Then yeah..... He's on my list if he condones Paul's chicken crap antics. That's not the way he played the game.

Paul has always been a flopper but his time with the Clippers has been much worse than before. I'm guessing injuries have limited his effectiveness so he flops more. I don't think Byron ever coached him to flop, Rivers does.

Also I'm gonna note the ASU shirt and cap. Yes that was his college, but he should be rocking Laker wear.

He doesn't really "want" it as much as he professed to want to be the Lakers' coach. :man2:

I know you guys are older than me, but I'm in my mid 30s so I watched Byron as a YOUNG player. He's one of, if not my favorite Laker. Seeing him look like that makes me feel old. :man6: When Kobe does retire it's gonna be hard on me because we're the same age. By him retiring, it basically cements the fact that I am physically inadequate. :man10:

Byron does look old! He needs to either shave the stache off, or dye it.

Larry Drew is joining the Cavs coaching staff as an assistant. I was hoping we could get him to come back to LA.

Isn't Byron supposed to announce his coaching staff this week? It's Wednesday and haven't heard any rumblings. Or is the same process at play as it was with hiring Scott where they prolong the obvious, in this case, Madsen, Lewis, Davis and ?

For you old school 90's Lakers fans, looks like the Lakers are bringing back a familiar face to the coaching staff...

Ramona Shelburne ‏@ramonashelburne 4m

Lakers expected to add well-respected assistant Jim Eyen to Byron Scott's staff, sources tell ESPN. He was last w/ Kings.

Rest of Scott's staff still being finalized, should be done soon. You've heard the rest of the names.

Mark Madsen Expected To Stay On Byron Scott’s Coaching Staff

Mark Madsen Expected To Stay On Byron Scott’s Coaching Staff

Image

Posted on August 18, 2014 by Mark Medina

There appears to be some clarity on how Byron Scott will fill out his coaching staff.

Mark Madsen is expected to stay on Byron Scott’s coaching staff, according to league sources, after spending the past year as a player development coach for former Lakers coach Mike Do’Antoni and an associate head coach with the team’s Las Vegas Summer League team. Madsen also played a heavy role with the Lakers’ drafting efforts, attending both the NBA pre-draft combine and participating in various draft workouts. Madsen had played nine years in the NBA and was on the Lakers’ 2001 and 2002 championship teams. It is not currently clear what Madsen’s title will be under Scott.

Scott is also expected to add veteran assistant Jim Eyen to his staff, according to league sources. Eyen has spent 23 years as an NBA assistant coach in various capacities, most recently with the Sacramento Kings (2009-2013). Such stops also included the Lakers (1989-92), Clippers (1988-89, 2003-09), Milwaukee Bucks (1992-96) and Portland Trail Blazers (1997-2001). Eyen also had scouting jobs with the New York Knicks (1996-97, 2003), was an assistant coach at University of California at Santa Barbara (1984-88) and served as a consultant for professional teams in the Netherlands, Germany and Japan. Eyen is also the son-in-law of Bill Bertka, the Lakers’ current special assistant and basketball consultant to general manager Mitch Kupchak.

ESPN Los Angeles first reported the Lakers’ likelihood to add Eyen to Scott’s staff.

Scott will likely have four people on his coaching staff. Possibilities include Lakers assistant Johnny Davis and player development Larry Lewis, both of whom are still under contract. It is widely expected that Scott’s son, Thomas, will join his staff after coaching with the D-Fenders, the Lakers’ Development League affiliate.

Would have been a good coach.. about 3 seasons ago. Should have hired Steve Clifford, but nope..

People are expecting too much I think. What happens to this coach after two seasons with no play-offs? Are 'casual' fans ready for two more years without playoffs? I don't think so.. he'll be pushed out.

Hopefully I'm wrong and people are willing to wait while the club restructures.. but all I hear so far is 'finally a real coach now we can get back to winning'.. just not going to happen.

I think he deserves a shot at the end of the Kobe era, as well as post-Kobe. If the FO can't assemble a championship team within 2-3 years, that's their fault, largely for signing Kobe to a huge contract. But it's not like we have Kyrie/Love/Waiters/Varejao/Marion/etc. If we can't win with Kobe in a couple years, I don't think it will be Byron's fault. Post-Kobe, well, we will almost certainly have many more assets rather than 1 MAJOR asset.
