Kinda like another current famous NBA player (hint,hint: Kobe) One knock on LeBron James earlier in his career was that he focused more on individual goals like winning MVP and proving his worth to the media as opposed to winning a championship for the Cleveland Cavaliers and...

While I have even money that this self-spanking trend isn’t going to catch on in the NBA, that isn’t going to stop Marc Gasol from doing it.

Barnes’ foul (which ended being called as a flagrant) was during a key point in the 4the quarter when the Grizzlies were trying to build their lead in a crucial game 3.

Zach Randolph is a very intimidating guy, so I’m pretty sure Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes’ life flashed before his eyes when the Memphis Grizzlies forward charged him after he fouled him pretty hard during Game 3 of their playoff match up last night.
To Barnes’ credit he didn’t flinch during the awkward encounter, and was probably as shocked as anyone when...
