I totally agree that he's a pretty good player and i would love for such a player to be on the celtics. but e fact is ppl are just throwing around words like "tough player", "nasty" when today jason terry kinda showed that he's more of a gangster than barnes.

But as far as Barnes...I think his tats making look more tough then he his. Now if he was just as gritty as Artest paired with those tattoos then we got a different story.

By lightly pushing a skinny PG while he was already going to the ground? Yeah, you're right, Terry was probably a gladiator in some past life...

Barnes never backs down and is always in the thick of a situation. He's tough for this league, but whether or not he'd be the same guy 20 years ago when those shoves were actually punches... that's another story.

Regardless, your original post in this thread was so stupidly written and obviously intended to bait that I'm sure you have no interest in somebody actually answering your question.

Oh yes, so what did Barnes do? Pushing an Mavs assistant coach into the crowd. Yea Barnes, tough as nails.

Barnes never backs down? Are you sure? He backed down against KG.

Oh, since you are so smart why dun you tell me why ppl perceive Barnes as a tough player? Just becoz he doesn't back down? Is Ron Artest tough? By your words he shouldn't be becoz he backed down against Ben Wallace. Learn not to be stupid man, superman behind the keyboard.

Maybe its the fact that he beat up a ref during a summer league game. Or he did the whole "throw the ball in the face of Kobe" routine last year when most people back down from kobe. He's almost gotten into 5 fights this year. What does he need to do? Bring a shank to the game and start jabbin people with it?

04-01-2011, 10:44 AM
Tredigs nailed it. Barnes is a tough BASKETBALL player.. Is he in outside the court? who knows. But on the court, this guy plays you tough, doesn't back down, and stands up for his teammates. When he got in Kobe's face when he was a Magic, Barnes was a God on this forum, everyone was praising his toughness. Now that he's a Laker, it's the complete opposite? hmm..

I dont get with a few comments here Jason terry more Gansta than Matt Barnes???

what ever, what makes either one of them gansta??? they are on a bball court aint nothing gansta going to happin its about the fact that Matt barnes was reppin his squad, shyt that was just a dirty play by Terry..
and what makes somebody Gansta is 50cent Gansta????? Xzibit Gansta???
I bet you all say yes?? right.
I have been on support act for tours in Australia for both of these actors (not saying im hard) and they are just normal run of the mill not wanting any problem guys who put on a personna to look cool and tough (Actually 50 only drinks water and some Vitimen drink ive never herd of... never seen him with a Heney or a 40) to gullible people who look up to thugs...

Ganstas are people who do what they do for the strugle not pro ballers who get millions per year..

I'd have to say that I agree with you that I don't think that he is tough he's more of a thug.

However, I don't think most of these guys are tough. I'm not trying to demean anyone but I think that because most of these guys are millionares that they have more to lose being stupid.

According to league rules, a team's coaching staff is not allowed to grab other teams' players during a disorder.

Matt told him to let go a couple of times, but that ****er won't let go, as if he wanted Matt to flail thus causing more trouble for the player.

Back on topic! Matt Barnes is tough, and it isn't the tattoos. Even though he's not as strong the way Ron Artest does, he puts his body on the line for loose balls, offensive rebounds, and gets downlow with the bigs on occasion. And he's a bit of a loose canon, he probably should calm down a bit.

Being tough is both physical and mental. He's the toughest skinny guy I've seen.

Really? Actually he showed what a pathetic coward he was. First he fouls someone then feels the need to push him to the ground because he can't shoot.

Terry's acts last night were pathetic.

What makes Barnes tough? Oh I don't know, maybe because he doesn't take any **** from people. He's gotten in the faces of many superstars and was there to defend his teammate last night once again.

I would love for you to go face to face with him and we'll see if you find him tough or not.

Oh ya what makes the Celtics tough? KG running his mouth then cowering away once the officials come around?

He rarely ever fouls people hard, rarely ever gets in someones face unless they're 6 feet tall. Is it because he played on a really good defensive celtics team and was the worst offensive player so we must give him the "tough" label to give him some value?

matt barnes is actually a good player... he has good size, good at getting rebs, defenses well, shoots decent and is an energy player. yet he hasnt been able to find a team thats willing to keep him, despite his talents and undervalued asking price. i much rather pay matt what we're paying luke and i woulnt complain about all the money he be making.

some of the team gms and coaches dont like barnes because they think hes a hothead and can be a distraction. this guy has stood up to superstars like lebron and kobe, yet hes a punk.
kg grabs some guys family jewels and hes a tough guy? come on celtic fans, you can do better.

Why do people always associate "tough" with "gangster?"

Jason Terry showed he was more of a gangster? How so? He pushed Steve Blake... you have to be kidding me?

Barnes is tough because he plays with 100% effort, every time he's on the floor. He isn't afraid to get in someones face either. He goes hard to the hoop, plays tough D and backs his teammates up.

Stop confusing the word "tough" with someone who walks around the streets of, selling crack and shooting people.

Barnes stands up for his team. During that play he was nowheres near Terry when it happened, but immediately ran over, pushed Terry & got in his face. That's what you want, a team mate that will have your back. Chris Webber was commenting on how none of the Mavs players ran over to back Terry.
For those of you saying he backed down from KG. Bull**it. Look it up on youtube. After Barnes bodyslams
KG into VanGundy, all KG does is point at Barnes then he walks away. Barnes was still yapping after him & walking toward him.

when you compare Matt Barnes to Luke Walton Matt Barnes is an All-Star. Not because he is any good but because luke walton sucks THAT MUCH.

Matt Barnes sucks. He is the type of guys that get soo much credit since they normally suck to much that their games when they just suck a little are glorified.
He cant shoot, (he will make 1 or 2 3s here n there, every other 2 games or something) ...he misses layups, he makes stupid decisions etc. Saying he is a good player cause he hustles reminds me of the same people that give Luke Walton credit for "being a good facilitator of the triangle offense"

I will give Matt Barnes this...he is a decent rebounder because he is a hustle guy. But how many hustle guys does this league have? Being labeled a "hustle guy" usually means you suck.

But eh, he and Luke Walton can get away with sucking because the Lakers dont need them. Matt Barnes is not tough and he is just ignorant and ghetto. You guys should see some of his tweets. It is like a 9th grade kid from Compton tweets his stuff its pretty amazing.

Hahahaha clearly you've never watched him play so stop talking.

Nailed it. Barnes' toughness has nothing to do with being the strongest or best fighter but more so an attitude of not taking anything from anybody and being the epitome of the "us vs. them" mentality. No matter what team he's on (and he's bounced around quite a bit), his teammates love him and he's the first guy to stand-up for a teammate and when he gets involved in scuffles you can tell his teammates all have his back as well.

By lightly pushing a skinny PG while he was already going to the ground? Yeah, you're right, Terry was probably a gladiator in some past life...

Barnes never backs down and is always in the thick of a situation. He's tough for this league, but whether or not he'd be the same guy 20 years ago when those shoves were actually punches... that's another story.

Regardless, your original post in this thread was so stupidly written and obviously intended to bait that I'm sure you have no interest in somebody actually answering your question.

I agree with you completely, Barnes just doesn't back down from anyone and isn't scared of anyone, he gets in your grill and is feisty

Barnes Reminds me of Doug Christy from the Kings, same frame, very feisty

Lakers def have the feistiest squad with Kobe, Artest, Barnes, Fisher all dont back down

Most ghetto squad would be Nuggets Martin, Birdman, J R Smith

Funny how laker fans can call KG dirty, then rally behind that one Fisher play where he cheap shots Scola. As for Barnes, everyone already knows he's a poser. Laker fans were calling him a fake tough guy last year when he got in Kobe's face, but now that he's a Laker their all calling him "tough"

Scola had that coming to him, for tossing Lamar and talkin smack to Walton on the other end of the court. Also I don't think any Lakers fan was calling Barnes a fake tough guy last year, since Kevin Durant pretty much started all that fake tough guy talk this season.

Plus Garnetts always the one instagating anyways, plus he deals with emotions like a woman.

Oh, they were. Especially when he had that fiasco with Kobe. I remember Magic fans having sigs of the incident, and Lakers fans also commenting on it.

Barnes is tough on tv when the games are on and there are refs and etc. to rectify the situation. In reality, he's not from the inner city, streets or anything of that nature. In fact dudes the total opposite and can be seen on a housewives reality tv episode..... Nevertheless, he does his job very well, which is try to act hard and make it look like you're gangsta, when in fact if this were a real situation he'd get dropped off in a hurry.......

People should actually stop comparing Matt Barnes to KG in a street sense. KG isn't just acting out there and the court and will give it to anybody. Matt Barnes is just instigating a fight hoping the other guy doesn't actually want to fight him.... Barnes walked away the whole time, and didn't want anything to do with what JT was bringing last night. He pushed Jet from behind and then said "hold me back" lol.... What a ***

Haha JT... Barnes is a beach kid that's never been in a fight in his life.... Never even seen the dark side of LA. Hell I'm in it, and I ain't never seen him around these parts. Don't think because he got a few tattoos he's gangsta. Barnes was at Roscoes a few months back and got chumped off... If you gangsta why you running?

By real situation I mean the streets. Based on your reply I can tell you ain't in it, and never have been in it. Tyson Chandler is from Compton, comes to the hood all the time, Paul Pierce, Inglewood. These are real gangstas. Matt Barnes ain't stepped foot in South Central a day in his life... If you from LA you know what I'm talking about. You're probably a beach kid like Matt Barnes and are from Santa Monica.... So you have no idea what I'm talking about

Garnett is for from tough he picks on smaller players and everytime he gets into it with a big he is a ******, who knows if Barnes can actually fight, no one on the court wants to get suspended for the rest of year

Artest is the only man we can call a bad *** and who you SHOULD be affray of cause he is a beast and he just MIGHT throw on you do to the fact he is nuts! Artest i think makes Barnes feel tougher cause when Artest sits Barnes has to carry that for the team

Dude dont talk like you know Barnes, i went to his rival high school and played ball with him at Willow Springs Club in Citrus Heights CA, he went to Del Camp i went to San Juan. Barnes was a top ranked WR in football, and has always been a hot head and got into fights ALL THE TIME! Because he is skinny you think he is a chump? Trust me he isnt a fake, he might not win a fight with some NBA players but he wont back down Matt Barnes talks a lot of **** i seen it first hand but everyone knew not to **** with him. I HATED the guy.....dude thought he was hot **** but im not in high school anymore, i respect his toughness and heart for sticking up for his teammates!

I totally agree that he's a pretty good player and i would love for such a player to be on the celtics. but e fact is ppl are just throwing around words like "tough player", "nasty" when today jason terry kinda showed that he's more of a gangster than barnes.

jason terry, similar to KG, also punches people in the nuts. neither of them are tough

Yeah, the tattoos help. But, Matt Barnes is a tough guy because he doesn't back down. He's not afraid of confrontation.

Whether he's any good at being a tough guy is a different story, though...
