Here’s @SerenaWinters’ interview with Byron Scott as he talks about mentoring Kobe and his message for Lakers fans: lakersnation.com/lakers-nation-…

Jason Walker

Umm, Kobe at the point? With Swaggy, Wes, Jordan Hill, Randle? Yes, please and thank you -- All League Pass subscribers

Gary Lee

Byron Scott says there will be times where he goes with what Kobe sees on the floor — other times he won’t. Details: lakersnation.com/byron-scott-en…

Dave McMenamin

Very interesting to hear Byron saying Kobe could play the point. How would a Kobe, Swaggy, Wes, Randle/Boozer, Hill starting 5 do?

Mike Trudell

Scott: "Kobe's an unbelievable basketball player that has an unbelievable mind about basketball. I see us (talking) a lot about the game."

Arash Markazi

Byron Scott says Kobe has to be patient. Kobe is a lot of things, patient isn't one of them.

Mike Trudell

Kobe was Byron's rookie back in 1996, and they've carried a strong relationship through Bryant's 18 NBA years. Built on mutual respect.

Arash Markazi

Byron Scott: "I'm looking forward to coaching Kobe... It's going to be fun."

Mike Trudell

Byron on his relationship with Kobe: "Great relationship. We talk/text a lot. I know (Kobe's) will and determination."

Dave McMenamin

Byron Scott on Kobe: "I think we're on the same page on how we think about this game and how it should be played"

David 'Dubi' Pick

French club Le Havre welcomes back John Cox, cousin of Kobe Bryant. Saw him scouting at NBA Summer League.

ICYMI: If Kobe Bryant is Batman, then who’s Robin for the Lakers this season? Nick Young. According to Nick Young. lakersnation.com/nick-young-say…

Mark Medina

I can neither confirm nor deny that I'm going to Germany to get my knee fixed like Kobe. Trip should be fun nonetheless.

Alex Kennedy

Can't wait to see Derrick Rose, Kobe Bryant, Al Horford, Brook Lopez, Danilo Gallinari, Jrue Holiday, Nerlens Noel, etc. healthy in 2014-15.

Jodie Meeks might’ve signed with the Pistons, but paid tribute to Kobe Bryant. And they said he was a bad teammate. lakersnation.com/former-laker-j…

Mike Trudell

Important to have some athleticism/length next to Kobe on the wing. Johnson's shot will need to improve, as will his consistency on O and D.

Mike Trudell

Johnson showed flashes last year, and also struggled at various points of the season. Being on the floor w/Kobe pushing him could help.

Kevin Ding

How can this no-win situation be win-win for Byron and Kobe? ICYMI from yesterday, my column: bleacherreport.com/articles/21429…

Chris Sheridan

Taking a pay cut of nearly $7 million was @Kobe Bryant, who nonetheless remained #NBA's top paid player sheridanhoops.com/2014/07/25/kob…

Kevin Ding

In Vegas for USA Basketball workouts this week. Would've been pretty cool--and useful for him--if Kobe had joined for the summer, no?

If Kobe is Batman, then Nick Young is Robin. According to Nick Young. Of course. lakersnation.com/nick-young-say… http://t.co/95AyWh3ze3

Except for Kobe, Byron Scott believes players “need to understand what it means to put that purple and gold on.” lakersnation.com/byron-scott-pl…

Lakers Rewind: Kobe Bryant Drops 36 During Summer League lakersnation.com/lakers-rewind-…

Roland Lazenby

Lots and lots and lots of pressure on Kobe for this season. I guess that's how he'll try to squeeze another big year out of his game.

Roland Lazenby

I feel like I'm sitting at a poker table with Jim Buss, hoping his luck turns, that he plays the cards better. But it is Kobe+a new season

Roland Lazenby

There's no new energy in what the Lakers are doing. It feels flat. The challenge will be not to be flat. It puts lots of pressure on Kobe.

Ramona Shelburne

Scott said only he and Kobe "really understand what it means to be a Laker" & it's important to be "delivering the same message."

Ramona Shelburne

Scott said Kobe has been working with Wes and Nick. "I told him that sounded great, but 'They better be ready to play some D.' "

Jabari Davis

I expect Scott to handle players (KB) well, but hope to see progress as an in-game tactician & w/in-season adjustmnts. Cautiously optimistic

Alex Kennedy

I talked to @Ed Davis about joining the Lakers, learning from Kobe Bryant, expectations for next season and more: ow.ly/ztKhv

LeBron leaving probably has something to do with Wade’s comments, but he did say last season Kobe is the “greatest player in our era."
