Matt Barnes doesn’t tolerate disrespect, even if it’s not directed at him.
It all started from a clip on ‘First Things First’ when Nick Wright was criticizing the Warriors for trading for Andrew Wiggins, who he deems as being a bad basketball player.
“Andrew Wiggins is a bad basketball player. He’s owed $95M over the next 3 years, starting next year. It’s unspeakable the Warriors did this. … It’s over for them now. We will never see Steph in another NBA Finals again. Ever.”
That was enough to get Matt Barnes to log onto Twitter and fire back at Wright.
“You’re an analyst, remember that!U were never good enough 2play sports so U have to talk about http://it.How U gonna call a man who’s a career 20pt scorer a bad player”
“Next time U wanna disrespect another proathlete remember U were never shit,so you get paid 2talk shit”
That led to a back and forth between the two with several tweets that ultimately had Barnes seemingly threatening Wright at the end.
