Lakers Need Byron & Bryant To Create Showtime 2.0

Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 12.46.50 PMByron Scott‘s 15 year NBA career netted the shooting guard 3 titles during 11 years playing in the Showtime Lakers era, but those teams had Magic & Kareem – while today’s Lakers have an aging Kobe & Jeremy Lin.Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 12.55.27 PMScott’s sub-par coaching record does include being named the 2008 Coach Of The Year with the Chris Paul led Hornets & also took the Jason Kidd led Nets to their only finals appearances, back to back in 2002 & ’03.

Kobe has 2 years left with the Lakers & while the face of the franchise wasn’t consulted about hiring former coach Mike D’Antoni – who led them to a franchise worst 27-55 – Bryant got his man in Byron.Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 1.04.30 PM Kobe should leave LA to join Phil Jackson, Carmelo & the Knicks with a possible shot at winning two more titles in hallowed MSG – but if he did, Bryant might not get his rightful statue outside of Staples after he retires.
