Lakers News: Byron Scott Believes Lin Will Have A ‘Chip On His Shoulder’

Though nothing has been made official, all signs seem to point to Byron Scott being the next head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. If he is indeed next in line, Scott will have some new players at his disposal.

One of the biggest additions to the Lakers this summer was point guard Jeremy Lin. One of the more talked about players in the league, Lin could be the starter at point guard with so many questions surrounding Steve Nash.

In an interview with Time Warner Cable SportsNet, Scott revealed what he liked about Lin:

I like Jeremy, I really do. I think he’s a kid that plays the right way [and] plays extremely hard. He seems to always be in attack mode offensively. [He] pushes the ball up the floor as well as anybody in the league. Defensively – the thing that I thought was going to his biggest downfall – was something that I thought he really competed at the times I coached against him.

Lin definitely brings some positives to the Lakers as he has proven that he can handle bright lights and perform under pressure. After a couple of underwhelming years in Houston, Scott believes that Lin will be looking to prove people wrong in Los Angeles:

He’s, I think, looking to kind of re-establish himself because of the injuries that he had last year in Houston and [he] kind of lost his way and lost his job there, and I think he’s going to [come to L.A.] with a little chip on his shoulder, so I thought it was a good move.

Scott has experienced his best coaching success when guiding top tier point guards, leading Jason Kidd to back-to-back NBA Finals appearances with the New Jersey Nets, and coaching Chris Paul to a near MVP season in 2008.

Scott and Lin could be a match made in heaven if they do come together in Los Angeles. And that could be the key to the Lakers surprising some teams this season.
