EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Time Warner Cable SportsNet is excited to announce that Lakers legend Byron Scott and Lakers favorite Luke Walton have joined the network’s on-air team. The two have 39 years of combined NBA experience and five Lakers NBA Championship rings and Walton played in the NBA as recently as last season. Scott and Walton join former Lakers James Worthy and Robert Horry to give Time Warner Cable SportsNet a total of 15 NBA Championships and members of Lakers teams from the past four decades.

 

Scott and Walton will cover the Lakers for Time Warner Cable SportsNet, contributing to the network’s award-winning studio programming including franchise shows “#LakeShow,” “Access SportsNet,” the “Access SportsNet: Lakers” pre-and post-game shows and more. Scott will first appear on Time Warner Cable SportsNet on Sunday, October 6 on the network’s coverage of the Lakers’ second preseason game and Walton will first report from the Time Warner Cable SportsNet studio on Tuesday, October 8 before the Lakers exhibition game against Denver.

“The addition of Byron Scott and Luke Walton to our on-air team allows Time Warner Cable SportsNet to give fans incredible perspective on the Los Angeles Lakers. Byron is an experienced and respected NBA veteran and Luke is fresh off of an accomplished NBA career,” said Larry Meyers, Vice President, Content and Executive Producer, Time Warner Cable Sports Regional Networks. “We have worked hard to assemble an extremely experienced and relevant team of Lakers analysts as we head into our second season of Lakers basketball on Time Warner Cable SportsNet.”

 

Scott has more than 28 years of NBA experience and played for the Los Angeles Lakers for 10 seasons during the Showtime era, winning three NBA Championships. He spent 14 seasons as a player, reaching the playoffs 13 times, and also suited up for the Indiana Pacers and Vancouver Grizzlies. After his playing career, Scott served as the Head Coach of the New Jersey Nets, New Orleans Hornets and Cleveland Cavaliers and was named the NBA Coach of the Year while with the Hornets in 2007-8. He also has served as an analyst for ABC and ESPN’s NBA coverage. Scott is originally from Inglewood, California and his non-profit organization, The Byron Scott Children’s Fund, raises money for children’s charities.

 

“I’m excited to be joining the Time Warner Cable SportsNet team,” said Scott. “It’s going to be a great experience, and I look forward to having a lot of fun with my old teammate James Worthy and the rest of the Time Warner Cable SportsNet team. It’s going to be an interesting season for the Lakers, and I think they will surprise a lot of people.”

Walton was drafted by the Lakers in 2003 and spent nine seasons in Los Angeles, winning two championships. He finished the 2012-13 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Fresh off of his playing career, he is the most recently-active NBA player to be employed by a TV network. Walton and his father, NBA Hall of Famer Bill Walton, are the first father and son duo to win multiple NBA championships. He is originally from San Diego and resides in Los Angeles. 

 

“I am excited to be joining the Time Warner Cable SportsNet team,” said Luke Walton.  Having won two championships with the Lakers, I know how important the team is to this community.  I look forward to again being a part of Lakers basketball and can’t wait to work alongside Hall of Famer James Worthy, Byron Scott and the rest of the Time Warner Cable SportsNet team.”

You want the Princeton again?  Because that's what Scott would teach.

Luke Walton was one of the best 12th men in basketball history.  I defy anyone to tell me who might be a better 12th man.

Luke was an awesome passer and facilitator in the triangle and he was our 2nd best player till Gasol got there and Bynum came into his own.

Let THAT sink in for a moment...

Let it sink in that Luke Walton was the 2nd best player on the Lakers at one point in time and Kobe got that team to the playoffs 2 out of 3 years.

TWC needs to hire more former Lakers who had success with the Lakers and who were fan favorites.

He used to on Fox Sports West back in the day for a little while no?

Wouldn't surprise me if Luke is the backup for the 5th best commentator on TWC.


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health, 2. High Draft Pick!, 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Nope), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Still waiting, wow)

All the more reason to give him his own show.

Better yet, make him do the play-by-plays.
