Scott has run the Princeton Offense so far during coaching tenure. This is the same offense the Lakers team from 2012 tried to run during the beginning of the season, which led to former Laker head coach Mike Brown’s firing. None of the coaches who run the Princeton offensive system has shown yet that it could work in the NBA and lead to a championship, the only trophy the Lakers care about.
Also, many players have been known to quit on Scott during his coaching tenures, which led the Hornets and Nets to have no choice but to fire him during mid-season. With D’Antoni, role players seem to get along very well with him, while superstars don’t. In Scott’s case, the opposite can be said about his relationship with his players.
