After the Cavs' 116-86 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday, Perkins and Kevin Love had an exchange regarding someone dressed as Chewbacca sitting courtside for the game.
As evidenced by the following tweet from ESPN's Dave McMenamin, Perkins thinks Chewbacca is a recent revelation:
In actuality, the beloved Wookie is as old as the Star Wars franchise itself, as he made his first appearance in Episode IV: A New Hope.
Ben Axelrod of WKYC tweeted a photo of Chewy taking in the Game 3 action:
Perkins was born in 1984, which was after A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi hit theaters.
During his lifetime, however, three Star Wars prequels and two sequels have been released.
Perhaps Love will do his teammate a favor and take him to see Chewbacca in action when Solo: A Star Wars Story debuts in theaters next week.
