NBA "Bad Boy" Matt Barnes | Altruism, Authenticity, and Accolades

In this episode I sit down with basketball superstar Matt Barnes to discuss learning from adversity, dealing with people's expectations, and most importantly—family. Matt talks about how he stays grounded in life and in relationships when he could be distracted by fame and riches. In our discussion he also shares his childhood struggles, how he remains authentic, and he explains why he started the foundation: "Athletes vs Cancer." Matt also started a weekly podcast series with Stephen Jackson called "ALL THE SMOKE," which exposes the unfiltered perspectives of other NBA stars. Overall, we discuss how Matt Barnes seeks altruism and authenticity while carrying the accolades basketball has given him. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Barnes https://athletesvscancer.com/ https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/all-the-smoke/id1483638752
