Matt Barnes – The Security Guard
Ironically, Barnes joined Kobe and Lakers in the summer of 2010. Barnes came to the team with one job, and only job only – stop the opponents best scorer. Basically, Barnes’ job is similar to that of a security guard. A security guard protects his station from intruders, and Barnes protects the Lakers from prolific scorers.
Currently Matt Barnes is sidelined due to injury, and the Lakers are missing his defensive tenacity. With Barnes in the lineup, the Lakers are an improved defensive and overall team.
For now, let the Security Guard rehab and get his knee back to 100%.
