Lakers beat writer for the Los Angeles Times. Tweets aren't written by an image consultant, PR guru or handler. Wouldn't mind having a handler, though.
Scott: "I don’t think L.A. has gone to the Clippers yet. This is still a Lakers town. Period. But does it make for a great rivalry? Yes."
Scott can't rule out starting Randle at some pt: "I think the sky’s the limit. To get him at seven was a steal. The kid was probably Top 3."
D'Antoni embrached a return to Showtime when he was hired. Not so for Byron Scott. "We can’t play that way. We don’t have a Magic Johnson."
Scott: "When you lose, you shouldn’t be sitting in the locker room having a good time. It should hurt. We’ve got to get back to winning."
Scott: "The only thing I regret is Dr. Buss isn’t here today. He’s somebody that showed a lot of love + confidence in me back in the day.”
News conference turns into a toast. Magic commandeers the mic, saying he hopes Scott can get team back to the "Laker brand of basketball."
Heavy hitters starting to show up for the Byron Scott news conference: Magic, Kareem, Jamaal Wilkes.
Johnny Davis might also be an assistant coach. Davis would be a holdover from D'Antoni's staff. He has one more year on his contract.
Byron Scott's staff taking shape soon. Possibilities: Paul Pressey, Mark Madsen and...Robert Horry. Lakers recently contacted Horry about it
It's official: Lakers have a signed contract from their new coach, Byron Scott. News conference will be Tuesday morning at 11 a.m.
