Matt Barnes words on social media
Barnes said, “I was confused because I never said nothing about the dude. Obviously coming for us, you know you’re going to get attention. I think that’s what you were looking for. Bro, you’ve been made fun of since you came into the league for not living up to expectations. People laugh and joke about you all the time. Me? I didn’t do that. Never laughed, never joked, because I don’t talk about people like that. So I asked my team… did I miss something?…” While putting his views on this topic, Barnes also acknowledged that Kwame Brown should be upset with Michael Jordan more than any other player. Despite reaching out to Brown, Matt could not settle scores with him.
Matt Barnes added, “They said I tapped Jack’s knee when something was said. So if that’s what got you mad, me tapping somebody’s knee. You need a hug bro… Once I heard you talking sh*t, I DMed you like a man because I felt if it was something I really said, we could talk about it. But you chose to ignore that and take it to the internet”.
“So if you want to be mad at anybody, be mad at MJ for believing in you, picking you number one. I didn’t do that, I don’t know you, never talked about you.” A short rivalry has started between these former NBA players. Kwame had a rocky career being traded here and there for better players. But both the former players need to settle scores nd stop taking criticisms personally.
