Matt Barnes on relationship: Be very careful of who you choose. Life in general is tough. With social media, it makes it harder. My parents fought to keep their marriage together. Today, it's too convenient to give up. You have to stay grounded. You have to look at the big picture. Find someone who loves you for you. The way the world works now, you have to be open to over time people change. If it comes to an end, let's try to be responsible and civil, especially when there are kids involved.

Matt Barnes on cannabis: The most important part about cannabis is education, you have to understand and educate yourself about it. Hopefully, down the line, we'll be able to do treatments for opioid-dependent patients into substituting cbd alternative in their lives.

Matt Barnes on reality tv: I got to open my eyes to television when my ex-wife was in a reality tv show. Today's world, people are chasing lies and fake rainbows, leprechauns.... I just want to entertain people, tell true stories about life. You may end up looking nice but let me tell you about how it started. I want to tell more bios, true stories about people who have come from nothing and have been able to captivate people's minds and do positive things about that.

Matt Barnes on life: To be successful, you have to fail. Success won't taste so good if it wasn't for the failure. You don't want to change the potholes you hit and the mistakes you made because hopefully you'll learn from that and leave it behind.
