For over a decade, if an NBA team went into an offseason with a reputation for being soft, there was a very easy solution: just sign Matt Barnes. Barnes was an NBA thug. He talked a lot of trash and knew his role on the team was to come in and provide energy off the bench by any means possible, whether that meant firing up the home crowd or ticking off the opposing one.
Barnes was ejected 12 times and picked up 32 flagrant fouls, but his most memorable fight may have happened off the court when he drove 100 miles to fight Derek Fisher and the rest of the NBA world found out about it. Oops.
