Lakers To Add Jim Eyen To Byron Scott’s Coaching Staff

Byron Scott said that his coaching staff should begin taking shape this week, and now that seems to be the case as former Sacramento Kings assistant Jim Eyen will join Scott’s staff according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne:

Eyen has been around the NBA for a long time. He has spent 22 years as an assistant coach in the NBA, most recently with the Sacramento Kings under Mike Malone. Eyen also has experience in Los Angeles.

He originally started as an assistant with the Clippers in 1988 before joining Pat Riley’s staff with the Lakers the following year, spending three total seasons with the team.

Eyen would return to Los Angeles when Mike Dunleavy was named head coach of the Clippers in 2003, spending six seasons.

There is no word on who else will join the Lakers staff at this time, though rumors said that former Seattle SuperSonics and Lakers point guard, Gary Payton is a possibility.

    Well if they fire Scott after a 1-4 start maybe he’ll get the job!

    • meep

      blah blah blah

      • Zach

        Sadly, that might be your most insightful comment ever.

    • binary

      You don’t understand. The Lakers don’t have an assistant coach. You need to go back to the dictionary and find the meaning.

    • DKWTTY

      Get a life faggot. Nothing you’ve ever said was insightful. Loser.

      • Zach

        LOL, another little clown hiding behind his keyboard. Drooling about Mamba in his mouth. Pathetic!

        • DKWTTY

          That sounds like a fantasy of yours considering you spend more time thinking and talking about Kobe than any other fan here COMBINED. How his dick taste since it’s always in your mouth? Hiding behind a keyboard? Says the faggot always on LN talking shit but too scared to reveal his real identity? You’re a coward and a loser. GET. A. LIFE.

          • Zach

            LOL, I’d say these things to your face, clown. But you wouldn’t even look my way out of fear if we ever met. Guarantee it. Now go change your tampon, your tears got it even soggier honey.

          • Eman94

            Do you still consider yourself a man considering you just called another man honey? If your gonna insult someone at least try to sound like a man. There are certain words men shouldn’t use and you calling him honey made you sound like a complete fag

          • Zach

            Sounds like it upset you sweetie pie..? Maybe you need to change your tampon, LOL!

          • Eman94

            Still talking like a fag while avoiding my question like you usually do. Leave the “LOL!” to the teenage girls, you talk like a social media queen.

          • Zach

            Sounds like it’s making you tear up a bit? LOL! Nothing funnier than a virgin wimp hiding behind his keyboard like Eman. Been on any dates lately littlte lonely loser? LOL.

          • DKWTTY

            You didn’t answer the question you queer. How does Kobe’s dick taste? Like victory perhaps? You are the one crying about them winning titles punk bitch. Boo hoo the Lakers are so talented and amazing. “I’m a little crybaby bitch named Zach wahhhh wahhh wahhhh where’s my mommy!”

          • Zach

            You’re the one in love with the rapist, not me. That’s pretty obvious. You defend him more than you’ve ever defended a woman. Don’t you think that’s a bit odd Mamba-sucker?

          • DKWTTY

            I’m a Lakers fan fag, why wouldn’t I be on LN. What are you doing on here? Oh I know, slurping up Kobe because you always got his name in your mouth. He didn’t rape that whore you white supremacist but I wished he rape your whore mother. Fuck outta here before I split your head open.

          • Zach

            LOL, I think your tampon just fell out! Nothing more laughable than a twerp like you getting tough behind his keyboard, too funny! And sounds like your crush on Rape Boy just gets bigger with every post. Avoid hotel rooms with him, he doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. Not that YOU’D ever turn down your hero…

          • DKWTTY

            Nothing more laughable than a butt hurt troll crying about a sports team winning titles. “Wahhhhh I’m Zach and I hate the Lakers and Kobe Bryant so I sit online all day complaining wahhhhh mommy where’s my bottle wahhhhh!” Boo hoo ya bitch. Cry some more. Sounds like you want Kobe to rape you? I guess slobbing his knob every day isn’t doing it anymore?

  • vdogg

    never understood why laker haters are constantly on the lakers’ site. we get it, you’re not a fan. you’re also pathetic. don’t like country music? ok, why listen to it and bitch all the time? turn the dial already. that aside, sounds like coach eyen comes with some good credentials. still hoping that ‘the glove’ is a part of the staff, too.

    • binary

      Don’t feed the trolls man. Just ignore them. They do nothing productive but trolling/insulting…they’re bored and kinda sad. So ignore them.

      • vdogg

        for the most part, i do. don’t respond to any of those morons unless they respond to my post first.

        • Zach

          Except mine, huh? Liar.

          • vdogg

            LOL. YOU are the one who can’t stop responding to me, pal. case is point. you just did it again!

          • vdogg

            case IN point.

    • DKWTTY

      lol Agreed but I thought you ignored them. I honestly do not understand. They hate us when we are good and hate us when we are bad. Their lives have to be pretty miserable to sit up and troll a Lakers site all day. I hate a lot of teams but don’t go out of my way to post about it on their websites every single day.

    • TheZuluNation

      Absolutely agree… it makes no sense at all but the Lakers must be doing something right if they are consistently being talked about.

  • TheZuluNation

    Not familiar w/ Eyen but he seems well-qualified for the position. I just hope Payton decides to join the staff as well along w/ Horry too.

  • Truth B Told

    To all these TROLLS…..This is how Big the Lakers Fan base is…You come over here.because this is the SPOT……Check all other areas……..I’ll wait……………………..We are all over……..So trolling over here you have no win………Back to your dungeons.

    • Zach

      Good point Truth, and it’s also why front-running losers with no success in their lives jump on the Laker bandwagon. Like to associate with the past success, even if the team stinks now and for the foreseeable future.

      • DKWTTY

        That doesn’t even make sense idiot. If people like to associate with them for their success and are bandwagon why wouldn’t they just go to another team since the Lakers “stink” now? Yet you see us all here right? You always contradict your own points. What a moron.

      • Double

        wow u surely spend a lot of time on this site…just out of curiosity…why?

  • Zach

    “They should get Payton too, will ensure the title!!!”
    - Laker fans before the ’03-’04 season

  • DKWTTY

    Lakers are such a dominate force in the NBA we even have haters and trolls when we aren’t winning but the same idiots turn around and say we’re irrelevant. LOL!! Sit back and enjoy the LAKE SHOW…best show in the world. Hands down!

  • Hafamoll .

    who is this guy the kings didnt do any better then us and they were healthy byron wtf man

  • CORKY CARROLL

    The dog days of summer when the COMMENTS are far more entertaining than the stories, but at least this one has some real news instead of just the normal fluff. I hope BScott hires the Glove, that dude knows his D.

  • Zach

    Feel bad for Scott, coaching Kobe when he’s not even a top 50 player any more, not even close.

    • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

      Well, according to you, he has never been a top 50 player. I think Byron will manage.

      • Zach

        Yep, he’ll manage to win about 25 games.

  • Chrmngblly

    I am interested in the proposed Lin/Randle to the Sunsfor Bledsoe/Green trade.

    http://networkdotyardbarkerdotcom/nba/article_external/los_angeles_lakers_a_phoenix_trade_for_eric_bledsoe/17065367.

    We are suddenly clogged at the 4. Maybe we can get a center in the deal, too.

  • Chrmngblly

    Fine. Can we snag Chip Engelland from SA?

  • Robert Knowles

    Kobe is #1 in the NBA today and is #2 ALL TIME behind MJ!!!

  • Robert Knowles

    GREAT selection choosing Eyen…..a huge part of the showtime lakers back then….he can help our offense too!!! Hope we get the GLOVE too!!!

    • vdogg

      agree on both counts.

  • gmoney

    Can we just hire Gary payton already? He’s a former laker (even though for only a season) who made the finals with kobe, shaq, and malone…plus he’s top 10 all time greatest point guards AND the greatest defensive guard of all time
