Well play hard every single night and we'll be ready to defend - Scott on Lakers - and that's it for the introductory presser
Scott: "I don't think LA has gone to the Clippers. LA is still a Lakers town. One has 16 banners and one doesn't have any."
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."
This is still a Lakers town - period - Scott on Clippers - said nice rivalry locally but refers to championship count
Someone asked Scott about the Clippers: "I don't think L.A. has gone to the Clippers. This is still a Lakers town. Period."

Lakers will run variations of what Scott has run in the past offensively including some Princeton
Byron: "Working with Time Warner (as a Lakers analyst) didn't help the itch, it enhanced it."
