"But I'm GonNa let him let that last long so I think we all knew that he was going to be the same Michael Jordan. He was when he when he You know before. He left for the For Baseball when he came back firing you know what I like. I felt like that documentary for young people. Right was education on a lot of ways but particularly for Laker fans. Because you're seeing the guy. Kobe wanted to emulate you around Kobe as a young man. You coached him like what? What kind of similarities? Could you draw between those two guys? I'm telling you this George. You know people that are watching this documentary Michael and seeing how driven he was seeing how. He treated his teammates and how he pushed his teammates. You're looking at you know Kobe. Whatever ten twenty years ago I mean that's that was him you know You know not. Not to the point. Where he'd be raiders play but he challenge guys he he wanted to know. You know and I'm talking about Kobe. He wanted to know who he can be in a Fox hole with you know. He wanted to know who's who he could go to war with. And he was gonNA test you every single day of practice and that that was m j you know it really good friend of Mine Dera Walker play with Chicago. Used to tell me stories than men do with punch people in practice you know but he did it to find out who who Who can go to war? But you know you wanted to test your heart and great leaders. You know have different Mentalities out there on the court during practice you know Irvin Magic. Johnson wasn't like that he would jump on you but he did in way where he was really trying to encourage you To get the best out of you and and that worked for him and it worked for us you know. Mj was totally different. You know in in both guys are extremely successful. So you know when you're looking at this documentary this is this. Is You looking at a lot of what what Colby Bryant was all about? And that's basically who we learned from was Michael Jordan. So you're watching you know You know two of the greatest that ever played a game and how they really went into every practice when into every game how they prepare mentally as well as physically how. They challenge themselves in their teammates and their coaches and front office. I mean those guys didn't leave anybody out you know. Nobody was Everybody was vulnerable to to to get. You know a tongue lashing from those guys. So that's how you have to look at so you're telling me that Kobe Bryant almost maybe one day might have thought about punching Marcelo where tests or some riot Orion Kelly or someone like that. Yeah if they would have messed up in practice where he was on. Your team know You know I thought elbows the guys in practice but again he was both sometimes. Hit you in the chest and then we get the other guys. Who's in front of just to see if you can get a reaction out the guy? I mean that. That was just Kobe again. He wants to find out who he can go to war with for sure Byron with us here Byron Scott Laker Great. When did you? When were you aware of their relationship? Because I mean I don't know how many of us knew what the depths of their relationship was until Michael. Talk that memorial service. But you around him. Did you know that those two were were pretty close not did your? I mean that was you know. Mj talking about the phone calls and the conversations that they had memorial. I was sitting here like wow. I didn't know that relationship with that type and you could tell it. Was that time. When you look at 'em Jay at the memorial and and How he was crying and the heartfelt messages that he said in the things that he said about kb as his little brother and you know the vice that he would give him and you could tell that they had a relationship that lasted for a while. You know and I don't think a lot of people knew that you know. Obviously Michael didn't make known in. Kobe didn't go around bragging on his relationship with Michael Jordan It was just something to those to have between themselves. And you could tell. Talk a lot about basketball Probably about life in general so it was. It was really good to hear you know some of those stories from Michael You know about his his compensation. Koby and again like you said I. I had no clue. They were that close. But it was really great to hear Byron Scott Laker Gray. Joining us here on this show on. Espn Byron.

"Dream is one day for you and Jeannie to run the Lakers. Well, I'll take a page. I'll take that a step further. It was very important. There was this division of of jobs with the Lakers. Right. What the doctor bus wanted hit envision? And he put Jim in charger, basketball and genie in charge of business. Ingenious come to conclusion that does not work. We have to be Rony est group with me at the top. We have to involve each other in decisions, and we have to work in conjunction with each other. And once she decided that she desperately needed someone she trusted that would communicate with her. And that was magic genie. Of course knows Jerry and respects him. But doesn't have that relationship that she has magic magic. It's her age. They've been friends since they were twenty. Yeah. Since then. Goes this is a guy who I trust in an who knows basketball, and he's going to keep me in the loop 'cause Rhona comment on this. I don't think she could have been more out of the loop when Mitch and Jim website like she there is the to the point where I had Byron Scott quoted in a story subsequent story saying I had a personal relationship with Gina was friends with genie. But I wouldn't I felt like if I went and talked to her when I was coach of the Lakers that Jim and Mitch get mad at me that I was being disloyal to them. That's the division. That's how Steve and distrust about division. We should earlier will we know if the magic rob Pelinka era is successful by July the fifth to be the twelfth could be the twelfth. Yeah.

"To guys who don't have money on the books next year. Which makes again the lot of guys you can pick from a lot smaller. Eight seven seven seven ten ESPN. Byron is in the house. We're gonna hang out you tweet us as well at Sodano ESPN follow Byron on Twitter as well. Fischel B Scott is where you find look we got some stuff standing Gundy had some great comments yesterday. Stephen had some comments about this whole, Luke Walton thing even always got listened. It was on fire Boito, but he always got comedy. He was on fire. You don't wanna hear what Stephen said and give you a preview stuff. That's what Stephen Byron Scott hanging out with us here on the show on ESPN LA by we were just talking about. You know, the gentleman who called earlier it's kind of breaking it down. And you thought he made to good points. Absolutely. I thought that what are you talking about with the the roster and everything management? The one thing managed to manage could do obviously would would be is at anytime. They can let him go. Right. But you made a great point as far as he has to understand. They want to keep all the flexibility that they have in the salary cap for next year. They wanna be able to have enough money to sign another big time player. So magic in rob have done a great job of getting all these aspiring contracts for next year. So they have all this money under the cap again about thirty eight thirty nine million, right? So yes, understand that. And number two. He he's right. When Djamil McGee goes out the game, they are very small basketball team. And you know, it is just is great as LeBron James as we all know, he can probably play all five positions. But it's probably not in your best interest that he's playing on five position. Right. Every single night. He shouldn't be playing backup center. Yeah. Kouzmin is just to light and to to inexperience at that position to play the backup center. So when javale goes out there, they're getting hammered. You're right now. So the only way you can solve that situations by bringing in another backups. Center, but I agree with you may two very good points. But again, you gotta understand management. You know, this is this is actually what they want right now did exactly what they wanted to do over the summer. They kept I flip flexibility, you know, for next year, which is very important because we know there are some free agents next year too big time named that could possibly LAN here in LA along with LeBron James that can take us to a different level for the next year. You know, so keeping that flexibility is important for magic and rob. And they know that and I think we all know that as well because we know that this is a process this is a two or three year process. And you got the first year under your belt when you got LeBron James now, you just play it out. And then boom you start getting that second year under your belt. So one of the callers before you came in was talking about a lot of people have been tweeting me this too about Nick vuckovich who plays for Landau. And he's an expiring thirteen million whatever. Yes, he's not the type of player you want on this team. Not the way they wanna play basketball. He's a he can shoot a little bit. But he's back to the basket in the. Post area like good offensive player bad player that you play the kid from Michigan Viner right now. He like you said if you're talking about an offense being he's pretty good in the post like you say can shoot it from about seventeen feet, expiring contracts, all those positives. But on the defensive in and the way that they've been playing up and down. He's not going to run up and down like that. No, no. That's not his style. He's a he's a half court type center. So I agree with you. I at the end of the day. I would just get a rook some some plan time at that position. And if you're going to bring in a guy to play the backup center, the guy that you should be targeting is the guy in Chicago, Robin. Lopez now, Robin Lopez is a defensive minded he's the opposite of his brother. Basically, don't you know, Brooke is decent defender..

"More than capable of generating hysteria without having anybody inside the organization add to it. I think magical learned that, okay, that probably wasn't the best way to go about, especially with a young player, especially with a guy that had some fundamental flaws in his game, namely his offensive game and had JD done. We used to look, we think we've got a great player. We think he's going to be good player in this league for a very long time. We can't wait to get him in the building. We can't wait to get started. There you go. We're often running because then when he goes ten, seven and seven were like there there it is. We're good on our way as opposed to name in the rafters, restore the Laker glory. We're back. It's like, well, okay, that means that you're back with Kobe, power, Kobe, and shocker, magic and cream. It's gonna take a minute. So yeah, I think he learned his and now you don't even have to do it. You don't even have to sell it that I would argue coming into this season. LeBron is number one right? As far as where the attention is going to go the season and just the the horsepower that's going to be drawn to these things LeBron's going to get the vast, vast majority of then beyond that, I think goes to Brandon Ingram. I think it goes to Kyle Kuzma and then it probably goes to Lonzo ball. So let's going to drown out lines. I, I just don't think it's, I don't think it drowns him out. I think it just kinda shifts it away from him so he doesn't have to deal with all of that. And I think it's going to be incredibly beneficial for him instead of having to be the savior, he can be one of the guys that's playing really well. It's a totally different role and one that I think he's gonna thrive in. So he went from possibly being parallels of shack and Coby in urban and all of that to now being like a James worthy. For what. What does he go from it? Because the expectation was for him to be up here. Yes, you Brian James, that all of a sudden that elevator went down a couple notches, which is we're going to see what he is. I'm not gonna say that he's break my records or he's going to be James where they, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna wait to see what he is. I'm going to wait to see what he does really. Well, I'm going to wait to see when maybe he doesn't do well. We're going to try to minimize those those things that he does less well that this he's gotta be. No, he doesn't. Just so I'm saying, is he Byron Scott now? Is he. Can't shoot knows now. That's true. Is he Derek? Fisher can shoot to thinking. He's thinking about, sorry he is. Who is he? He's raised on Rondo. The problem is, is that they have a regime Rondo the regime Rhonda. What he is is he can be you go back to when Rhonda was young player in Boston, and when Rondo was role to facilitate for Kevin Garnett to silicate for Paul Pierce and vacillate for Ray rail rail that he was the fourth guy on that team. A very, very important piece incredibly important. But when you're started ripping up, what would they call? They're called the big three. They weren't. They were called the big three. Oh, yeah, Rondos and important pieces. He can be raised on Rondo here. Now you don't have Pierce and Allen. You're only have k. g. in this that being Ron, right? But Kuzina and Ingram are gonna fill this. He's going to be regime Rondo both in game and different temperament, but the skill set he brings is very Rondo ish. I think still though he brings the the, the element of his game that has to obviously be better next year has to be his jump shot, which we can all say that because they're still no fear in letting him shoot. You know what I mean? Like go hit. And like you mentioned, that's the same thing with Rhonda when guys just Slough off Rhonda and they still do it. Yes, still do, but he's still able to still go out and get work. Don't different. Snow is Ronald can get to the bucket..

"We know urban johnson can go to lasca water yeah had to that's just his personality so he's going guys live a room where where he's the best he sit down in front of you when he leaves you going no matter what it is so i i really have a lot of faith a magic in rob pelinka general manager and obviously genie who's the owner of the los angeles that they will get that done this summer beetle is it your gut feeling that lebron james will be a laker next year i know i think paul george will be a laker that one feels not say it's a given but that one feels more likely i still i still don't really know where i stand on the lebron thing i don't know where he plans i don't think he stays in cleveland but i don't necessarily know that it's the lakers to which he goes what do you think what would you like to see love the soom come to the lakers i would love to see him and this is a crazy thing is when i'm walking around town in los angeles i hear a lot of people talking about lebron james and i would say probably fifteen to twenty percent of the people say we don't want lebron i'm like who's we are you out your mind you don't want the best player on the planet to come here and put on their purple and gold are you crazy you know so so so stop hating because i want him to come to los angeles and if we can get paul george come with him then right there we gotta team that we know for sure would be in the playoffs but can they contend with golden state in houston would be the problem i have a secret for you you may wanna keep boogie cousins in mind because the unfiled the pelicans on right should media that always me something today and i like boogie.

"Could it be horrendous somehow byron scott got roped into this ties to you i want to talk a little bit about the rookies in the nba this here because that has become a significant conversation and three of them in particular who are the finalists for the rookie of the year award ben simmons donovan mitchell and jason tatum i'm less interested in who you would vote for for that award than i am and yours segment of those guys and their play of the three which are you the most impressed with simmons mitchell tater for me it's tatum in just watches development from beginning of the season to this particular point the way this kid can play and get you off the dribble can pull up jump shots gets to the basket your defends and he's a very very intelligent basketball player he's been the one that's impressed me the most donovan mitchell was fabulous during the regular season in the playoffs and ben simmons i think everybody had handed him including myself rookie of the year before mid mid season and i don't think he disappointed obviously there's some things in his game he obviously has to work on but all three of these guys are going to be starting this league for a long time to come what specifically with simmons because he's the one who inch intrigues me the most initial be noted you coach p three and kyrie irving as rookie so you magic johnson and played with magic which is going to go so magic everyone was calling ben simmons the next magic magic came into the league he didn't shoot particularly well either maybe not quite on this level struggle what are you seeing in simmons and is it correctable correct and that's the biggest thing would been simmons shooting he's going to have to be able to have a shot this reliable from fifteen to seventeen foot range he doesn't necessarily have to be a three point she'd be successful in this league magic was different magic score on the box and he could hit the seventeen footer and been me and him coop would have shooting games at the practice where he stretched into three point land but he was very effective i don't think being has to get to that particular point but he has to be guarded from fifteen seventeen foot area and if he has that shot where he can knock down on a consistent basis.

"Indeed i am down here on the river of the scotts turf terrace on a nice day in new york city and talk a little bit of football because baker mayfield it's now been a little over three weeks and see was the number one pick in the draft by the cleveland browns and since that time we have all found out that chad pennington was a longtime nfl quarterback has been a mentor for the heisman trophy winner pennington of course played eleven seasons in the nfl many of them as my favorite player in the world after being a first round pick of the jets in two thousand seven he continues to work with baker mayfield to this day so let's bring chad into the conversation here and get a little bit more inside of this tells a little bit about that relationship how it came to be with baker mayfield and where it is now grading through the nfl legends community which is our former player initiative through the league office we also set up a current space current player space initiative with our mentor program so at the senior bowl as well as that the nfl combine many nfl edges were paired with groups of players and i was paired with baker's group of quarterbacks receivers as well as his north team in the senior bowl and just had a chance to share my experiences with them and we just try to be a resource for these current prospects along their journey into the nfl all right and so there's been so much said about him both on the field and off we get to see the stuff on the field how about off tell us about your relationship with baker mayfield what have you observed from young man who some people think is a little bit cocky a little bit arrogant what have you seen well i see a guy who like i've said before is a guy who was twice walkon in college who's had to work really hard to get to where he has gotten and now he's a heisman trophy winner he's the first pick of the draft and he's.

"The floor seems to love it but i do think it is worth noting we talk about the celtics youth all the time as an advantage and it is for their longterm and they're playing young and enthusiastically and aggressively but if the pressure does shift back onto them maybe all the experience on the cleveland side winds up being a factor look if it sounds reasons why cleveland mike win maybe i am but because i've not been buying into boston and they've made me look stupid through this we have a big number lebron newsflash has been carrying the load for the cavs at third level possessing the ball for more than nine minutes game in the playoff thirty seven percent more than his regular season average too much not all will you have an iconic player that's a triple double threat light lebron james just so happy to score forty points in basketball guess what you do you give him the rock yet it's not working no one else is showing up all right time to get up and go there's more stuff going conference that was engaged to blow out for the warriors and a couple of uninspiring performances from the twotime vp and steph curry a lot of questions about his place so far per had this to say about steph after game two cruise lingering injury maybe response lingering injury how much is it responsible for personas played in thirteen point seven percent when i read those comments yesterday it sounded like her was really angry and frustrated when you see it and you see this mile on his face it looks like an entirely different context is everything i love steve kerr's personality and one thing about sports the longer you a part of it you continue to evolve i didn't realize this funny he's a great coach the champion and i like hans importantly it deford is he still hurt is he completely healthy i don't think he's one hundred percent you could tell he's not cutting his heart is not as fast the dribble moves you just saw capello those used to be blistering a put you on skates that was more ball handling more more tained than i'm used to seeing from steph kurt you didn't know steve cruz funny.

"You seventeen five and a free bag of popcorn it's not happening once you drive an awful lot it loses value so you're never going to get that equal value so dan gilbert come to terms with the idea that you're never gonna get equal value for lebron james but you can get something form because you gotta decision to make you can you can you can look around and you can try and figure out what the what the plan is after lebron james i got news for you high reserving and kevin love nets not bad are you winning a title know are you beating boston no but that's not bad that's not a bad headstart think about what she had last time anthony bennett and byron scott i mean come on so if you're dan gilbert it's a it's a ball z move it it would take a lot of guts to pull it off but do it show those balls show the stones that you tell everybody that you know you're the owner and you promised him all this stuff when lebron left you know he's leaving in a year anyway so trade him you'll get a you'll get several number one draft picks back for lebron james look at all those assets boston's guy you think boston wouldn't make a move for lebron james are you insane danny aims that draft pick quarter of the century you think he wouldn't trade away for lebron james 'cause i got news for you any team the trades for lebron james this isn't like your trading for a paul george paul george is a great player it's the only your trading for a guy like paul george to where you've got your whole goal is manner really hope i can selim after this year lebron james's worth the one year rental if you can't sell them you can't sell them but he's worth the one year rental go get him somewhere see how much he likes it and then see if he walks away from it but if you trade it away lebron james that's a big statement and now you turn around and instead of trying to sell lebron james on wanting to be here longterm now you're trying to sell the twenty five year old on max money and handing them the keys to.
