Jason Terry, Matt Barnes Exchange Verbal Jabs

After the two got into it Thursday night, Jason Terry and Matt Barnes have continued their scuffle all through the weekend, now using words instead of fists. ESPN Los Angeles has it: “Barnes was ejected from the Lakers’ 110-82 victory over the Mavs with 9:23 remaining in the fourth quarter for shoving Mavericks guard Jason Terry after Terry pushed Lakers guard Steve Blake to the floor following a play. Terry wasn’t suspended for pushing Blake but did take a shot at Barnes on Friday when he was a guest on Colin Cowherd’s ESPN Radio show. ‘I call Barnes the Charminator,’ said Terry. ‘You know what that is? That is a guy that’s soft as Charmin’ toilet paper. It’s not only that he’s a Pac-10 guy and he’s a [UCLA] Bruin, and so you know we hate those guys—us [Arizona] Wildcats, we hate Bruins. I don’t care who you are. Whenever you don that uniform, I can’t stand you, other than Reggie Miller. Barnes, I remember you when you were at Golden State, you’re a journeyman. You put on that Laker uniform and you turn into Jerry West, Kareem, and Worthy, and Magic. Those are the real Lakers, not Barnes.’ Barnes smiled when he was relayed Terry’s comments after practice on Saturday afternoon. ‘I’m not worried about what he’s talking about,’ Barnes said. ‘In Golden State we showed how to beat Dallas. You take it right to their chin and they back down. I don’t see that nothing’s changed since then so hopefully we see them again.’”

    Barnes FTW. Sorry, but eight seed knocking out first seed for the first (and so far only) time in a 7 game series is better than a college rivalry that Terry’s got going on.

  • Heals

    And all ya’ll Lakers fans thought Barnes was real tough when he faked throwing the ball at Kobe on that inbounds play a while back too, right?…

    You hate the Bruins, just not Reggie Miller? & you clown a guy for being on a team that punked you & ate your lunch on national tv. Maybe lay off the interviews Jet.

  • JJ

    disarmingly effective response by Barnes. Good job.

  • “torn”

    terry can’t move on..hater…

  • Riggs

    hate barnes on the court and off the court but that was a great response.

  • Lloyd

    Weak jab by the jet. Barnes wins with ease.

  • Dagger

    “I don’t see that nothing’s changed” . . . oh, so something changed?

    Not a fan of Barnes, I’ve always liked Terry, if only because he’s from Seattle, but that shove on Blake was uncalled for.. He hates everyone who ever wore a UCLA jersey except Miller?? WTF?

    Barnes soft? don’t think so. And obviously he’s smarter than Terry.

  • Riggs

    @robb: you mean he’s not not smarter

  • jay rose

    Dam Barnes brought the Dallas/ GS series into this…..nice

  • Joe King

    JET got bounced !

  • Fat Lever

    Dallas’ own coach called them soft. So, Barnes is absolutely correct.

  • C-Frank

    @Heals yeah Kobe kinda of like guys that play hard defense, in 09 when playing against Ron-Ron in Houston and Matt in Orlando and he wanted Raja Bell to come to the Lakers.

    barnes would beat dat ass terry need 2 sit DOWN!!!

  • Raye

    Terry is upset he was 0 for 7. Lakers did work. Barnes handles his & stands up for his teammates! That’s whats up. Dallas is whack and their only chance at a championship is about 5 to 7 years from now.

  • unrel

    i’d take kareem over reggie miller any day as far as UCLA alums go..
