The 2014-15 NBA season will be interesting to say the least for the Los Angeles Lakers with a lot of uncertainty surrounding the immediate future of the storied franchise.

Fortunately, despite all the uncertainty, the Lakers have a new head coach with something unique in comparison to the last few coaches in Los Angeles. Byron Scott brings a passion for the franchise to the table and intends to prove his dedication to the team by putting in the hours.

Scott said the following in an interview with Mike Trudell of Lakers.com about his passion for the team:

“If I could say by hours as a coach in all the other places I’ve been and I was putting in 10-12 hour days, this is going to be like 16-18 hours because I bleed purple and gold,” Scott said in an interview with Time Warner Cable SportsNet.

“This is an organization that I have so much pride in and so much love for that, again, it’s no disrespect to the other organizations that I coached ‘cus I gave them everything I have, but this one is special and I’m going to go overboard to make sure we get back to where we belong.”

The real question moving forward is whether Scott’s passion for the franchise will result in a bounce back season for the Lakers. The team is rebuilding with an aging Kobe Bryant leading the way making many believe the upcoming season could be more of the same without a playoff berth.

Even though the odds are against Scott and company to turn things around next season, the new head coach is confident the Lakers will get back to form sooner rather than later.
