Simply mention that you might buy a Matt Barnes t-shirt if one were to be made & look what this guy goes and produces. Genius.

Matt Barnes has signed with the Clippers, totally making this Matt Barnes graphic relevant again.

Looks like Blake Griffin has been watching too many Real Madrid matches during the lock out. Flop City. 
However, the fact that Griffin flopped a little bit towards the end of a pre season game says more about the emerging rivalry between the Lakers and Clippers. Basketball in Los Angeles has taken a Dickensian twist.

Highlights from Dwight Howard’s All-Star Game

This was pretty fun to watch if only for Courtney Lee, Brandon Bass, and Matt Barnes actually playing like the NBA was back. It also makes me sad that Courtney Lee sort of faded into obscurity when he could have been huge if Orlando chose to keep him.

Other notable highlights: Gina Marie singing the national anthem, awesome fan who yelled out “WE LOVE YOU PENNY!” during Gina Marie’s singing of the national anthem, Gortat’s Jumpman dunk, Courtney Lee windmill dunk, Penny in those all white Foamposites, and Gilbert Arenas doing a through-the-legs dunk off the trampoline.

What bummed me out a bit though is that if the current NBA season does get cancelled in its entirety, that means Orlando will lose its stake in holding the All-Star game this year and will have to take the next available slot in 2015. A cancelled season also means Dwight Howard is free from his contract and this charity game could possibly be the last game he’s played in Orlando. And if that were the case, Dwight would have ended his career at least on somewhat of a high note: playing alongside his former teammates and friends in front of the city’s most die-hard fans as if he was creating an Orlando Magic Greatest Hits mixtape for himself to look back on one day.

Or it could just be Dwight hosting a fun game for charity with a bunch of players who are equally bored and ready to play any semblance of basketball in front of an audience since there isn’t very much progress on if or when the next NBA season will start.

Just some thoughts to mull over if you are a Magic fan.

Matt Barnes makes his presence known, and Carl Landry takes out a Laker girl. This one I think. Or maybe this one? Or her? Definitely not her.

According to his Twitter, new Laker Matt Barnes has been going over the finer points of the triangle offense with his kids. Now, two things came to my mind: one) I bet the Lakers didn’t send Adam Morrison any Power Point presentations or DVDs about the zen of the triangle offense. I think the Lakers just sent Morrison to Venice Beach and hooked him up with Medical Marijuana card and said, “ride those chillwaves on the bench, friendo.”
Perhaps influenced by the start of the new season of “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia,” how will Matt Barnes fit into the Lakers’ version of ‘The Gang’? Last season, Ron Artest seemed like Charlie compared to Kobe Bryant’s Dennis, Gasol’s Mac, and, Derek Fisher/Phil Jackson’s Frank; Artest was the “Wild Card,” but with this upcoming season, will Artest continue to be Charlie or will he move up in the world and become the Mac to Kobe’s Dennis? Will Barnes become the new Charlie or if he fails to perform will the Lakers Nation deem him, Gail the Snail?
Or once again, perhaps, I’m just a little too anxious for the new season to start. Lakers’ training camp starts in five days, apparently.

Matt Barnes is officially a Los Angeles Laker and clearly not a fan of Nick Van Exel.
Fun Fact: Barnes, a California native has now played for every professional team in California.

Matt Barnes has a laugh at J-Will, both share a mutual disdain for sideburns.

NBA Off-Season’s Amusing GIFs of the Night

Kobe is not amused by your ball fake antics.

Either Chris “Birdman” Andersen is having the strangest hissy fit over a bad call, or he is demonstrating how white people do the Harlem Shake. Or both.
