The Memphis Grizzlies swingman hopped on Instagram on New Year’s Eve to take on “the worst year of my life,” again detailing his frustrations with former teammate and current New York Knick coach Derek Fisher’s “snitch” work in the wake of their altercation surrounding Fisher’s relationship with Barnes’ estranged wife, while apparently ripping pop star Rihanna for denying the two ever had a relationship of their own.

Here’s the gem:

Thank God For 2016! 2015 hands down was the worst year of my life! * *Lost the women I loved,the mother of my kids, my Dogg.. I had to walk away from the only thing I've wanted, MY OWN FAMILY! "They call that karma" *To being traded away from a team & city I love! "They call that the business" *Lied on by a pop star Who's lucky I stuck to the script & didn't expose her lien ass Funny thing about texts & pics is they DONT LIE! "I Guess" "They call that getting played" *Last BUT NOT LEAST... Being stuck in the "triangle offense" w my ex & snitch, I mean former teammate & friend.. Who went behind my back, messed w my ex, got caught, got dealt w for being a snake, then ran & told the Police & NBA.. Instead of taken that ass whoopin like a man & kept it moving....! WHERE THEY DO THAT AT? Guess cause I didn't SNITCH, I get a 2 game suspension by the league "They call that LIFE"

WHEN IT RAINED, IT POURED in 15 All this played out like a bad reality show, a nightmare, for your amusement & entertainment! For you to critique, make fun of, crack jokes & laugh about.. "What I shoulda did" or what "y'all would have done" Hmmmm... I say all this not for sympathy, because I had a hand in all the bad $h!t that happened.. I was never perfect in my relationship, I didn't see eye to eye w my head coach.. I was warned SEVERAL times about ole girl & I introduced love ones to people who I "thought were FRIENDS"... Lesson Learned!! This is for all of you who had a F@#%ed up year... To let you know I'm right there w you, We In this together! Everyone has ups & downs in this game called LIFE... It gets better.... "I think" Hahaa nah it does, trust me! --- -Remember God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers!!! -Stay positive, hold ya head, tighten your circle & stick to your instincts.. -It's not about how many times you fall down, it's about how many times you get up!

Heres to freeing your hands of all the bullshit of 2015 & preparing for the blessing God has in store for us all in 2016! HAPPY NEW YEAR, LOVE #THEBADGUY

Barnes, who averages 8.6 points and five rebounds for the Grizzlies, was suspended two games for his fight with Fisher. Considering his history, he’s lucky he only got that many for allegedly stalking down an estranged wife and fighting with an NBA coach.
