LOS ANGELES (FOX 11) - Matt Barnes is just coming off the NBA playoffs with the Memphis Grizzlies. He's a former Laker, Clipper and UCLA Bruin. He's also a dad to two boys.
He's faced some tough headlines in the media. But just this past Mother's Day, Barnes took to Instagram, taking the high road and wishing his ex-wife a happy Mother's Day.
Wanted to wish @glogovan a happy Mother's Day! Although we haven't always been able to see eye to eye we've been able to remember what's most important, & that's raising two beautiful happy intelligent little boys..
