Byron Scott on Jerry Buss, Julius Randle, Dr. J
Lakers head coach Byron Scott joined the show to talk about returning to L.A. and more. Scott talked about his respect for late owner Jerry Buss. He said that his rookie Julius Randle is Zach Randolph-like … “in a few years he’s going to be a monster.” Scott also looked back at how great Dr. J was back in the day — Scott noted he was not there when Julius cradle-dunked over Michael Cooper.
Dan asked if they were going to make the playoffs. “I guarantee you this team is going to surprise some people,” Scott said.
