I didn't bother reading the article but I do agree with the idea of Matt Barnes being key to our success in the playoffs. He's definitely our enforcer, and the playoffs are the epitome of grind time. Behind CP3 and Blake Griffin, I'd say Matt Barnes is the hardest working, grittiest, grind it out player we have on the team. He may even be more intense than those 2 who are our star players. I know we're pretty much unstoppable when Barnes is playing well. He does everything outside of handling the ball, and he's the best perimeter defender we've got.
Of course, Blake, CP3 and DJ are the most important pieces for us, with Redick and Crawford being right up there as well, but we can't ever over look Barnes and what he brings to the team. I feel like he's going to be really special for us in these playoffs.
