The NBA is going soft.
Matt Barnes has been suspended for one game for “escalating an on-court altercation & actions following his ejection”. Next thing you know they will be impounded his Lambo for expired tags.
Honestly does this little scuffle warrant a suspension?
Meanwhile, Jason Terry who started this whole thing had some choice words for Barnes.
The fight — well, what passes for a fight in the NBA, Jason Terry pushed Steve Blake, they bumped chests, Matt Barnes came flying in to play protector, there was a lot more pushing — was Thursday night, but the war of words has continued into Friday.
“That is a guy who is as soft as Charmin toilet paper,” Terry said.
This is some quality trash talking, no need to suspend players over this. Unless someone goes Dominique Wilkins on an opponent let them be salty, it makes the game more interesting.
Are you listening Mob Boss Stern?
