Byron Scott Rumors
Police say an estimated $200,000 in watches, jewelry, high-end purses and cash were stolen from the home of former Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott, who now does some analysis work for the Lakers’ cable network in L.A. The break-in at Scott’s Hermosa Beach house is the latest in a string of burglaries to hit celebrities in the Los Angeles area, including Nicki Minaj and Alanis Morissette. Police who arrived at the house at 1:30 p.m. Saturday found a patio door had been forced open.
Byron Scott can add his name to the list of L.A. celebs who’ve had their house burglarized … TMZ has learned. Multiple sources close to Scott tell us … his Hermosa Beach pad was hit Friday night by suspected burglars. It’s unclear how they got into his place or what was stolen at this point … but we’re told everyone’s okay.
He’s been out of the league since 2016 after an ugly breakup with the Lake Show — but since he’s only 56, we had to ask if he was mulling a return to the bench. Scott’s answer was straight and to the point — “No” — explaining he’s moved on with his life and he’s not looking back.
“I can honestly say that might be the best offense I’ve ever seen,” Scott told The Undefeated. “So many weapons and so many great scorers. They can beat you with their shot and they can beat you off the dribble, which creates even more problems.”
When asked if the Warriors have the best offense of all time, Thomas told The Undefeated: “This Golden State Warriors team that we are watching is going to go down as one of the best teams to ever play and should be talked about in that light. You’ve got to compare their offense [to Showtime], but the eras are so different. You don’t have the Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar] factor. But if you’re talking Magic, Byron Scott, Michael Cooper and all that, then you’ve got to say Durant, Thompson, Curry, Draymond Green and all them. They’re comparable to them. The only thing is, ain’t no Kareem. I’m happy to be on this Earth right now watching these young jokers play. They’re doing it.”
