LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lakers coach Byron Scott says he didn’t post a comment on his Instagram account apparently threatening to fight a fan.

Before the Lakers faced Dallas on Tuesday night, Scott said he doesn’t know who wrote the comment on the since-deleted post, which showed the coach working out at a boxing gym.

When a commenter told Scott to “keep (his) hands up,” someone logged in as Scott told the commenter to “Bring it … and show your face, don’t hide.”

The coach says he doesn’t know his Instagram password and rarely uses social media, instead relying on his assistant and other employees to run his accounts. He says he didn’t know about the Instagram kerfuffle until his assistant alerted him.

Scott says he “got a good kick out of it.”
