Doubt it was just from that screen. Stiesma was probably cheap shotting on screens all night. He did eventually get a flagrant against Hill as well.

Yeah, Caron got in his grill too. Still unnecessary though.

Bet you ANY money, he doesn't do that to a guy like Artest or a Kenyon Martin. Even Nate Robinson.

"He hit me with a couple of dirty picks early on and I told him to watch it, then he laughed and he hit me with another one," Barnes said. "I kind of lost my control, which I apologized to the team for. There's no excuse for that, but luckily it sparked the team."

It wasn't just an overreaction to that one screen. There was a build up.

So he was mad someone played him tough and set good screens?

Would like to see him try that with Perkins lol.

I think a 1 game suspension may be coming for that.

People are WAY too quick to jump on the "fake tough guy" bandwagon and attack the perceived aggressor in videos like this without actually knowing the facts. Sure Barnes is a hot head but he's not going to basically punch a guy in the throat just for a hard screen, it's common sense.

I agree on a 1 game suspension although this is a bad example. Chasing somebody to the locker rooms AND waiting for them at the team bus is carrying drama OFF the court. Committing a flagrant 2 during a game is worth a punishment but isn't the same.

I don't mind players standing up for themselves but Barnes does this type of stuff way to much. He always does annoying crap himself, like I remember earlier this year Clippers clearly lost and I think it was Fournier was trying to dribble the ball out and Barnes just went all physical on him for no reason bumping him like a idiot. Stiemsma did well to control himself but I wouldn't have minded seeing him shove Barnes right back.

The problem with a lot of these types of players who always act/are tough is that if you full blooded punch someone the consequnces are to high so players will be allowed to get away with these types of cheap actions. Nothing can humble a so called tough guy like a ass whopping but in the NBA you simply can't.

The highlight of this scrubs career is trying to punk Kobe and having it backfire. Then he goes and runs to Kobe in the offseason
