Barnes, who spent the last two years with the Lakers, had no criticism of his former employers but did admit that the sense of togetherness at the Clippers may be better.

"As soon as I signed I felt like there was something cool going on and that this was a close group," he explained. "We will see, but it seems to me that it could be the closest [team] I have played on. The guys hang out and you immediately feel welcome. L.A. is home, but the Clippers organization already feels like home, too, and I owe the players for that."



For a guy who's been on like 7 teams to say this is huge. I've said it all along the Clippers have a GREAT locker room and off court chemistry and Barnes will be a non issue.

In all seriousness, they have Hill, Billups, and Paul, three vets who demand respect, as well as Griffin, who by all accounts appears as a very coachable, nice guy.

They have a nice makeup, and have the potential to enter the contender discussion if Blake takes his game up a notch.

They definitely have a solid young core... imo they already are in the "contenders disscussion"... I for one believe their more a threat to the Lakers than the Thunder especially with Billups healthy.. but thats just me.

A team that just went to the finals, boasting the 2nd best player in the league, along with another top 12 player, and top 5 SG, as well as runner up for DPOY, all under the age of 25, scare me a bit more.

Think you're reading too much into it. Having just one guy in Kobe leading the charge is different from having as Hawkeye said, 3 guys in Hill, CP3, and Chauncey commanding respect. Differenct voices can go a long way towards creating a great practice atmosphere. That's not to say Kobe isn't a great leader. He is.

The Clippers are going to be a pretty fun team to watch this year.

He's just trying to justify his move to the Clippers after playing like crap for 2 yrs with the P&G and moving to across the hall at Staples. Him getting arrested was just icing on the cake. He'll be better served warming the Clipper bench as the 13th or 14th guy. We thought he could be a legitimate 6th or 7th guy on a team, but he's not.

Edit: even a scrub like Ebanks started ahead of him when Kobe missed some games.

lol lame attack, I watch as many Laker games as you do. Its evident that you cant defend your stance without exaggerations and contextually lacking arguments. Watch .

Show me a SINGLE 10TH Man in the NBA that averages 22.2MPG in March and 26.8MPG in April. Barnes got hurt at some point in the year and maybe those are the Laker games that stick out for some reason, but he was the only other guy who started a decent stretch of games AND the only other bencher that produced at a league average rate.



Edit: even a scrub like Ebanks started ahead of him when Kobe missed some games.
Point? Barnes still started more and produced at a FAR higher rate.

Who even created this thread? lol cmon in all reality... Matt barnes is garbage!!! He is so so inconsistent, He is injury prone, and he is a cancer! Even when he is at his best which isn't often, he's just an average defender, a good hustle player, an extremely inconsistent shot, and a slasher... which isn't all that much, a very replacable player... He is definitely not starter material and maybe not even 2nd string material... He is a bench player on a bad team and a third stringer on a good team... I guess this thread is just too say Clippers have good team chemistry which is great but probably belongs in a clipper forum :)

Most of the Laker fans posting in this thread make their fan base and LA sports fans in general look so ignorant. I didn't see anyone even attempt to dispute Chronz point that he led your bench in minutes last season. No 10th-12th man in NBA history has ever led his bench in minutes. Before you respond, I get your stupid point about the playoffs. It doesn't matter, a scrub or 10th man doesn't lead his team's bench in minutes for the entire season. Tons of players wear down and play their worst and get replaced come playoff time. Can a Laker fan make an intelligent point to dispute that truth?

Well, aside from the Warriors, Matt Barnes was a Laker for longer than he was any other team in the NBA. He barely knows the Clippers right now and since the Lakers scrimmage was open to him, he took advantage of it.

It's not really a knock on the locker room chemistry of the Clippers since he hasn't been able to be integrated into it yet.

Well... Lets see... Steve blake played 26 games with the clippers (starting in 10 of them) getting 26 minutes a game... He averaged 6.8 points and 6.1 assists... give him starters minutes and he averages over 8 assists with you...I'll take 6 assists for your back up point guard any day of the week... he also shot 43% from downtown with the clippers... alot better then...hmm Chris Paul...could ever shoot from downtown... Just saying.. Steve Blake is also a career 38.5% 3 point shooter, a very solid defender and a good playmaker...so I would say he is a relevant player!!! As for Lamar Odom... He did absolutely nothing with the Mavericks and ever since we broke his little heart he has been garbage and I don't expect that to change! As for Matt Barnes lol I don't even have anything to say...Their is a reason he has been with 8 teams in 9 years.... because a team signs him thinks they know what their getting...and he does provide good minutes for a while but then they find out he is extremely inconsistent, a cancer, and can't stay healthy for the life of him...not only that but he is only an average player if he somehow controlled all of his negatives...which he won't...definitely not worth the risk...high risk/low reward player... he is garbage

In my heart, Lamar still does have it, and I've admittingly said that I'm still pissed that Grant picked you guys over us. I was so sure he'd join Nash. But oh well.


Matt Barnes as I said will play better a Clipper rather than a Laker. He gives the Clippers a defensive hard-nosed guy. He used to fold under the pressure as a Laker and as the 1st or 2nd guy off the Lakers bench (to much pressure and expectations for him to meet up). But he'll have less pressure being in a Clippers uniform and he'll probably be like the 5th or 6th guy off the bench. Less pressure and less responsibilities for Matt Barnes. It's as simple as that.


I like the way your team is constructed and I've also said, if the Clips meet OKC in the 2nd round, I can see Clips prevailing and we can possibly see a Lakers-Clippers WCF showdown.

You realize Barnes had his best career as a pro with the Lakers right? Im not expecting him to play any better with us than he did with you.

Last yr, there really was no Laker bench besides Steve Blake and Matt Barnes. Barnes got the minutes especially when World Peace was out of shape at the start of the season and towards the end of the season when MWP got suspended, and in fact, he started a few games which led to MWP coming off the bench.

Problem with Matt is he gets injured during the most crucial stretch during the regular season, and then when the playoffs roll around, he doesn't contribute at all when we needed him the last 2 postseasons. The guy unfortunately is made of glass, and so relying on him playing 20+ minutes per game off the bench as the 1st or 2nd best player off the bench is not the way to go. He's better served as a guy who can give you 11-12 minutes off the bench as the 4th or 5th guy off the bench. Less playing time and less pressure and responsibility for Barnes means less chances of him getting injured, because he does have a reckless type of play that leads to those injuries for him.

In reality Clippers will be a 4th or 5th seed and get smoked in the 2nd round

I guarantee you that the CLips finish as the 3rd seed out West and actually upset OKC. They have the speed and athleticism with CP3 and Blake to keep up with OKC in some ways.

Well.... We had an out of shape Peace and Devin Ebanks at the small forward postion therefore someone had to play the position...

That isn't an intelligent statement and does nothing to discredit my point.


Dude... You can have Grant Hill, Matt Barnes, Lamar Odom, Ronny Turiaf, and whatever else your management wants to pick out of the Lakers garbage can... You want Farmar, Vujacic, D.J Mbenga, Adam Morrison???? What else do you want ??? have it all... Their all complete and utterly garbage!!!!!!!!!!!!


Problem is: We got them when they were all still relevant players!


Well... Lets see... Steve blake played 26 games with the clippers (starting in 10 of them) getting 26 minutes a game... He averaged 6.8 points and 6.1 assists... give him starters minutes and he averages over 8 assists with you...I'll take 6 assists for your back up point guard any day of the week... he also shot 43% from downtown with the clippers... alot better then...hmm Chris Paul...could ever shoot from downtown... Just saying.. Steve Blake is also a career 38.5% 3 point shooter, a very solid defender and a good playmaker...so I would say he is a relevant player!!! As for Lamar Odom... He did absolutely nothing with the Mavericks and ever since we broke his little heart he has been garbage and I don't expect that to change! As for Matt Barnes lol I don't even have anything to say...Their is a reason he has been with 8 teams in 9 years.... because a team signs him thinks they know what their getting...and he does provide good minutes for a while but then they find out he is extremely inconsistent, a cancer, and can't stay healthy for the life of him...not only that but he is only an average player if he somehow controlled all of his negatives...which he won't...definitely not worth the risk...high risk/low reward player... he is garbage

So Lamar Odom, Grant Hill and Matt Barnes aren't relevant and Steve Blake is. I don't even need to argue against you to make you look like a fool. You're doing it to yourself :facepalm:

so much hate for Barnes,he is all star calibre player,just lakers didn't know how to use him,he is 25-6-6 player if he is 3 option on the team at worst
