Barnes, Odom still going at it on twitter

Mar 10, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

This makes it official — I want a Lakers/Magic NBA Finals. Only because I want more Lamar Odom and Matt Barnes on the same court as soon as possible.

Let’s take you all the way back to Sunday (you remember, you woke up hungover with those stamps on your hand), when after Orlando beat Los Angeles and Barnes was in Kobe Bryant’s face, Odom called Barnes “a monkey.”

Then Tuesday, Odom kept barking.

“That (expletive)  that Matt Barnes pulled,” Odom said, “That ain’t never going to happen again.”

Wednesday morning, Barnes was home (apparently with his kids) when he read the quote and responded on twitter.

“Morning yall up early w/ the babies watchn Dora. Seems Lamar can’t keep my name out his mouth maby I need 2 put my sons (expletive) diaper n it”

Seriously. I want these two back on the same court as soon as possible. Sorry Cavaliers and Mavericks, nothing personal.

    This should be competition at its best and left on the court, then, resumed on the court when they match up again. All the instigation is not necessary and can only fuel potential violence. People, grow up…long live competition. Promote THAT!!!

    Barnes is a punk, you can take him out of the hood but you can’t take the hood out of

    Barnes is a nobody wanna b, if he was, he wouldnt have been to 7 different teams in 7 years sounds like a bum to me. To those of you who hate kobe and think he is a rapist, then what is Big Ben?

    As long as LeBron is in the east, Orlando WILL NEVER EVER win a ring. Lakers vs Cavs in the finals. Orlando had there shot and choked at the line(bring back any memories vs Houston) all Howard does is dunk no post moves what so ever. The Whole team including the coach is softttt.

  15. leeskee - Mar 12, 2010 at 1:07 PM

    Exactly right, I couldn’t have said it better.

  16. Slick - Mar 12, 2010 at 1:12 PM

    Barnes shouldnt be in the same sentence as KOBE scrub a@@ bum

    Hey, Nick Geerz:
    Shine is an ethnic slur for Blacks, just like the N word. Mr. Odom’s race has nothing have to do with his marriage or the rivalry with Mr. Barnes. What is your problem?

  18. Worthy - Mar 12, 2010 at 1:35 PM

    You are absolutely right. I don’t care who you root for. It is all about the rings. Kobe has 4 and will probably end up with 5 or 6 and making a pronouncement on his guilt or innocence in the Denver case when there was no verdict, no admission of rape or any real evidence to support it is absurd. I wouldn’t want anyone on any jury who makes absolutes based on conjecture. But all the “so called” fans of teams whose rejoinders are “they suck” and/or cannot spell are pretty pathetic. The Lakers, like the Yankees, treat their players pretty well. I dislike the Yankees but I respect their buisness model. They spend money to win which is ultimately the fans wish. And tell me why the survey of all players in the NBA asking which team they would like to play for, they overwhelmingly say “the Lakers”. So sit back and have all the false illusions and delusions you want. I just say “SCOREBOARD”.

    Do you consider MJ a scumb bag? he cheated on his wife numerous times, so did shaq thats why ther wives left them. Cause thats all kobe is guilty of… is cheating on his wife, but back to on the court issues Kobe will go down as 1 of the greatest to play the game where as Barnes will be considered a PAWN in the game.

  20. go mariners - Mar 12, 2010 at 2:18 PM

    cheating on your wife is a moral issues not a crime, I think that mj is the second best player in the history of the nba. as for kobe we will never know whether or not it was rape will we? Ijust dont like the guy. so sorry if that afends you. go sonics.

    Who the hell is Matt Barnes?

  22. JudgeDred - Mar 12, 2010 at 2:28 PM

    Shine? Not sure what you mean by that, but if you’re referring to his color, you’re a disgrace to whatever race you belong to. It is people like you who, because of your self-hatred, attack others. Face it, Lamar is financially superior, genetically superior, intellectually superior and you’re just a below average ‘Nick’ whose life is meaningless. Shine? STFU you inbred, low-sloping forehead, incestuous, recessive gene, overgrown zygote. Now break out a dictionary and give deciphering what I just wrote your best shot.

    Matt who! don’t have a ring but Kobe & Lamar does.
    Case closed.

    No dude. Normal people only don’t flinch of an unanticipated incoming object when they get blindsided. Otherwise when it is coming right in front of you like what Barnes did to Kobe, normal people would have flinched.
    But you are right, this is the NBA not some Power Puff Girl arena.
    In a real man’s world jampacked with testosterone and all, Matt Barnes should know his place — and his somewhere down there in the pecking order.
    With the way he reacted, he obviously was a sore loser. The best that he would have done was maintain his cool and give Kobe back what Kobe would be dishing at him. Tit-for-tat. Since he lost his cool, among us men, Matt ended up the whining loser.
