Bernie bickerstaff would've done a better job.

 

Isn't he still 4-0 as interim HC?

 

No matter the coach ……kobe will still jack up shots and not get others involved …..so the coach isn't the problem

4-1 if not mistaken. He's obviously not a top tier coach but very fundamentalist.

Better than Byron's record. I'm impressed.

The coach is the problem. When people give Kobe the ball when he is at the 3 point line when there is 8 seconds left what do think he is going to do. Nobody moves and everybody is stuck at the 3 point line. Russ doesn't even get to pick and roll. He just stands there at the 3 point line. This is why I didn't want Russell to start in the lineup because I had feeling he was just going to walk the ball up to the court and then just give it Kobe. Byron Scott has no structure. For a defensive minded coach, his defense is worse than D'antonis. We should call him Byrn Sctt because he has no offense.

Byron is reducing practice load after players complaints. 

 

 

This is just the beginning. Next might be players  complaining about being called out ( soft , man up) or about the offense. But Kudos to Byron, at least he wasnt stubborn.

 

 

 

2 scenarios :

 

 

Lakers end the season terribly , high % Byron gets canned but its on the expense of the players. ( opportunity cost)

 

Lakers end the season good. Most likely Byron stays. I dont trust the FO to make the right decision. They'll be influenced by the record or players progress and give BS a second chance. Thats if they dont trust him blindly by then.

 

 

Pick your poison ...

They are probably getting sick of him always saying they are giving no effort. They are giving effort they just are put into bad positions all the time and are always in a mismatch. Also I agree with the players, maybe doing 4 hour practices with nothing but conditioning is a bad idea. Maybe focus on some strategy or skill development.

Lol. Its like asking an elementary math teacher to teach students in University. Of course he has nothing to offer but to give them multiplication table practice.

So do you think Byron has done a good job with this team? Do you trust in him as a coach moving foward

He would never coach here and I think he has been out of the game to long. I'd prefer an assistant who hasn't been a head coach yet. Let's get new blood and not just get a another failed head coach hoping he will get it together.

Enough of retreads. Doubt JVG , who hasnt coached >6years, would tolerate or handle the youngsters properly. I'd give Kevin Ollie a chance if he ever considers the Lakers.

I agree I would like to get a young coach. No more of these middle of the road retreads

Walton, Fizdale, Messina, Ollie, someone like that please.

 

Byron has the most losses of any coach ever that has coached at least 1,000 games
