-- Kendrick Perkins weighed in on coronavirus testing on Tuesday, tweeting his thoughts on celebrities and athletes getting tested more easily than the public. 

“At this point they should slow down on reporting celebrity testing on Corona. There are everyday people who may or may not have it that can’t get access to testing. Makes it seem like it’s only available to people with status, and that ain’t cool!,” he tweeted. 

Kevin Durant was one of four Nets players who tested positive on Tuesday, along with actor Idris Elba. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Our team set a great standard in pro sports and I know it will continue to do just that.
