Metta World Peace

Don't Feel Bad for

Fired Lakers Coach Mike Brown

Los Angeles Lakers superstar Metta World Peace tells TMZ ... he's not shedding any tears for his ex-coach Mike Brown ... 'cause even though he got fired, dude made out like a bandit.

MWP was leaving his birthday party at MyStudio nightclub in L.A. this weekend ... when we asked about the Lakers decision to part ways with Brown after only 5 games.

"That's a nice check man ... he got $11 million ... great career, still young ... he's gonna have more jobs and more opportunities to coach," World Peace told us.

He added, "I played for him for years in Indiana ... so Mike Brown, he's dope ... shout out to Mike Brown."

We also asked if Kobe Bryant had anything to do with Brown's termination -- but MWP was adamant he did NOT.

FYI -- the Lake Show has officially replaced Brown with Mike D'Antoni ... not Phil Jackson.

I feel bad for someone that thinks it's logical to go through life named "Metta World Peace".

How many careers offer an $11 mil severance pay? I want to be a coach long enough to suck so I get fired and get $11 mil. What is wrong with this picture when the average Joe gets laid off (not fired) and do not get severance pay; only unemployment.
