Default Re: Laker News: Byron Scott Named New Lakers Head Coach **Welcome Back Byron Scott!!**

Scott is the only one out of the six known candidates -- along with Kurt Rambis, Alvin Gentry, Mike Dunleavy, Lionel Hollins and George Karl -- who had multiple interviews for the coaching vacancy created April 30 when Mike D'Antoni resigned.

Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak acknowledged the drawn-out coaching search and appreciated how Scott handled the wait.

"I just want to thank him for his patience the last six or seven weeks," Kupchak said. "I think it was clear, at least it was clear to us, that Byron was always our first choice."

the bigger issue will be about reasonable expectations for scott. already, the pressure will be tremendous, but reality is that a coach can only do so much when the team has limited overall talent.

people will need to be pragmatic. the hype in the papers, blogs and radio is just crazy...lol

Any pressure would come from the self entitled, demanding fans that think we need to be a contender every year. As long as this lakers team is made up of guys with 1-2 year deals, what are we to expect? They won't start truly rebuilding until Kobe retires, and at the same time we will not be able to contend either because of Kobe's contract. Bit of a tough situation.

All that aside, welcome Byron Scott! Lets see which new young players can develop this season.

Im not expecting them to beat the top 8 teams but Im hoping and praying that they will compete hard every game.
moving on, Im intrigued on whe will they get as assistant coaches and scouts etc.
Im hoping they will retain Mark Madsen. The guy is smart, hard working and can bring in fresh ideas. You then combine him with a veteran like Larry Drew who was decent at Atlanta and more importantly had ties with the Lakers before.
Worthy can help tutor Randle with his neat offensive moves and footwork.
Nash should tutor Lin in actually be a better PG and not just an attacking player.
Bring in a shooting guru like Chip Engelland, the guy is a really good shot doctor.
