Matt Barnes is in his feelings this New Year's Day. He had a tumultuous 2015 and he wants you to know what it REALLY entailed. From calling out Derek Fisher -- boldly -- to giving his side of the Rihanna story, the Grizzlies baller is holding nothing back in 2016. Check out what he had to say inside...
Chile...Matt Barnes had some things to get off his chest in this New Year. As he deals with his 2 game suspension after his fight with ex teammate turned coach Derek Fisher, the NBA baller isn't sitting by silently anymore.
He took to social media today to start firing off shots, and we're here for each and every one. He said about losing the women in his life and being lied on by a pop star (remember when he said he and Rihanna were kinda talking and she basically said "Matt who?"):
Thank God For 2016!
2015 hands down was the worst year of my life! * *Lost the women I loved,the mother of my kids, my Dogg.. I had to walk away from the only thing I've wanted, MY OWN FAMILY! "They call that karma" *To being traded away from a team & city I love! "They call that the business" *Lied on by a pop star
Who's lucky I stuck to the script & didn't expose her lien ass
Funny thing about texts & pics is they DONT LIE! "I Guess" "They call that getting played"
Bloop! Then he went in about the Derek Fisher drama among Derek, himself, and ex wife Gloria Govan saying:
*Last BUT NOT LEAST... Being stuck in the "triangle offense" w my ex & snitch, I mean former teammate & friend.. Who went behind my back, messed w my ex, got caught, got dealt w for being a snake, then ran & told the Police & NBA.. Instead of taken that ass whoopin like a man & kept it moving....!
WHERE THEY DO THAT AT?
Guess cause I didn't SNITCH, I get a 2 game suspension by the league "They call that LIFE"
WHEN IT RAINED, IT POURED in 15
All this played out like a bad reality show, a nightmare, for your amusement & entertainment! For you to critique, make fun of, crack jokes & laugh about.. "What I shoulda did" or what "y'all would have done" Hmmmm... I say all this not for sympathy, because I had a hand in all the bad $h!t that happened.. I was never perfect in my relationship, I didn't see eye to eye w my head coach.. I was warned SEVERAL times about ole girl & I introduced love ones to people who I "thought were FRIENDS"... Lesson Learned!!
Did he just call his ex wife "ol girl?" Damn. He ended on a semi-positive note saying:
This is for all of you who had a F@#%ed up year... To let you know I'm right there w you, We In this together! Everyone has ups & downs in this game called LIFE... It gets better.... "I think" Hahaa nah it does, trust me! --- -Remember God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers!!!
-Stay positive, hold ya head, tighten your circle & stick to your instincts..
-It's not about how many times you fall down, it's about how many times you get up!
Heres to freeing your hands of all the bullshit of 2015 & preparing for the blessing God has in store for us all in 2016!
HAPPY NEW YEAR,
Tell us why you mad then, Matt. Cheers to a better 2016.
