Matt Barnes had a moment with his phone and now his pockets will be lighter because of it. Yesterday we showed you the profane tweet he sent out after being ejected from his Clippers game against the Thunder. He lost his cool in the locker room and vented on twitter and basically called his teammates soft, and I am being polite with the way I worded it. He deleted it quickly but the damage was done. Now he will have $25,000 worth of damage done to his bank account. That is a lot of money for a few seconds of frustration on twitter. My opinion is the NBA should not be able to fine players for what they say on twitter, as that is their private space, even though it is public. Hit the jump to see his attempt at an apology.
