In his exit interview, Metta World Peace was asked about coach Mike Brown.
Compared to Phil Jackson, he said, it was a "drastic change."
But then World Peace went to some trouble, apparently to make clear he was not blaming his coach for the Lakers' playoff departure.
"Mike wasn't out there guarding Kevin [Durant]," he explains. "That was me. Kevin scored on me. Mike didn't miss that 3-point shot. I missed it. Mike didn't come into camp out of shape."
Then he paused.
"Wait ... he did come in out of shape. Mike is a fat ass."
