Big Baby got inside ... but the line proved to be too much for McGee and he decided to leave. Might have been the best decision he made all night. Because 90 minutes later, gunshots rang out -- and as TMZ first reported, Suge Knight was shot multiple times. TMZ.com

On Steve Ballmer’s excitement of owning an NBA franchise: “I just wish he would have been around to give those speeches when I first came in. When we were in Reunion Arena, I used to run up and down the aisles trying to get people to cheer and to stand up. Literally, I was running up and down the aisles I was so pumped up and so excited. I remember going into a board of governors meeting and one of the old school guys, I won’t name him since he’s since passed away, said, ‘You haven’t done shinola in this league. You need to sit the eff down and shut the eff up. I never want to see you or hear from you again.' And David Stern literally had to tell him to calm down.” Dallas Morning News

Barnes and his teammates found themselves in the center of a media frenzy and, although they debated to protest and not play until Sterling's punishment was handed down, they decided to let the NBA and new Commissioner Adam Silver deal with Sterling and they would play. That decision didn't come easily, as head coach Doc Rivers and his players met to weigh their options. "Everyone thought they had the answer on what to do and what we should do," Barnes said. "Doc brought us in and talked to us the morning after it happened. We all got to air out our feelings, but we decided as a team for Doc to be the only one answering questions and for us to concentrate on basketball, and I think that relieved a little bit of the pressure." news10.net

Then came tragedy for Barnes and his family on July 8, when his aunt, 48-year-old Tanganyika Williams was found stabbed in the neck and laying on a south Sacramento street. She died at a local hospital later that day. Police named her husband, 51-year-old Michael Williams the primary suspect in the fatal stabbing. Barnes, who resides in Los Angeles went to his social media platforms via Twitter and Instagram posting two pictures of Williams and pleading for the public's help to assist police in locating him. "At the time, it was really my only outlet," he said. "Being in L.A. and my aunt being killed out here, I couldn't get up here at the time. Social media has been good and bad for me. I just tried it, I threw the guy's mugshot up there and told the story." news10.net

Barnes felt the awareness that stemmed from his social media experiment, along with the national media attention he received helped bring Williams to justice. "Through all of that, someone called in with a tip and we got him arrested," he said. "It was kind of a shot in the dark. It worked and I thank everyone out there who supported and helped that out. Him (being) caught (and) him going to prison for the rest of his life doesn't bring my aunt back, but it let's our family rest at peace a little more and know that he's going to have to do time for the crime." news10.net
