Found November 14, 2013 on Los That Sports Blog:
Tweet Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes is volatile. There’s no other way to put it. Even with his temper, Barnes has a reputation as being a great teammate, and got into a pushing match for Blake Griffin against the Thunder Wednesday night that got Barnes ejected. Here’s video: After the incident, Barnes took to twitter to vent his frustrations: In typical pro athlete fashion, Barnes has since deleted the tweet. There’s nothing wrong with standing up for your teammates every once in a while, but Barnes may have to find another way to do it that doesn’t lead to him getting ejected. It’ll work out better that way for both his team and his pockets. -ALR
