A post on Barnes' Twitter page early Tuesday morning read: "Oh.. For all you perfect people out there looking at me w/your nose in the air, who have "NEVER" missed a court date for a "TRAFFIC VIOLATION" God Bless You..." Another post read: "Funny how a small situation turns into a "Urban Legend".. A $26,000 traffic ticket?? Come on now smh.. Have a good night" The 32-year-old Barnes played the past two seasons for the Lakers, and led the team's reserves with an average of 7.8 points per game.
