5 Things About Matt Barnes: Other Than Being Arrested And A Bad Example For Kids

Matt Barnes
Matt Barnes Just Arrested

LA Lakers forward, Matt Barnes, has one more thing to add to his resume: he’s just been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. After a 911 call, police officers found Barnes with a woman who had obvious physical injuries, and they took Barnes into custody. Supposedly he’s been living with the woman and dating her for quite some time.

He was released on $50,000 bond after being arrested, but he’s not out of the woods yet. I wonder what his two kids will think when they hear their daddy was arrested for hitting a woman? He’s definitely not setting a great example for them, that’s for sure.

Here are some other things about Matt Barnes that you may not know:

1. He was born in California in 1980 and attended UCLA, where he began his basketball career.

2. He was a second-round draft choice of the Memphis Grizzlies in 2002, and was later traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

3. Other teams he has played for include the New York Knicks, Sacramento Kings, and Los Angeles Clippers.

4. He signed a contract with the Orlando Magic in 2009, but opted out of the last year after the Boston Celtics eliminated them in the playoffs.

5. He has only been with the LA Lakers since July of 2010.
