*OK, it’s like this. NBA player Matt Barnes had a crappy year.
In an Instagram post (see it below) Barnes – who was traded from the LA Clippers to the Memphis Grizzlies – calls out a certain pop superstar who “lied on him” saying he’s got texts — and pics — to prove their relationship was real.

If you forgot (and we certainly understand if you did), Barnes basically bragged that he and Rihanna were a thing. Only problem was, she apparently didn’t get the memo and viciously went in on him via social media. Ouch!
The other person Barnes has got it in for is New York Knicks coach and former Lakers teammate Derek Fisher, who he’s calling a “snake” because he had the nerve to have a relationship with his ex, Gloria Govan then “snitched” to the NBA and police when he “got dealt with.”
By the way, the NBA “dealt” with Barnes for “dealing” with Fisher by giving him a 2-game suspension.
