Eric Pincus

Well play hard every single night and we'll be ready to defend - Scott on Lakers - and that's it for the introductory presser

Dan Woike

Weird hearing questions about the #Clippers at a Lakers press conference.

Arash Markazi

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."

Mike Bresnahan

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."

Eric Pincus

This is still a Lakers town - period - Scott on Clippers - said nice rivalry locally but refers to championship count

Mike Trudell

Someone asked Scott about the Clippers: "I don't think L.A. has gone to the Clippers. This is still a Lakers town. Period."

Dave McMenamin

Byron: "I don't think L.A. has gone to the Clippers yet ... This is still a Lakers town. Period."

John Ireland

Not hidden, just a rule RT @BobaPhattt: is it a hidden rule that Jim Hill always ask the first question in every Lakers press conference?

Eric Pincus

Lakers will run variations of what Scott has run in the past offensively including some Princeton

Arash Markazi

Byron: "Working with Time Warner (as a Lakers analyst) didn't help the itch, it enhanced it."

Eric Pincus

People are down on us right now but that can drive us - Byron on Lakers

Sam Amico

Byron Scott says Lakers will try to control pace, not push it. "We can't play that way. We don't have Magic Johnson."

Arash Markazi

Mitch said Byron Scott being a former Lakers player and having the support of the fans was a factor.

Eric Pincus

Mitch said Lakers chose to put together roster before coach but had Scott as favorite throughout

Eric Pincus

Byron said used to sneak into the Forum to see Jerry West play - he's been blessed in his life to be a player and now coach of Lakers

Sam Amico

Lakers coach Byron Scott tells assembled media in LA: "This organization has always been about winning championships. Period."

Juanma Rubio

Esto es lo que más me ha emocionado de los Lakers en muuuuucho tiempo: @Magic Johnson : "Estoy aqui para apoyar a mi hermano"

Eric Pincus

A dream come true - Scott on Lakers position

You seem fun at parties. AK RT @lakersball32: "officially" is redundant if you say "Per the Lakers"
