Matt Barnes and Serge Ibaka Ejected for Shoving (VIDEO)

Things got a bit testy between the LA Clippers and the visiting OKC Thunder last night — Serge Ibaka and Matt Barnes were booted out of the game for nearly coming to blows late in the first half, and Barnes tweeted (using colorful language) that he’s done standing up for his teammates. The tweet has since been deleted, but here’s what Barnes wrote: “I love my teammates like family, but I’m DONE standing up for these niggas! All this shit does is cost me money..”

    As a team-mate I’d prefer he didn’t stand up like that, it’s not as if Serge was going to kill Blake, and Barnes is more valuable on the court than off it.

    blake’s fault. he hooks ibaka for no reason and then it escalates. barnes just called blake a n199@ in that tweet

    One of the rare times I’ve liked Matt Barnes….only b/c I dislike Serge even more. All they needed was Perkins in there and it would have been the biggest meeting of the FAKE tough guys of the NBA.

    Matt Barnes and his fake contrition on twitter. How “Stuart Pritchard” of him http://clicky.me/7l3b .. “Hello Clippers”

    I think Serge is far from a fake tough guy. Did you see when he put that damn vice grip on Mike Dunleavy Jr? Lol

  • Anthony

    Any kat that takes a nut shot at a dude instead of squaring off….Fugazi. (In the words of former Knicks & Bucks big man Tim Thomas)…thinking Tim played for several other teams…strike that insert “NBA Journeyman”…lol

    Exactly. It is not like Serge was going to likely do anything at all, much less kill him. Well, nothing that little shove was going to stop.

    These grown men acting like bickering school yard girls is very odd.

    The reality is that the vast majority of these NBA players have been blue chip athletes their entire lives. They do not even know how to fight, much less want to fight. How could they? Blue chip basketball players are not known as a particularly wild bunch. Wildly emotional, like a (stereotypical) woman, prone to wild outbursts of emotion? Yeah. Skilled hand to hand warriors? Nope.

    Griffin looks, and acts, like he was raised by Powder Puff Girls and so does Barnes.

    This is all an act. Learned behavior.

    Lol yea that is unacceptable for any man to do that so I’m with you on that.

    Ibaka was about to Falcon punch/bus driver uppercut somebody!

    Using the N-bomb when referring to teammates will undoubtedly lead to investigations into NBA locker room conduct, bullying, and hostile work environments. It’s the times, you know.

  • LP @ThisisEther

    I don’t think IBAKA is a fake tough guy…I truly believe he would take things to the max in the Middle of an NBA court if nobody held him back……I’ve seen him get physical QUICK….

    all Perkins does is frowns, he wants no part of physical altercations.

    blake is so fake. why hold serges arm like that? to what avail?
