Last season Metta World Peace started all 82 games for the Los Angeles Lakers. Well things have changed to start the season, new coach Mike Brown had inserted second year man out of West Virginia University Devin Ebanks. Now the new Laker starter is none other than...........you've seen him on VH1's Basketball Wives yep its Matt Barnes people. He has not made coach Brown regret his decision, Barnes was impressive in the victory over the Memphis Grizzlies netting 15 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. On the season Barnes averages are 8.1 ppg and 5.3 rpg, Barnes not known to put up too many offensive numbers but its a plus when he can. Matt Barnes was recruited last offseason by Kobe Bryant because of his fierce perimeter defense. Every team needs a defensive stopper at the 3 spot the Lakers have two Metta and Matt i call them M&M. Congratss to Matt Barnes on being named the starter for this season!
