[Koreen] Moses Moody on Scottie Barnes: “My first time really playing against him, he did a close out. I’m shooting a 3. He had his hair going everywhere — that’s when he had his dreads and stuff. He’s coming out screaming. I missed the shot. I was like, ‘What’s wrong with this dude?’”Source Great stuff on Scottie, love that substitute teacher story. That does not mean Barnes is a clone, or amalgamation, of OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam, the Raptors’ other long, versatile forwards. Anunoby is stoic, while Siakam is happy-go-lucky with a penchant for frustration. Barnes is something else entirely. Moses Moody, who Golden State selected with the 14th pick in this past draft, went on to team up with Barnes (and top pick Cade Cunningham, among other future NBAers and top college players) and Montverde. His first experience with Barnes was as an opponent. “On the court, you just think he’s crazy,” Moody said. “My first time really playing against him, he did a close out, he was on the other team, I’m shooting a 3. He had his hair going everywhere — that’s when he had his dreads and stuff. He’s coming out screaming. I missed the shot. It’s crazy. I was like, ‘What’s wrong with this dude?’” Barnes is an unscrewed fire hydrant of emotion on the floor, to the point where you have to wonder how he can sustain himself for one game, never mind weeks or months at a time. He had trash-talking matches with his frenemy Josh Christopher, who wound up with the Houston Rockets in the draft and has teamed with Barnes at USA Basketball, that make for delightful YouTube viewing.

Katz had made these calls to various states regularly for years. He was a professional gambler, mostly placing bets on college basketball games, and he would conduct his gambling business on these pay phones. Well, wouldn’t you know it...interstate sports gambling was illegal, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, aka the FBI, was spying on him. Yep, they were recording his conversations after installing hidden listening devices attached to the outside of the phone booth. Shortly after recording these conversations the FBI arrested him at his apartment. They charged him with eight counts of knowingly transmitting wagering information by phone between U.S. states. But there was one big problem with the FBI’s plan- the agents had not secured a search warrant before spying on Katz. And the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that, unless law enforcement officers have probable cause, they need a warrant to spy on a suspect. Wait, do they? Well, perhaps the agents were not that worried since in the case Olmstead v. United States, the Supreme Court said that the Fourth Amendment did not apply to wiretapping phones to listen in on conversations. In fact, the Court determined that private phone conversations were basically no different from conversations overheard in a public area. Unless there was physical intrusion by law enforcement, it was ok, and this became known as the “trespass doctrine.” So sorry Katz. But wait just a second, the Olmstead case was 37 years prior. Times had changed. Katz was like, “I’m fightin’ this.” In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, he tried to prevent the FBI’s phone booth recordings from being used as evidence since, ya know, they didn’t have a warrant. The judge denied the request, and Katz was convicted based on them. With the help of a young lawyer named Harvey Schneider, Katz appealed his conviction to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, but it agreed with the lower court, so Katz appealed again to the Supreme Court, and they agreed to hear oral arguments on October 17, 1967. The biggest issue was, did Katz deserve privacy by stepping into the phone booth to make those calls? The Court said “yes.” On December 18, 1967, it announced it had sided with Katz. It was 7-1. So yep, the Court overruled the Olmstead case and therefore overruled the trespass doctrine. Justice Potter Stewart wrote the opinion. “The Fourth Amendment protects people, not places. What a person knowingly exposes to the public, even in his own home or office, is not a subject of Fourth Amendment protection. But what he seeks to preserve as private, even in an area accessible to the public, may be constitutionally protected.”
