Matt Barnes Apologizes for Ejection and Postgame Rant

by November 14, 2013

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!”
