    Good riddance to Mr. Barnes, one of the sleaziest creeps to ever play professional basketball. Yes, good luck making more money off the court, so long as we never have to witness your trashy tattoos and cheap pimp thug tactics in an NBA game again. Your cash can’t buy literacy or manners, Barnacles.
