Matt Barnes On The Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks suffered an embarrassing lost yesterday at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers. The game got out of hand in the third quarter after a Jason Terry shove on Steve Blake and ejections ensued.

The aftermath following yesterday's ejections is getting....interesting.

↵

Earlier today, Jason Terry took to the airwaves to take a shot at Matt Barnes.

↵

"We call him the 'Charminator' because he's soft as charmin toilet paper."

↵
↵

And in return, Barnes took to his twitter feed to address last night's altercations.

↵
↵

Me & the Golden St homies laid out the blueprint on how to beat Dallas.. "PUNK'EM" Aint $h!t changed homey.. So enough w/the small talk

This was echoed by members in the media again last night and as much as it pains me to say it, they're right.

↵

It started with the Warriors in 2007 , was followed by David West and the Hornets in 2008, Kenyon Martin with the Nuggets in 2009 and continues to this day.

↵

It's a label the Mavericks will never shake off until they win a title.

↵

As for last night's game, I love him,  but Rodrigue Beaubois should not start against the Lakers. Deshawn Stevenson should be the unquestioned starter if they meet in the playoffs. Corey Brewer is another option but it's clear that the Mavericks do not trust him enough to play meaningful minutes.

↵

Barnes has been suspended for one game following his role in yesterday's "fight" and Jason Terry has had his flagrant foul reduced to a flagrant one.

↵

And as I finish this story I see that Mark Cuban has tweeted this..

↵
↵

Ever notice how people who ride others coattails the most also talk the most trash on twitter ? starts in 30mins on ABC

↵

If these two teams do end up meeting, at least it'll be entertaining.
