"no, no, NO...YES!!!"
What? You thought Matt Barnes was going to make a great play without having little bit of controversy surrounding it? That's not who Matt Barnes is. We can't just have people like Matt Barnes out there playing the hero without first having a grandiose chance of looking like the village idiot. Honestly, the only way for this to be a more perfect "Matt Barnes moment" would be if he fouled the shooter on the Pistons desperation attempt they took with the 1.1 seconds he left them on the clock. Just when you are ready to tar-and-feather Matt Barnes in the Town Square he makes a huge play, and just when you are ready to anoint him as a vital part of your team he does something that reminds you why you wanted to tar-and-feather him in the first place. Coach wants a timeout? Nah. Four seconds left? But who could pass up that great of a look? Just Matt Barnes in a nutshell. Somehow doing pretty much all the wrong things and having them haphazardly work out form time to time. That's why Matt Barnes has had a lengthy NBA career. Even though he's a bit of a loose cannon, and he's not all that great of a player, he knows when to draw you back in. You hear the announcer as that ball left his hands? "What's he doing?". As this clip ends you hear him say "you know what...", and there's a 100% chance he ends that quote by saying "he's just doing him", because that's exactly what Matt Barnes does.
