Matt Barnes Apologizes for Ejection and Postgame Rant

Having calmed down from his tussle with Serge Ibaka and profane venting on Twitter last night, Matt Barnes issued a heartfelt apology today in a series of tweets: “I’d like to take a second to apologize to the #LACorganization, my #Teammates & #CoachingStaff & the #ClipFans.. For my actions … Not only on the court, but off.. I was completely wrong for pushing Ibaka & then for what I tweeted following the altercation … I’ve been doing this for to long to let my emotions get the best of me.. My poor choice of words & timing do not reflect Who or what I am about … It was very selfish on my part to make this situation about me instead of my teammates that fought their Hearts out & earned a big win against a tough okc team … Now I could have took the easy way out & said, ‘My twitter was hacked’ … But that’s not what I’m about, I except full responsibility for all my inappropriate action last night & I am truly sorry!”

    Not a fan of Matt Barnes and his attitude in general but I’ll give him credit for standing up for his teammate and then manning up and accepting responsibility for his actions

    you should never stand up for Blake Griffin, the guy’s always looking for the flop. Matt should know better.

    Matt Barnes will get tough with the Kobe’s and Ibaka’s of the world but never with the Artest, K. Mart, David West type players of the world. He’s 100% fake tough guy all the way.

    Yeah, probably too intelligent. And then there’s Westbrook learning about weightclass on the fly.

    Do “teammates” and “coaching staff” really need to be hashtagged? I mean, seriously.

    A tweet without typos and grammatical errors. That’s a smart guy who just has short temper and wants to be one of the guys. Uh huh.

  • Sean Superstar Juan

    I have never heard Matt Barnes and intelligent mentioned in the same sentence.

  • what

    Why the f*ck is any famous person on twitter? Clooney was talking about this in that interview with Esquire. One drunken/emotional/stupid moment and you say something that gets you in all kinds of sh*t.

    Shut the f*ck up.
