On Wednesday, Kobe Bryant spoke to the media for the first time in quite awhile. Kobe was in Santa Barbara for his annual basketball camp and took many different questions including whether he’d like Byron Scott to be the next Lakers head coach.

The veteran guard also talked about when Scott was his mentor during his rookie year in Los Angeles back during the 1996-97 NBA season via Winters:

With Carmelo and LeBron likely to make their decisions in free agency within the next 24 hours or so, the Lakers brass could also hire their next coach in the very near future.
