J.J. Barea called Ray Allen a "fucking pussy" after getting ejected [VIDEO]

Barea wasn't shy about telling Allen what he thinks of him.
Last night's competitive contest between the Timberwolves and the defending NBA champions was ruined in the fourth quarter by horrendous officiating.

J.J. Barea was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul for bumping the Miami Heat's Ray Allen, meaning officials somehow concluded his love tap involved both unnecessary and excessive contact. Barea was ejected, and after T-Wolves coach Rick Adelman complained about the call, he was hit with a technical foul. When the dust cleared, the Heat were awarded three free throws and the ball, turning a tight six-point game into a double-digit blowout.

First, here's footage of the Barea-Allen altercation:



As Barea left the floor, he let Allen know how he felt about the flop and his melodramatic behavior afterward by calling him "a pussy" and "a fucking pussy." Here's the video:



Following the game, Adelman blasted the refs for the way they handled the situation, and Barea blasted Allen for "crying." From CBS Sports:
"I just have one question that I'd like to ask the league," said coach Rick Adelman. "Why is that a Flagrant [2] foul tonight, but the night Jarrett Jack hits [Greg] Stiemsma in the stomach with a forearm and that was a Flagrant 1? I just want to know the difference ... That changed the whole game. The whole game changed at that point. They got two free throws. They got the ball out of bounds. The whole game changed. It's hard to understand. They said it's a non-basketball play. I don't know what that is, so you'll have to ask them.

"That's what they said," Adelman continued. "We always ask the league. They'll probably say that they blew it. I mean, that's probably what's going to happen. At least come over and explain it, too. He just came over and said, 'You're gone.' There's no explanation; there's nothing."

Said Barea: "He hit me with an elbow almost close to my neck. That's part of the game, and then I just gave him a bump back. I've been playing in the NBA for seven years. I've been hit. I get hit harder than that every night. I don't get up crying, wanting to fight. Bynum almost knocked me out for the rest of my life. I didn't get up crying. You know? It's a little bump, so it's part of the game. Don't be like that. That's why the refs got all upset about it, but it's just a little bump.

"That was terrible," he said. "I get hit harder than that every night in the NBA."
Following last night's 97-81 loss, the 20-37 Wolves are now tied for the least wins in the Western Conference. Maybe the ultimate lesson is that loading up on white guys doesn't pay dividends?

Yea, if there's anything worse than a PUSSY, it's a FUCKIN' PUSSY!!!!    

Why the hate, for that delectable place, J.J? why is the worst thing you can call a guy have to be some reference to a woman's vitals, garden,  what has been through history the subject of poetry, including in the scriptures.....

think of some better insult, JJ boy,... and grow up and be a man, treating women as something better than the worst thing you can call a guy.......jerkface.....

They need to do an NBA version of a bad lip reading.

JJ is Puerto Rican. If we're classifying every lighter-skinned player who's less talented than the Heat as a white guy now, the whole team might as well be "white". 

And I guess we should consider Mickael Gelabale an African-American, too.

Any parent that allows their child to idolize an NBA player should be thrown in jail. And for the record, Ray Allen is almost as big a flopper as JJ.

That type of behavior is unacceptable and he should wait the season out thinking about it. Like it or not athletes are role models and need to be held accountable. because kids dont have the talent or deep pockets to live with the consequences of bad behavior.

I like racism too.  I think that's the takeaway from this article.

The ending isn't racist because it's framed as a question.

@nate.brennan   So J.J. Barea hails from Puerto Rico and has a Spanish name.  Therefore, you conclude that he is not 'white'.  What is he exactly?  If his parents and all of their ancestors came from Spain, which is possible given his light complexion, it is interesting that you look at him as 'different' than other white people.

@bort   I agree, and the author was simply referencing an article that questioned how the T-Wolves managed to put together a mostly white roster in a league that is predominantly black.....though he probably should have left it out.  It's getting more discussion than the main point.
