There’s no denying that 2015 was a pretty rough year for NBA player Matt Barnes.
It was recently reported that the Memphis Grizzlies baller had been suspended from his teams upcoming two games for laying hands on his former teammate, Derek Fisher, after he caught the New York Knicks coach in the house with his estranged wife Gloria Govan.
Well only one day into the New Year, Matt is letting the world know that he is ready to put all the drama behind him….but not without telling it like it is first!
Matt took to his Instagram to post this very open, honest, and reflective New Years post.
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” *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!! 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, LOVE #THEBADGUY
Was he referring to Rihanna as that “lying pop star”…….?!
There’s no way you could hate on a man when he’s down. We wish Matt Barnes all the best in love, peace, success, and prosperity in 2016.
And Rih Rih, Derek, and Gloria, if what Matt is saying is true……y’all got to do people much better in 2016.
