Clippers' Matt Barnes fined for inappropriate language towards fan
Wednesday January 28th, 2015

It's not just Marshawn Lynch who doesn't want to be fined. Matt Barnes feels the same way.

Barnes got docked $25,000 Tuesday for "directing inappropriate language toward a fan" and had to start thinking about ways to pay it.

Barnes also wanted to clear up that he wasn't cursing at a fan.

Barnes is making $3.4 million this year, so he'll probably have enough money to pay the league. But if he does have to find a day job he can tell everyone, "I'm just here because I got fined."
