Was Byron Scott the worst coach of the modern era?

He literally did nothing right. I can't think of anything other than obviously getting us draft picks.

Hindered development, made our players hate playing basketball, fought against the new style of play, fostered horrible relationships with basically everyone on the team, even handled media more poorly than anyone I can think of.

We sorta accepted Kobe being the blame of all these things, but man, these reports of shade coming from the players really show another side.

Kobe gets a pass because he gave us 20 years of pure entertainment along with 5 rings. I'm sure if it was Phil that did the same things that Byron did, he would have been given a pass as well. The problem is Byron was terrible the entire time. He wasn't even a great player.

I have to disagree with your last statement.  Byron was damn good when he played.  He was a 16-20 ppg played for like a 8 year stretch and was the starting SG for 3 of their rings.

I said great! He was a solid player but it's not the same as Magic, Kobe, or Shaq coaching. Fans wouldn't have jumped on him as quickly. I'd be willing to bet that a large number of young Laker fans don't know anything about Byron as a player. So many Laker greats, he is not one of them. He was apart of those three rings but his name is probably the least recognizable out of the starting 5. Well either him or Green.

Nick Young saying how Walton's offense is different than Byron's: "1st year he didn't want us to shoot 3's."

Yea those are good numbers but he is right he wasn't great but there is nothing wrong with that. It has nothing to do with him being the worst coach in franchise history.

I love Byron as a player. Not so much as a head coach. Then again, I said the same thing about Magic.
My point is, Byron will always be a Laker. And for that, I have no ill feelings towards him. I'm going to let bygones be bygones.

I liked Byron a lot more when he wasn't our coach. I always remembered him as a player but know when I hear Byron's name the first thing that pops in my mind is the terrible job he did the last two years.

Not old enough to remember showtime so my opinion about Byron (and Magic for that matter) are based on their post playing days.  Spoiler alert I don't much care for either of them.
