Matt Barnes is now an NBA Champion following the Golden State Warriors’ win against the Cleveland Cavaliers on June 12, and the Twittersphere is going crazy. See why people are dragging him for getting a ring before other pros!
Fans are making fun of Matt Barnes, 37, for having an NBA Championship ring, because there are tons of legendary players who still don’t have one! “Zaza [Pachulia], Matt Barnes, & Javelle McGee all got a ring before you LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO,” one fan tweeted at Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul. “Matt Barnes finally got a ring after playing for every team in the league twice,” another joked. “Zaza Pachulia, Javale McGee & Matt Barnes have rings and Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, Allen Iverson don’t,” one person complained. That’s the way the cookie crumbles sometimes!
ICYMI, the Warriors beat the Cavaliers in the final game 129 to 120 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, with the Warriors’ Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant beating LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and the rest of the opposing team. Both teams played to the best of their abilities, but in the end, there can only be one winner. Congrats, Warriors!
But back to Matt. Many fans are also bringing up former Lakers point guard and New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher‘s DUI, because it turns out that the car Derek was driving during his arrest was registered to Matt, as TMZ reported. Derek was driving home with his girlfriend Gloria Govan…who used to be married to Matt. Oh, man! Check out more fan tweets about Matt’s ring below:
