Yea seriously was a BAD move. I won't be surprised if Doc starts shopping him tomorrow. Can't have a guy paid to be our enforcer having that mentality. Throwing teammates under the bus like that.

He took it down because it was a dumb tweet(too easy to misinterpret) in general but there is no way he was serious. It was a joke but judging by the reactions I have seen in this thread it was clearly not well received so obviously he would take it down.

I am basing my opinion on Matt Barne's personality.... I think its a really blatant joke. If you think he would be stupid enough to say something like that seriously I dunno what to say especially when he already said he was fine with being an enforcer.

People here make a huge deal out of nothing. Its understandable if its Jamal making lots of negative tweets but one tweet from Barnes and people go ballistic.... I don't have any concrete proof of course but I don't think he is serious at all. Other people are free to think otherwise. It wasn't smart I will give you that. He should have made it clearer that he was joking or said nothing.

He prefaced it by saying his teammates are like his family. He was well aware of what he tweeted and out of anger or not, it had truth behind it.

Hope he doesn't get suspended for it.

The only thing is, if there were 5 players in the league dumb enough to seriously tweet something like that I would put Matt Barnes on the list. He has done some pretty stupid stuff on the court and loses his cool quite often.

Hope he was joking for his sake but either way not a wise decision.

Yeah, when I saw that tweet I thought NO WAY does he actually means that. He's being sarcastic, and of course the media runs with it because of the words he used. It was a stupid move to tweet that during the game, but there is no doubt he'll continue to have his teammates' back.

Practically the entire team was at his sons' birthday a few days ago. They're like family to him. This ain't the last time Matt is going to get into a scrap for the Clippers this season. That's his nature.

That tweet grossed me out. I don't care if it was sarcastic or not. It's been like 1 week since the debacle with the Miami Dolphins. Use your f*cking head Matt.

And nobody asked him to stand up for Blake. He was just itching to let out some anger. That's on you

Repped High Quality Post

I think he meant what he said, but regrets it. I can relate to him. Back in the day I used to get in a lot of fights standing up for friends. And almost every time I realized I was the only one fighting...because my friends were not really "fighters". One day I vowed not to do that anymore. I am pretty sure Blake is not a fighter. It is not in his nature. Its natural for Barnes to feel almost betrayed that he stood up to ibaka because of blake but probably expected blake to stand up for himself more than he did. If they both got ejected he would never have tweeted that. I wouldn't worry about barnes though.. Like i said, its in his nature and when we really need some enforcement, he will be more than happy to deliver!

Matt Barnes is an African American, but we Black folk do need to re-frame from saying that word, don't mind the Tweet about getting tired of losing money and sticking up for his team mates, he didn't mean it, it's Matt Freaking Barnes, he does and say's stuff like that. But he should have kept it to himself, the world is to sensitive for that Tweet.

So Matt would've been happy if Blake was ejected with him, then most likely lose the game? This wouldn't make sense. Just so I can get a good nights rest, I'll assume Matt Barnes is smarter than that.

He wouldn't have been happy but about that but at the same time he wouldn't have been so pissed about the ejection. I don't think he wants to feel like its his job to be the enforcer and take the hit for the team. I think he knows he brings other things to the table.

Seriously, that tweet, truer words (sans the vulgar words) have never been said by someone who realizes that it's hurting his wallet. How is that a joke or sarcasm when it seems more like he's tired of losing money when he gets paid little compared to the guys he "defending"?

Also, Matt doesn't BS around, he tells it like it is on twitter. he wears his emotions on his sleeve, on and off the court. saying it was a joke insults Matt's intelligence.
