DENVER — There isn't much about NBA life that is unfamiliar to Devin Harris after nearly 14 seasons in the league. The 34-year-old has been a 20-points-per-game scorer, an All Star, played in an NBA Finals and, in the last few seasons, come off the bench for a lottery team.
But one scenario Harris hadn't witnessed until Saturday night, which was his first game in a Nuggets' uniform, was an altercation that started because of inflammatory comments a player made on a podcast. The Suns' Troy Daniels and Nuggets swingman Will Barton nearly came to blows after Barton joked on the Road Trippin' Podcast that Phoenix players should be sent down to the G League after suffering a 48-point loss to the San Antonio Spurs.
"I’ve heard of Twitter beef," Harris said. "I’ve never heard of podcast beef. We’re evolving."
