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.
