Expect Big Things from Matt Barnes

Hopefully you’re well aware of what Matt Barnes is doing by now.

A lot of people are probably suspicious that his numbers will drop soon, due to the depth of the Warriors bench, various injuries, and Don Nelson’s notoriously fickle lineups. However, yesterday Nelson said that he now considers Barnes his second-best player, after Baron Davis (audio of the interview can, I think, be found on the KNBR website).

Granted, Nelson said it like he could hardly believe the words were coming out of his mouth, is the same guy who likes cracking ding-dong jokes on the air, and gave Mike Dunleavy the most backhanded compliment of 2006 when he called him the team’s “best flopper,” but still… This is great news if you have Matt Barnes. Keep him.
