Audio: Magic Guard Matt Barnes Is Not Pleased With The “Basketball Wives”

Five minutes into watching the first episode of the VH1 Reality Show “Basketball Wives” (or “Widows,” if you believe Chris Douglas Roberts) I tweeted this:

“Mark The Tweet: The first unintentional causality of this show will be Matt Barnes”

They don’t call me “Robstadamous” for nothing.

Barnes appeared on the Jim Rome show (Littal Fact: I am a long time “Clone”) and appeared less than pleased when Rome asked him about the show.  You can hear the audio below.

Obviously he and his fiancee’ Gloria Govan were duped into believing the show was going to be positive or something.  I guess they have never seen Flavor of Love or whatever Tila Tequila was doing on there.

If it’s a VH1 reality show it’s probably going to be a train wreck, and the reason is simple: train wrecks get good ratings.  From what I can gather, the ratings for “Basketball Wives” are excellent so that should tell you that a whole Amtrak station has collapsed.

I haven’t watched since episode one, even though I heard Eric Williams (who is shockingly really married to one of these ladies) eats a mean rib and tells his wife if she doesn’t like his lifestyle to beat it (Jocks & Stiletto Jill has a nice recap of that you watch and read here).

Matt Barnes should have known better and even if he didn’t, Dwight Howard should have pulled him aside and said:


I am pretty sure Barnes is upset because a lot of his groupies have popped up and are trying to break up his relationship, but he should have known that if his lady was going to go on TV and say that he doesn’t cheat (when we all know 99.8% of athletes cheat) there would be repercussions from that.

Once again, in the immortal words of Jay Z:


Just for the hell of it, here’s Royce dancing.

  • I understand why he is disgusted with the show-it is basically materialistic and lacks any heart. The fact that almost every line uttered has to do with a relationship that was once, or still is, one of a personal, intimate nature makes it skeezy. Also, it's So obvious Shaunie O'neal is pimping these chicks-she doesn't even appear on the show. She just lets them spin their lives into mess.

    However, I wonder if he ever gets disgusted by the lack of morals displayed in his own environment? I understand him not wanting to have any part of that discussion on the show, but I wonder if he also gets disgusted by that whole scene the women are consistently talking about? Or maybe he just thinks groupies come with the territory and what's done in the dark is best left there.

  • Can I submit your post to my wordpress weblog? I'll add a backlink to your forum. That’s one actually great post.

  • Thank you for sharing superb informations. Your web-site is so cool. I’m impressed by the details that you have on this blog. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject. Bookmarked this web page, will come back for more articles. You, my pal, ROCK! I found simply the info I already searched everywhere and simply couldn’t come across. What an ideal website.

  • He liked the opening! I hope that the fantasy is to get into much more of a nerd / loser of the Large Bang. He cherished all the jokes, but most returned to Stewart and Leonard at the starting and end, and Brent Spiner. I don’t forget all the comforts, and I was forced to compromise to get good rates for some interesting things. I always liked to call straight to the people, Sheldon Leonard, and funny, this episode felt a little “how to start a season like this.
