Along with thousands of fans, some Sacramento Kings players watched Kanye West walk out of a concert at their Golden 1 Center home Saturday night.
After just two songs and about 30 minutes into his concert, with about half that time spent on an extended, stream-of-conscious styled rant, the hip-hop star abruptly pulled the plug.
Matt Barnes may have been the only person at Golden 1 who was satisfied with the truncated performance. Could it be because he can easily afford the $250 tickets since he’s making more than $6 million this year playing for the Kings?

Barnes tweeted “Kanye is certified crazy!! But I f--- w it ... Two songs & the shows over!!”
To which some people took exception.
On Barnes’ Instagram account before the concert, he apparently referenced his famous 90-plus-miles drive to fight Derek Fisher for dating his ex-wife.
