Barnes fakes, Kobe doesn't flinch

Mar 8, 2010, 10:11 AM EDT

I may start rooting for a repeat Lakers/Magic NBA Finals, just so we can get more Matt Barnes and Kobe Bryant. That was the best part of Sunday’s game (unless you are a big Magic fan, then you might go with Barnes dagger three after Kobe sagged off him and the Magic getting some revenge with a win thing).

My favorite play came with just over eight minutes left in the third, after a free throw Matt Barnes goes to inbound the ball for the Magic and Kobe follows him over to guard the inbound pass.

Barnes then fakes a pass right at Kobe’s head, coming within a few inches of it. And Kobe doesn’t even flinch. It’s amazing. Watch the video. Then start hoping we get more of these two, because Kobe is right, Barnes is entertaining.

    Come on, Kobe flinch from this guy . . . whats his name . . Batt Marnes or something like that, lol. Who does he think he is, what he think he’s on the same level. Thats the only way he’s gonna make his name, riding off Kobe’s swagger. Kobe:”Get off me Boy”!

    Of course Kobe didn’t flinch. He was thinking of raping someone.

    Must be the other way around. Maybe you were wishing Kobe was raping you instead…

    …mmmmmmmmmm, nope. I was thinking Kobe is a rapist. Thanks for checking in though.

    Are you joking me? Do you know anything about that case? The supposed “victim” went to a local club and bragged about almost having sex with Kobe. In fact, they didn’t even have any sexual relations other than some oral foreplay. Get your facts straight you idiot before you go posting something that stupid.
    By the way, the case was dropped because there was no evidence supporting the “victim’s” claims.
    Stop trolling and get a life.
