Byron Scott Is The Perfect Coach For Los Angeles Lakers
I think we can all agree that the Los Angeles Lakers have lost their luster as the glamour team in the NBA. Instead of Lakers fans watching Kobe Bryant dominate, they watched Bryant sit on the bench in a suit. Instead of watching the Lakers dominate, they watched their team become the doormats of the NBA.
But now that Bryon Scott has made it official that he will be the new head coach of the franchise that made him a star in the 80′s, he will be able to bring back some of that Hollywood luster that seemed all but lost last season. In coming back to the Lakers, Scott will also be trying to perform a resurrection of his own. After having incredible success with the then New Jersey Nets, Scott’s other coaching destinations have led to rumors that he cannot be a good NBA coach without a star player.
Scott will be looking to change that image, but in all honesty, he will be having a hard time with this version of the Lakers. Yes, on paper they are better than last season, but it remains to be seen how all of the pieces will fit together. Can Carlos Boozer become a double-double threat again? Can Jeremy Lin be a top-tier point guard? How much do Steve Nash and Bryant have left in their respective tanks? Can he get Nick Young under control? How will he fit in Julius Randall?
These are the questions that Scott is going to have to figure out if he has any chance of not only bringing the Lakers back from the dead, but his own coaching career back from near death as well. But Scott is up to the challenge, and in reality, there is no other man better suited for the job.
