Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes teamed up with music mogul Snoop Dogg to host the 2nd Annual Athletes vs. Cancer Celebrity Flag Football Game at Granada Hills Charter High School in Granada Hills, California. General admission to the event was $15 and donations were accepted to benefit cancer research.
At the event special guests, including Chris Paul, Nate Robinson, Mike Epps, and Marcellus Wiley all strapped on their flags and donned their jerseys to take the field for a good cause. There was also a family fun zone that included food trucks, shaved ice, bounce houses and face painting for the kids. It was a great, family friendly atmosphere that delivered a great day of entertainment for all that attended.
Matt Barnes entered the NBA in 2002 and became a bit of a journeyman, playing for the Clippers, Knicks, 76ers, Warriors, Suns, Magic and Lakers before returning to the Clippers in 2012. Throughout that time he proved to be a consummate professional, averaging 7.9 points and just over 4 rebounds a game during 12 seasons at basketball’s highest level. In 2013 he signed a multi-year deal with the Clippers, which will finally keep this savvy NBA veteran in one place for a while for the first time of his career. He’ll no doubt flourish as a leader for the Clippers for year’s to come.
