The Los Angeles Clippers shook the NBA world Monday night by exchanging Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons in a blockbuster move that was made authority Tuesday morning. It was an educational move, thinking about Los Angeles had quite recently marked its star forward to a five-year, $171 million get this late spring.
Matt Barnes was as puzzled as anybody, it appears. The resigned NBA forward, who burned through three seasons as Griffin’s colleague from 2012 to 2015, voiced his solid feedback of the move Monday night on Instagram — while tackling Clippers head adviser Doc Rivers.
“So you exchange this person subsequent to paying him this much cash … when everybody in the association and everybody who’s played there knows DOC IS AN ISSUE!!!” Barnes composed.In this way, better believe it.
Matt Barnes isn’t a Rivers fan. He’s by all account not the only spoiler of the previous Boston Celtics mentor, however Ex-Clipper Chris Paul apparently “loathed” Rivers amid his Los Angeles residency, while Glen “Huge Baby” Davis still has hamburger with Doc Rivers after a couple of run-ins amid his playing days.
Waterways’ gifted Clippers groups have flourished in the standard season however never figured out how to get over the playoff bump: Despite winning 50 or more recreations in each of his past four seasons in Los Angeles, the group never influenced it past the second to round of the playoffs.
With DeAndre Jordan the main outstanding bit of the Clippers’ “Enormous Three,” that presumable won’t change at any point in the near future.
