John Kuester spats with Matt Barnes

Dave McMenamin of ESPNLA.com:

Barnes was subbed out of the game and is now cursing/gesturing towards one of the Lakers’ assistants. I think Q. Chuck is peacemaker.

Barnes is a bit of a loose cannon, so this isn’t necessarily a redux of John Kuester’s Pistons tenure. Plus, it appears they made up. Kevin Ding of The Orange County Register:

Matt Barnes was visibly upset after getting taken out of the game early in the fourth quarter Saturday night, cursing toward the Lakers’ assistant coaches. Lakers assistant coach Chuck Person tried to calm Barnes down at the time, and Barnes said in the locker room afterward to reporters that he didn’t want to discuss anything but what happened between the lines.

“If you want to talk about the game, we can talk about the game,” said Barnes, who had positive interaction with Lakers lead assistant John Kuester in the postgame locker room.

    Hey Kuester is a proven assistant coach.  Trying to give him a rap as someone who gets under the skins of players is sort of a cheap shot.  As we can see from the exploits of the current Pistons team, throwing Q under the bus was the easy part of fixing the franchise.

      No one has to try “to give him a rap as someone who gets under the skins of players.”  He’s doing that all by himself.  What a charming guy (not).
