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.
Time flying quickly. Lakers start training camp in four weeks...
Something the long-in-the-tooth Lakers won't complain about: Nine-day rest between games during elongated All-Star break. Nine days!
After seven straight years of staying home on Christmas, it had to happen: Lakers at Chicago on Dec. 25. They open Oct. 28 at home vs. HOU.
Times colleague @BillPlaschke talking Lakers, Byron Scott as we speak. latimes.com/sports/lakers/…
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."
