Los Angeles Clippers Rumors
In a conversation with Ric Bucher, Barnes said that Rivers’ arrogant nature took some getting used to when the two players were teammates, and he can understand why players from other teams might want to pick a fight with the coach’s son. “He talks a lot of trash and doesn’t really back it up. I think people are probably tired of that.
“He’s just very arrogant. You know, I know him personally, and at the beginning it kind of took a little bit to get used to. And as a teammate, you just kind of accept him for who he is and have his back as a teammate. Hearing guys talk around the league and seeing guys that had a problem with him while I was playing with him, I could see why. He carries himself like he’s a 10-time All-Star, and he’s not that. That kind of arrogance rubs people the wrong way.”
At a press conference held at Lovelia P. Flournoy Elementary School in South Los Angeles on Tuesday, the L.A. Clippers Foundation, in partnership with non-profit organization Vision to Learn and the Los Angeles Unified School District, announced that every student in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) will be provided with free eye exams, and students in need will receive free glasses. The initiative will benefit more than 600,000 students in the greater Los Angeles community.
