"Bad News" Barnes busted
Former ABA All-Star and NBA train wreck Marvin "Bad News" Barnes is in trouble again. The Providence native (and resident) was arrested in Johnston by The Man, who found a bag of cocaine in his SUV. Barnes, who was easily the most talented basketball player ever to come from the Ocean State, acknowledged he's still having trouble with cocaine, saying "I'm still getting the help I need".
As usual, I wish Bad News Barnes all the best, but damn, man ... you can do better than this, right?
