Yea seriously was a BAD move. I won't be surprised if Doc starts shopping him tomorrow. Can't have a guy paid to be our enforcer having that mentality. Throwing teammates under the bus like that.

He is joking around relax. He is coming off a nice game against Minny so I give him a pass for the bad game tonight.

Where do you infer that? He didn't do anything to make it seem like he was joking. I'm pretty disgusted.

Here we go, freaking out about tweets again. For heaven's sakes guys, can't we just be happy about the win for once instead of finding new things to complain about?

He took it down because it was a dumb tweet(too easy to misinterpret) in general but there is no way he was serious. It was a joke but judging by the reactions I have seen in this thread it was clearly not well received so obviously he would take it down.

Look, I'll just assume he was joking because of the two periods. Putting more than one period is the sarcasm reminder on the interwebz.

hahaha why are people taking this so serious? everyone on the team loves him and he wouldn't have came back if he didn't want to be here in that same role

The tweet would look brutal at first glance, but I think you really have to keep up with his tweets to understand his humor. Relax people, everything is fine.

Really? You never saw it and now you're interpreting it now? You're basing your OPINION based on what people here are saying that never saw it either? Maybe I missed the LOL in his tweet...LOL

I just hope he didn't mean it. The dude is nasty and keeps our opponents on edge. I would hate to see him play with gloves on.

I think Blake should pay his techs TBH. Since Barnes makes like 1/6th what Blake does.

I am basing my opinion on Matt Barne's personality.... I think its a really blatant joke. If you think he would be stupid enough to say something like that seriously I dunno what to say especially when he already said he was fine with being an enforcer.

People here make a huge deal out of nothing. Its understandable if its Jamal making lots of negative tweets but one tweet from Barnes and people go ballistic.... I don't have any concrete proof of course but I don't think he is serious at all. Other people are free to think otherwise. It wasn't smart I will give you that. He should have made it clearer that he was joking or said nothing.

only problem is the rest the media is going to blow this out of proportion and next thing you know it'll turn into the Miami Dolphins situation. Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_26

He prefaced it by saying his teammates are like his family. He was well aware of what he tweeted and out of anger or not, it had truth behind it.

Hope he doesn't get suspended for it.

This is going to be big news I guarantee it, and the team will need to reprimand him to save face. I do think he gets fined

Ok so he made a mistake and It'll happen when your tweeting a lot. That's Matt's persona on and off the court. Again no biggy.

The only thing is, if there were 5 players in the league dumb enough to seriously tweet something like that I would put Matt Barnes on the list. He has done some pretty stupid stuff on the court and loses his cool quite often.

Hope he was joking for his sake but either way not a wise decision.

Yeah, when I saw that tweet I thought NO WAY does he actually means that. He's being sarcastic, and of course the media runs with it because of the words he used. It was a stupid move to tweet that during the game, but there is no doubt he'll continue to have his teammates' back.

Practically the entire team was at his sons' birthday a few days ago. They're like family to him. This ain't the last time Matt is going to get into a scrap for the Clippers this season. That's his nature.

btw, I like how Bullock came in and played with energy. His lone 3 looked good, but unfortunately just missed. If Matt is suspended for a few games, I'd like to see him get more minutes.

Blake is gonna get into a brawl and draw a huge suspension due to peer pressure to be a thug. Sad.

I think he proved himself a bit to earn more minutes. He showed defensive poise and some, especially that rebound on Thabeet!

He may have been joking, but the media won't see it as a joke. They'll use it to bash Blake.

That tweet grossed me out. I don't care if it was sarcastic or not. It's been like 1 week since the debacle with the Miami Dolphins. Use your f*cking head Matt.

And nobody asked him to stand up for Blake. He was just itching to let out some anger. That's on you

I think he meant what he said, but regrets it. I can relate to him. Back in the day I used to get in a lot of fights standing up for friends. And almost every time I realized I was the only one fighting...because my friends were not really "fighters". One day I vowed not to do that anymore. I am pretty sure Blake is not a fighter. It is not in his nature. Its natural for Barnes to feel almost betrayed that he stood up to ibaka because of blake but probably expected blake to stand up for himself more than he did. If they both got ejected he would never have tweeted that. I wouldn't worry about barnes though.. Like i said, its in his nature and when we really need some enforcement, he will be more than happy to deliver!

Matt Barnes is an African American, but we Black folk do need to re-frame from saying that word, don't mind the Tweet about getting tired of losing money and sticking up for his team mates, he didn't mean it, it's Matt Freaking Barnes, he does and say's stuff like that. But he should have kept it to himself, the world is to sensitive for that Tweet.

So Matt would've been happy if Blake was ejected with him, then most likely lose the game?

This wouldn't make sense. Just so I can get a good nights rest, I'll assume Matt Barnes is smarter than that.

On the USATODAY website sports page, they already have the headline "MATT BARNES TWEATS THAT HE'S DONE STICKING UP FOR CLIPPERS TEAMMATES"...

...so yeah....not helping.

I'm upset about this, I admit it. He made everything about him, rather than the team. All people will talk about is the tweet. Ugly. He shouldn't have shoved Ibaka.

He wouldn't have been happy but about that but at the same time he wouldn't have been so pissed about the ejection. I don't think he wants to feel like its his job to be the enforcer and take the hit for the team. I think he knows he brings other things to the table.

Seriously, that tweet, truer words (sans the vulgar words) have never been said by someone who realizes that it's hurting his wallet. How is that a joke or sarcasm when it seems more like he's tired of losing money when he gets paid little compared to the guys he "defending"?

Also, Matt doesn't BS around, he tells it like it is on twitter. he wears his emotions on his sleeve, on and off the court. saying it was a joke insults Matt's intelligence.

It was a joke. How about the white guys (2? ) Do they qualify as niggas? That word is usually a backhanded term of endearment. If he had said Nig*er it would have been different.
