Matt Barnes was Orlando’s designated instigator against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers Sunday. Exhibit A.:
(Greatest fake since Lamar Odom’s marriage)
In case you think that’s just the angle the video was shot from, here’s the video.
Barnes later daggered the Lakers with a late three-ball, with Bryant as his opposite.
In fairness, Bryant left Barnes alone to help Pau Gasol with Dwight Howard, but Barnes still made a statement by burying the shot.
He then followed with the obligatory, inarticulate Tweet.
I’m sure the rest of the league appreciates Barnes placing that wakeup call.
