I was watching this pregame shootaround with Barnes from the Clippers/Nets game* and thinking his sweet spot must be at the top of the key because he was just swishing threes. So when Barnes got the ball at the top of the key, in OT, down by 3, with 26 seconds left my initial response was swish. That swish was the ball swishing through the net but not through the rim.
That’s OK. Kobe airballed a couple three pointers in a game once* and look how he turned out. Oh wait, Barnes has been in the league for 11 years and played for 9 teams. It might be a little late for hitting GOAT argument status. Jokes aside, I’m a fan of Barnes and have been since his Warrior days against the Mavs. I even watched him on Fashion Police a few days ago….and I have a crush on Gloria. I think that’s enough.
