During the first half of Wednesday night’s Clippers-Thunder match up, an altercation developed between L.A.’s BLAKE GRIFFIN and OKC’s SERGE IBAKA that was right up Clippers teammate MATT BARNES alley in terms of his penchant for getting involved in on-court confrontation…
Barnes shoved Ibaka in retaliation for Serge’s shove on Griffin. Ibaka then went back at Barnes as players from both clubs converged to separate the two. Both Barnes and Ibaka were ejected from the game.
Obviously still sulking in the locker room while the game was in progress, Barnes tweeted this expletive-laced comment:
Well Mr. Barnes, if you weren’t hellbent on being a fake, wannabe tough guy enforcer forever in the middle of any and every on-court confrontation, maybe you could keep your cash in your pocket.
As far as using the N-word in his outburst, well that’s just this fool’s wannabe hard Westside demeanor. He thinks he’s Ice Cube or something.
In more important news, the Clippers did win the game, 111-103.
