Harrison Barnes’ ‘NBA 2K’ Challenge Was Met By Some Unexpected Guests

Harrison Barnes’ Golden State Warriors are close to history. They just need to win four of their last five games to set the all-time single-season record for victories.

For many teams, the pressure would be unbearable, but it hasn’t seemed to faze the Warriors. There are many possible explanations for that — the laid-back nature of head coach Steve Kerr, the soothing dominance of Steph Curry, and the shape-shifting brilliance of Draymond Green among others — but maybe the Dubs just know how to keep loose, like Barnes did on Monday when he challenged his Twitter followers in NBA2K:

Wouldn’t you know it (wink wink), some notable names answered the call and showed up at Barnes’ crib to throw down: Blake Anderson of Workaholics, professional gamer and Street Fighter world champion Snake_Eyez, Instagram promoter Baddie Winkle, and some dude who shows up at Warriors games with a gold suit on. They play in Street mode, and it looks like they all have a good time. The only guy who managed to take a game off Barnes was the aforementioned Gold Suit Guy, which comes as a shock.

Snake_Eyez, my man, we know 2K isn’t your wheelhouse, but it’s still embarrassing.
