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.'”
