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!”
