it's a myth based on what? What proof is their that he isn't good with developing pg's? History would suggest otherwise. I'm not arguing that he is because I really don't know I just don't think it's fair to discredit someone's past achievements based on you simply not liking him.
Based on the way he has always handled young players, and the offense he runs which minimizes modern point guard strengths. You're not a point guard guru if you think pick and rolls cramp the floor and you run ISO heavy offenses.
Make no mistake, he was doing head scratching things with Kyrie as well. CP3 and Kyrie are the two examples people bring up to make out Byron to be the point guard whisperer, but they forget that both of those guys were can't miss prospects. Chris Paul is going to be in the hall of fame. A grandmother could have coached him. Kyrie Irving was the consensus number 1 pick after only one year of college.
Jason Kidd hated Byron's offense so much that he got him fired. And I'm not discrediting him because I don't like him, I'm discrediting him because he's an idiot that constantly flip flops, double takes, and talks out of his ass like he's some type of competent coach when he has one of the worst records in NBA history over an enormous sample size. Quite frankly, he wouldn't have a job if so many idiots didn't fall for the "knows what it means to be a Laker" nonsense that this front office threw out when they hired him. No one else gave him an interview.
He's miles worse than either of the last two coaches the Lakers had, who were skewered by fans and the media, but he gets a pass for some reason and it's infuriating.
