Matt Barnes Defends Shabazz Muhammad in Twitter Rant

Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

Earlier today we told you how Shabazz Muhammad was sent home from the NBA rookie transition program for having a girl in his room. Well Matt Barnes didn’t quite agree with that:

I think @phenom15balla gettn kicked out of #NBARTP is BS. He’s a grown A$$ man, if he wants to hv a woman n his rm that’s his business(cont)

Then the media gets ahold of the story & blows it outa proportion, like they always do. Now his gotta bad wrap b4 he’s ever played a(cont)

Game.. Starting behind the 8 ball already! I guess I’m tryn to say there are bigger issues to deal with, then whether or not a grown(cont)

Man has a woman In his room.. @phenom15balla keep ur head up boy & keep working hard, this will blow over

Yeah it wasn’t the worst thing in the world that Shabazz did but the rules are the rules. If you break the simple ones (or get caught) then I don’t have faith in you on the big stuff. Matt Barnes gets more attention for his comments to the media these days than his play so I’m not sure why he took a shot at the media. If it wasn’t for the meda, he wouldn’t be as relevant right now.
