Eva Longoria: Alleged Dating of Matt Barnes Adds Fuel to Spurs vs. Lakers Fire

With Eva Longoria calling it quits with her San Antonio Spurs husband Tony Parker and Los Angeles Lakers role player Matt Barnes splitting with his basketball wife, that would make a match made in heaven, right?

Longoria is denying the rumors, but Terez Owens caught the meeting between the two on film:

I have no idea how that would work, although I’m sure it would end in a divorce brought on by infidelity, but this story makes the already tense feud between the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs even more interesting.

Matt Barnes is one of the biggest trash talkers in the NBA already, and if he gets any kind of fuel he can use on Tony Parker in a game from his possible relationship, then you better believe he will throw that fire.

Imagine Tony Parker going off for 20 points in the first half and the Lakers march out Matt Barnes to the court. If you don’t think things would be said concerning his possible relationship with Parker’s ex-wife, than you just don’t know Matt Barnes' style of play.

The two teams have been Western Conference juggernauts over the last ten years, but age is catching up with them and the anger of not being the best has put this rivalry on a razor’s edge.

Tony Parker has been accused of being a soft player over the years by his opponents, and the possibility of the Lakers allowing Barnes to yap at Parker about something that could potentially rattle him mentally will be something considered.

I personally can’t wait to see the faces Parker makes when Barnes starts getting graphic. We need NBA basketball for the scenario alone.
