Notorious Los Angeles reporter TJ Simers got under the skin of Lakers Coach Mike D’Antoni after the Lakers loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

It was the last straw for the Lakers coach after another disappointing loss — an LA Times reporter known for actively getting under the skin of his interview subjects — when Simers accused him of not practicing defense before the game.

“Hell yea we worked for a half hour on it. You’re starting to piss me off,” he said. “You’re starting to piss me off because you said something that’s not factually correct.”

Simers later apologized by not apologizing on Twitter:
