Reporting from New Orleans -- Byron Scott wanted it to be very clear: He is very happy being the head coach of the New Orleans Hornets.
But the idea of coaching the Lakers one day is something that has intrigued him.
He spent 11 years playing for the Lakers. He won three NBA titles with the Lakers during the 1980s. He grew up in Inglewood and attended Morningside High.
When he was asked Wednesday night if he would like to coach the Lakers, Scott laughed heartily.
"I'm going to be honest, yeah, I thought about it a lot," Scott said. "That's home for me. That's an organization that will be embedded in my heart for the rest of my life."
