OKLAHOMA CITY -- For the second straight year, Oklahoma City Thunder starting center Kendrick Perkins paid a visit to the Thunder Camp held inside the Gaulke Activity Center on the campus of Mid-America Christian University.
 
Perkins' visit suprised the campers on Wednesday morning (June 27), a day after guard Daequan Cook had made an appearance at the camp. 
 
The 6'10 defensive minded center told the campers to "always work hard and dream big in everything you do, whether it's basketball, football, doctor, lawyer or whatever your dream is. Set goals everyday for what you want to accomplish." 
 
Perkins ranked second on the team in rebounds (6.2 rpg) during the Thunder's run to the NBA Finals, including a 10 points and 12 rebound performance in game three of the Finals in Miami. 
 
The camp concluded on Friday (June 29) with visits from OKC Thunder Mascot Rumble the Bison and Thunder Girls Alexis and Sheri.
