Matt Barnes has never been shy about voicing his opinions, even when they’re unsolicited. But diving head first into the comments on a photo posted to Nick Young‘s Instagram for no apparent reason sure seems like an odd decision.
Then again, Barnes is no stranger to those, either.
The story goes like this: Young posted a photo of the Lakers’ practice facility, with a caption that read “That’s what’s it all about #Ships.”
The photo had received over 15,500 likes, and several comments from
Lakers fans in support of one of their team’s free agent acquisitions.
Barnes, a former Laker who is now entering his second season with the
Clippers, apparently wasn’t down with all the pro-Lakers talk. So he
chimed in with a comment of his own.
We know this came from Barnes because the Instagram account he used is the same one he links to from his verified Twitter account.
As Barnes noted, Los Angeles will always be a Lakers town —
despite whatever temporary modicum of success the Clippers are able to
achieve. It’s just more than a little strange that Barnes decided to hit
up a fellow NBA player’s social media account to get his point across.
