Matt Barnes continued his streak of being one of the biggest d-bags in the NBA with this move from yesterday’s Clippers-Nuggets game. With his team up by nearly 20 points midway through the fourth quarter, Barnes came up with one of the feel-good moments of the NBA’s Christmas day.
Lamar Odom fouled Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried on a fast break. Odom came down with both arms and physically prevented Faried from completing the play. Knowing it was a hard foul, Odom extended his hand offering to help Faried up. Enter Matt Barnes. Barnes enters from out of the picture and pushes Odom away from Faried, preventing him from helping the opponent up.
The NBA has to be thrilled with how their product looked on the national stage. On top of this classy act by Barnes, Jordan Hamilton of the Nuggets dropped an f-bomb on a fan. Nothing like seeing the Christmas spirit out of these morons.

With five NBA games on national television on Tuesday, you probably used the commercial breaks as a time to open presents, chug another glass of egg nog and open some more presents. If so, you missed some quality programming.
Creative TV ads are a staple of Super Bowl Sunday, but Christmas Day is the biggest holiday on the NBA’s calendar. Companies responded to hoops’ Yuletide...

LOS ANGELES, Calif. Having seen Katheryn Bigelows depiction of the hunt for Osama bin Laden in the War on Terror thriller Zero Dark Thirty over the weekend, it became more and more clear that it is the motion picture equivalent of watching the Los Angeles Clippers during their franchise-redefining 14-game winning streak.
Both offer scintillating, dont-want-to-stop-watching-when...
Thus far, Chris Paul has dished out over 5,000 assists since he was drafted by the New Orleans Hornets in 2005. So it’s only right that for once Paul was on the other end of an assist after receiving a huge shipment of sneakers from Jordan Brand. The shipment most notably included the Air Jordan 1 “Knicks”, Air Jordan 1 “Bulls”, Air Jordan 13 “Bred”, Air Jordan...
