Perkins made a song especially for Christmas, and he completed the aesthetic by wearing the proper attire. The hat completed his appearance and ‘Santa Perk’ thrilled fans with a witty poem about LeBron James!

“I gotta get something off my chest,” began Perkins. “You know Michael, and Magic, and Larry, and Oscar. Kareem, and Bill Russell, and Timmy, and Kobe. But people, do you recall the Greatest Player of them all?”

“King James the GOAT, has a very shiny new ring. And if you ever saw it, you would even say it blings!”

“All of the LeBron haters used to laugh and make up memes. They never thought that King James would win titles with three teams.

“Then one foggy Christmas night, Santa Perk came to say, King James with your ring so bright remind us how the King takes flight,” rhymed Perkins. 

“All of the Lakers fans love him, and they shouted out with glee, ‘King James is the best to ever do it, its how he’ll go down in history,” he concluded. 

Perkins beamed with a bright smile after delivering the poem and welcomed everyone in advance for his Christmas gift. It certainly isn’t the first time Perkins is deeming LBJ as the GOAT, and it won’t be the last either.
