “Are you going to go hang out with Chewbacca?”
Kendrick Perkins: “Who is that?”
(Love shows Perk a photo on his phone of Chewy sitting courtside at Game 3)
Perk: “Oh, I don’t really keep up with all that new stuff.”

Perkins obviously has no clue about the Star Wars universe, which is fine, but how you do you grow up in the USA and not know who Chewbacca is? Does he even know who Khloe Kardashian is?
