VIDEO: Rapper Ice Cube Wants Byron Scott As Lakers New Head Coach
The Los Angeles Lakers will take their time in finding the next head coach of the team after the last two turned out to be massive disappointments.
As of right now, many believe that Byron Scott may be the right man for the job as the new leader on the sidelines, but it remains to be seen if the team is sold on hiring the former Coach of the Year. Scott has expressed interest for quite some time and is a legitimate candidate along with a long list of other coaches currently looking for work in the NBA.
Rapper Ice Cube was recently spotted at LAX by TMZ and was asked about the Lakers coaching search. Cube has been an avid Lakers fan for years and never seems to have a problem expressing his opinion on what direction the team should go in with players and coaches.
This time around, Cube didn’t hesitate to say that Scott should be the next head coach of the Lakers. Along with believing Scott is the right coach for this team because he’s a “Real Laker,” Cube also chimed in on Phil Jackson.
Cube believes that Jackson isn’t happy in New York and the 11-time NBA champion regrets the decision to take over the Knicks. Although Jackson did inherit a team that might be more of a mess than the Lakers currently, it would be safe to say that he’s got 60 million reason to be happy with his current situation regardless of the state of the Knicks.
