My life is played out in front of the world.. My life is your entertainment, you see shit on blogs & tv & think you know the whole story..

Barnes told reporters Wednesday he thought the fine resulted from an exchange with Sarver that Barnes said started when the owner said something to Barnes. “When an owner says something derogatory to me and I respond, I thought it would stay there,” Barnes said. “It’s a grown man saying something to another grown man. I’m not going to tell. But the fact that he told or someone around him told, it’s crazy.” What did Sarver say to Barnes? “You can ask him what he said,” Barnes said. “He said enough to make me respond to him.” Los Angeles Times

“We don’t like each other,” Barnes said. “He didn’t like me when I was there, I didn’t like him when I was there. He’s said some stuff about me before that a few of my old teammates that were there that played with me on the Clippers told me about, so I’ve never liked him and as soon as he said that to me, it kind of got me going.” Los Angeles Times

Barnes said his exchange with Sarver was precipitated by more good-natured chatter with a teenage boy and his father and two men seated behind them who referenced Barnes’ $25,000 fine in December for kicking a cup and directing obscene language at fans during a game against the Washington Wizards. “They were just heckling me the whole game and I was laughing and messing with them,” Barnes said. “And I had a bad game shooting, so they were just on me. And I said something to the little boy because someone said, ‘Oh, you were fined $25,000,’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, that was a lot of money, huh?’ and he smiled at me and then the owner said what he said and I responded.” Los Angeles Times

Arash Markazi: Barnes said he was talking to 13-year old boy and his dad and a couple of hecklers but it didn't get heated until Sarver got involved. Barnes on Sarver: "We don’t like each other. He didn’t like me when I was there and I didn’t like him when I was there so it is what it is. If you’re going to say something like that to me, expect me to respond but don’t go run and tell when I do go say something. You can ask him what he said. He said enough to make me respond. We don’t like each other. I’m going to get a summer job at my kid’s school working as a yard dude. When you pay the money to get that close to us who doesn't want to say that I talked to Matt or I talked to Chris during the game. Twitter @ArashMarkazi

Jamal Crawford was in the middle of an interview after Monday night’s win when DeAndre Jordan decided to interrupt for just a few seconds — with a song about how Crawford should be the Sixth Man of the Year. Crawford, who seemed to be completely unfazed by his teammate’s interruption, wiped his face with a towel after Jordan’s song and answered the question. For The Win

Can he withstand another grueling stretch of rehab after fighting his way back from Achilles and knee injuries that kept him out all but six games last season? "It's just a matter of if he wants to go through it all again," Denver Nuggets Coach Brian Shaw said Monday night before his team played the Clippers at Staples Center. "I don't think that you can put anything past him." Los Angeles Times

Arash Markazi: Doc said the Clippers won't panic and sign someone if Barnes is out for any length of time. Doc's still waiting on the "buyout season" guys. Twitter @ArashMarkazi
