Thanks to everyone that watched the live stream of the Byron Scott press conference. We'll have the full version up later today.
Someone asked Scott about the Clippers: "I don't think L.A. has gone to the Clippers. This is still a Lakers town. Period."
Retweeted by Los Angeles Lakers
Scott affectionately calls Magic "Buck," as so many of his teammates did, while Magic calls Scott "Baby B." He was their rook.

Scott: "Kobe's an unbelievable basketball player that has an unbelievable mind about basketball. I see us (talking) a lot about the game."
Retweeted by Los Angeles Lakers
Scott on Jeremy Lin: "He's feisty, tough, he competes. He can shoot the ball, push the ball up and down the floor, he gets to the basket."
Retweeted by Los Angeles Lakers
Scott will implement an offense that's a mix of systems: "You're trying to take advantage of any situation you can on the offensive end."
Retweeted by Los Angeles Lakers
Byron on the system he'll run: "It'll be a mixture of everything I've done so far in New Jersey, New Orleans and Cleveland."
Scott doesn't want to put a lot of pressure on Julius Randle right away, that he wants him to just play. Does think he has great potential.

Byron on Kobe: "Great relationship. We get along extremely well. We text each other a lot. I'm looking forward to coaching Kobe."
Kupchak: "From the beginning, although we went through a long process, we felt Byron was the leader and the right choice."
Retweeted by Los Angeles Lakers
Scott says this message was delivered by Magic early in his career: "We win championships by defending every single night."
Retweeted by Los Angeles Lakers
Byron: "I think they put a roster together that will be very competitive. The thing I have to do is put together a defensive b-ball team."
Byron: "The passion & love I have for this organization is second to none. The only thing I regret is that Dr. Buss isn't here."
Byron: "This has been a dream of mine for so long. It's a dream come true."
