Byron Scott loves to question his team’s manhood. The Lakers coach is an “old school” guy and believes that there is only one way to play the game, his way. And, his inability to connect with young players is well documented. In the Lakers recent loss to the Celtics on Sunday, Scott asked his players at halftime how many of them had ever been in a fist fight. Apparently he didn’t like the energy and effort the team started the game with.
What a surprise, a 16 win team that just went through a locker room scandal this past week and whose young players are demoralized, didn’t start the game fired up enough. Who could’ve seen that coming? See Scott’s press conference below, where he talks about the halftime question.
