Byron Scott Rumors
LeBron James sure ain’t quieting down the noise surrounding him coming to L.A. … and ex-Lakers coach Byron Scott says the odds are damn good that happens. “I think it’s probably 50/50 right now,” Byron told TMZ Sports outside Craig’s in WeHo.
“Yeah, I got words for Byron Scott: Shut the hell up and do what you do,” he told TMZ Sports. “Leave me alone. He ain’t doing nothing now.” Ball continued, “Tell him, if he want his name in the news, go do something. You ain’t gotta talk about ball to get your name in the news. “But then again, yes you do, ’cause ain’t nobody talk about Byron Scott doing nothing.”
Ball recently laid into Lakers coach Luke Walton … saying he’s “soft” and doesn’t know how to properly coach his son, Lonzo Ball. So, we hit up Byron to see how he would handle the situation if he was in Luke’s shoes. Long story short, Byron says guys like LaVar need to shut their traps and let the coaches coach. “Shut up. Stay put. Stay on the sidelines. We got this.”
“It’s great for a coach to talk to you and let you know where you’re at and not keeping you in the dark, like some coaches I know,” Young said. “I’m not just going into the game blindsided. He pretty much talks to me everyday, harps on me on everything I need to do in different situations.”
