Marcin Gortat says his clash with John Wall is over.

Of course, it probably helps that Gortat was traded to the Clippers during the offseason and Wall is still in Washington.

Gortat says he exchanged messages with Wall and there’s “no bad blood.”

Gortat says someone had to take the blame for last season, when the Wizards finished 43-39 and lost to Toronto in the opening round of the playoffs. Gortat says that because he was the oldest on the team he took responsibility.

He and Wall had exchanged words over the point guard’s seeming lack of defense that put the 6-foot-11 Gortat in the difficult position of guarding smaller, quicker players.

Gortat jokes that in December he’s going to take a photo when it’s 86 degrees in Los Angeles and there’s snow in the District. He also couldn’t resist pointing out the Clippers training camp is in Hawaii.
