Word is front office has no intention of firing him, the reasoning is that the play of the team is not his fault. Developing talent is one of the arguments for Kobe quitting today BTW, another thing that will not happen.
I am not 100% sure that Scott cant develop players. He is working under orders to put on the most entertaining show he can each night, it is not clear to me that this Laker management has any understanding of the need to develop talent, of the need to suffer through boring games to hopefully get the youngsters enough practice that they can get good and win games. And we know that they dont have any experience developing talent, they have never needed to do it.
Jim needs to leave for sure, Scott will for sure soon and maybe should be replaced now, but there are a whole lot of other things that need to change before the rebuilding can start .The lakers still dont understand that they are nowhere, they have little talent, they have no ability to develop talent, and no star in his right mind is going to play for a management that is this inept. Dwight Howard understood the score a couple of years before it became clear to me.
