Matt Barnes Blast Doc Rivers, Calls Clippers Coach Dishonest

Former Clippers and Lakers forward Matt Barnes joined Jason Smith and Ryan Hollins on Monday morning, as the duo filled in for Dan Patrick in Los Angeles.

Barnes touched on several topics, including his thoughts on Isaiah Thomas' Lakers arrival and the Cavs reclaiming their role as the favorites in the East. 

The most explosive comments, however, came when discussing Doc Rivers — Barnes' former head coach with the Clippers.

"Doc was brought in to be God, and it just didn't work out that way," Barnes said. "Doc was paid a lot of money and given a lot of responsibility, and he was just never honest with guys. I think guys saw through that and didn't respect it."
