It's not that Barnes can't ball, but his character is questionable at best. I can see why Woodson wouldn't want to take a chance on him.

As for Griffin, watch him after his dunks. Those elbows are swinging. It's not on the level of Malone or Mourning, but he's gonna get his one day.

You mean doubling up on Lebron (2nd most) for most flagrant fouls received the last 2 years isn't "getting his"? You guys are so full of shit BTW on saying Griffin swings elbows. I've seen him do it maybe 2-3 times on rebounds and that's because players were slapping him and shit trying to steal the ball.

He'd miss. His arms are too short.

You're a Clippers fan. Of course you don't see it.

Matt Barnes used to be so much fun to watch in Golden State. He was one of my favorite players back then. Sad to see him fall off. I don't even know what he can do now.

Watched Matt live against Denver in LA last season, pulled a pretty good Kobe impression in his absence.

maybe this nonsense is true for shooting guards, but come on now, Blake is a big boy.

To think I used to respect your unbiased opinions. This is so far off base it's laughable and now I know with certainty you don't watch the Clippers. Griffin is the most assaulted and cheapshotted player in the entire league by far. How much more punishment does he "deserve"? Not to mention he's not dirty at all and I've been praying for him to become an elbow swinger since his rookie year and he hasn't.

You and others have went from saying he commits offensive fouls on dunks (obviously not intentional) to him intentionally swinging elbows?

I'd rather Blake retaliate but I do see the reason he doesn't. I'd rather Barnes get suspended than Griffin.

I always have been and am still unbiased. I'm not the only one that's noticed Blake's elbows swinging like a stick at a pinata.

And you're wrong. I've watched every single game of his career, often multiple times. I have no problem admitting a player on my team is dirty. Reggie Evans was dirty. Blake Griffin is not dirty. I've always wanted him to become dirty and he hasn't.

Griffin isn't dirty.
But he plays a high flying style, and I find his demeanour to be very arrogant, and he flops a fair bit, which doesn't exactly dissuade people from hard fouling him.
Most importantly, he is very hard to stop scoring around the basket, and that combined with poor FT% means a hard foul is a good basketball play against him.
