Lakers News: Byron Scott Still Senses Support From Front Office
Byron Scott: Kobe Bryant, Metta World Peace Are Lakers Best Defenders
Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Heading into the 2015-16 NBA season, there was optimism for the Los Angeles Lakers with a nice blend of veterans to go along with their young core. Unfortunately, the Lakers are currently 2-12 and will play nine of their next 10 games on the road.

While the attention has been on Kobe Bryant’s poor play, head coach Byron Scott has received criticism for how he has handled D’Angelo Russell’s minutes. Despite playing more minutes recently, Scott has not played Russell in fourth quarters regardless of the score.

While Scott will continue to receive criticism from the media and fan base, he still senses support from the front office according to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News:

“We still understand that this is a process,” Scott said. “We have a lot of young guys on this team that we feel will be very good players. But it’s not going to happen in a month. It’s going to take some time. It might take a year or two.”

Although the Lakers were not expected to make the playoffs this season, there was an assumption they would improve from their worst win percentage in franchise history. With D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson establishing the young core, it was expected they would play major minutes in hopes of speeding up the rebuilding process.

With Scott still sensing support from the front office, it will be interesting to see if he makes any adjustments. While Scott has not considered reducing Kobe’s minutes or role through 14 games, he has mentioned making some rotation changes if he did not like the effort following the game against the Golden State Warriors.

Your b!ch a$$ ain’t staying “a year or two”. FOH

  • Front Office should of asked about your rotation. Why Bass is playing Center as if he’s as good as Draymond Green. Why Your not limiting Kobe shots, or setting up plays where Kobe will get the ball deep in the paint. or why you allow Lou Will to take whatever shot he wants as if he’s Kobe wearing #8? and alot more questions. but it seems as if the Front Office does not have a clue themselves. smh its going to be a looong season

  • FUN FACT: If you look at the schedule, you’ll notice that the Lakers
    have a weird pattern of W’s and L’s. They lose 4 and then win 1. We’re
    on a 4 game losing streak,. Will they get the W against Portland? My
    bet: heck naw but it’d be funny.

    EDIT: your filter really pisses me off, LN. I can’t even write *HE LL* (in one piece). Are you serious?

  • The FO is blind if they cant see the coaching mistakes BS is making. Everyone else in the league can. I’m mean what more has to happen to wake the FO up.

  • Byron has some nerve.
    WoW.
    BS check the bottoms of your shoes for eggshells.

  • The ball is kept in constant motion through passing until either a mismatch allows a player to cut to the basket or a player without the ball cuts toward the unoccupied area under and around the basket, and is passed the ball for a layup The offense is often a very slow developing one, relying on a high number of passes.

    Against the Warriors the Lakers had 80 half court possessions
    0 pass: 7 times
    1 pass: 19 times
    2 pass: 24 times
    3 pass: 14 times
    4 pass: 8 times
    5 pass: 5 times
    6 pass: 1 time

    Now I’m no analytics genius, but these figures seem contrary to the princeton offense, and contrary to team basketball in general. Obviously it doesn’t help when the majority of the roster are trigger happy ISO gunners, but isn’t a coach’s job to reign them in?
    With Kobe: 2.26 passes per possession
    With Lou/Clarkson/N Young : 1.43 passes per possession
    Without Kobe: 2.08 passes per possession
    Without Kobe and Lou: 3.0 passes per possession

  • Makes no sense to fire him now. As long as he still has the team, they should let him finish out the season.

    In terms of the team’s long-term stability, it might even be worth it to let him finish out his contract next season and then not exercise the team option. Not a vote of confidence in Scott, mind you, but a lack of confidence in the recent coaching carousel.

  • A year or two from now if BS still coaches , we’d be worse than Philly unless we plan to collect top picks too. Did I hear someone stepping down after 3yrs? Jeannie its time to clean house , top to bottom

  • bass should increase trade value to be trade bait(would’ve been better at the 4 but mwp/nance jr will lose PT so…)
    Byron aint good at X and O
    Lou is the 6th man and scott said he wants lou to defend his throne

  • byron used to loath rookies smh should of gone with a better suited coach in 2014

  • Scott can’t do anything. Nobody wants to tell KoMe to sit. The whole organization is being held hostage, and it’s their own fault. But hey, there’s always next year.

  • The only way that the Lakers change the way if they decide fire Byron Scot otherwise not future for the young players.
