A sampling of activities for which Barnes has been suspended and/or fined while treating his teammates like family: Fighting Rafer Alston (2008), chucking a ball in the stands (2009), criticizing referees (2010), escalating a fight between Jason Terry and Steve Blake (2011), fighting Greg Stiemsma (2013), failing to leave the court in a timely manner (twice; 2013), kicking a water bottle into the stands (2014) and talking to fans/cursing at Suns owner Robert Sarver(2015). Amount in fines Barnes estimates he’s paid to the NBA during his career: About $500,000. What Barnes thinks would have happened if it had been him, and not James Harden, who “accidentally” kicked LeBron James in a sensitive region of the anatomy in a game in February: “I’d be put in jail. Or at least suspended for several games.”
Since 1985, only Jose Calderon has approached a stat line similar to Blake’s. Calderon had scoreless game in which he didn’t attempt a shot, grab a rebound or come away with a steal or block with the Raptors in 2005. But even Calderon managed to turn the ball over twice in 17:29. Blake’s night was historically strange, but he insists it wasn’t by design. “If I’d gotten an open shot I would’ve taken it,” Blake said. “But I always looking to pass first though.”

There’s a simple explanation for Stotts’ lack of familiarity with Blake’s statistical output. It’s never happened before. Ever. The Blazers veteran point guard recorded seven assists and no other statistics in a 118-99 win over Detroit. Blake finished with seven assists, no points, no rebounds, no steals, no blocks, no turnovers and didn’t attempt a shot or a free throw in 15:25 off the bench.
