    Only a small tidbit on Harden, but i thought it was a good read overall.

    And well...

    Well Matt Barnes would probably be in prison if basketball didn't exist.

    He is a thug so I don't really care what he says. And tackling a player is not the same is breathing.

    I don't think what he said is necessarily negative. As fans, we complain about superstar calls all the time, when other guys got them. Now, we have a legit superstar that gets those calls, when you just "breathe" on him. It's just the way it is and more of a compliment, anyway.

    As for Barnes the thug, I think the article touches on where that comes from. He's kind of a good bad guy, which will make more sense for those who watch Better Call Saul. Personally, i care more about what these kind of guys say because it's not always PC, they say what they feel about what they see. Maybe I won't agree or like it, but at least it's not bull****, like he says.

    when he drives he stickes his arms out daring you to reach, but hes strong enough to keep the handle and finish. its not his fault players are too stupid to get this through their heads. its pretty simple, it didnt work the first 10 thousand times, why would work the next time? STOP REACHING! ITS A TRAP FFS CMON

    I think Barnes just wishes he would play prison defense on Harden. It makes sense seeing as Harden attacks the rim always and is pretty strong. Probably stronger than Barnes.

    Harden is adept drawing fouls, but those are clearly fouls. Some fouls on Harden are actually not called. Him and Zebo are b****ess.

    Well they play other guys a lot more than Harden. Harden is just 3-4 nights a season. For the other 75+ games, it probably pays off more to reach in. That's why they can't unlearn the reaction, and as a result, it becomes an advantage for Harden's style of play.

    I do not like the nickname "Harden the Interruption." Let's not make that a thing.

    I just don't see how that's a compliment to Harden I think he is complaining about refs favoring superstars.

    And Better Call Saul is a great show!

    My least favorite NBA player to watch draw breath is Matt Barnes.

    Whats up with these Matt Barnes quotes lately. First the Kobe front office one, then Iverson and strip clubs. Is it all in this interview?

    he's obviously stronger than barnes. barnes is too old to play w/e prison defense is, esp on the best wing scorers. he can play weak minded defense though, as he clearly shown

    It's a joke and that's how I show my dislike towards Matt Barnes.

    Dude has been in so many fights/scuffles in his basketball career.
