NBA player turned podcaster Matt Barnes was among those who expressed outrage that Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka was getting a year suspension for a consensual affair.
However, last night a Boston insider told Barnes the whole story and he Barnes has retracted those statements and is now praying for all involved.
Matt Barnes on the situation with ime. He was told what happened and it sounds like it’s pretty bad. pic.twitter.com/PnMZzR2WsW— Ant ☘️🏀 (@GangCeltics) September 23, 2022
"I clearly have to say that last night without knowing all the facts I spoke on Ime Udoke's defense and after finding out the facts after I spoke I erased what I posted because this situation in Boston is deep. It's messy. It's 100 times uglier than any of us thought. That's why I erased what I said. Some things happened that I can not condone I can not back. It's not my place to tell you what happened. If it ends up coming out it ends up coming out. That was the reason I erased my post. After I posted it I got a call from somone with the details. Man, this sh*t is deep ... Praying for everybody involved. I hope that everyone gets throught this."
Matt Barnes notoriously fought Derek Fisher for allegedly sleeping with his wife Gloria Govan. So that could be why he's so suddenly turned on Udoka.
