During a recent episode of the show ‘Undisputed,’ host Skip Bayless asked Byron Scott, a three-time NBA champion, about the vacant head coach position for the Los Angeles Lakers. In his response, Scott suggested that LeBron James should be considered as head coach for the Lakers.

“My recommendation for the next Laker coach, and not out of the eight or nine names that I’ve heard, his name wasn’t on there, is to make LeBron the coach. It’s obvious to me, at least, that he’s making a lot of decisions in this organization. From a coaching standpoint to a player standpoint. So if you’re going to allow him to make those decisions, sit on the bench and make those decisions as well. Be the head coach. The only person LeBron is going to trust is himself. And since you’re already making a lot of those decisions anyway, why not put him in that seat.” Byron Scott said.

Byron Scott Advocates for JJ Redick as Lakers’ Coach

Recently, the Los Angeles Lakers fired all of their coaching staff, including the head coach Darvin Ham, after the disappointing loss against the Denver Nuggets in the 1st round of the playoff series.

Despite Anthony Davis and LeBron James’ combined efforts, the Lakers were eliminated early in the playoffs. Anthony Davis and LeBron James had a remarkable season, with James averaging 25.7 points, 8.3 assists, and 7.3 rebounds in 71 games, and Davis averaging 24.7 points, 12.6 rebounds, and 3.5 assists in 76 games.

LeBron James has had ten head coaches, many of whom were famous during his NBA career. During a podcast, Byron Scott suggested that JJ Redick would be the most compatible head coach for LeBron James. Scott explained that James is at ease with Redick, citing a recent podcast episode that the two did together as evidence of their excellent rapport.
