This has been the worst season in the long history of the Los Angeles Lakers and plans are already being made to get much better next season. On Monday, coach Byron Scott said that he is already figuring out which players he wants to keep around for next season. “I got a sense of a whole lot of them I wouldn’t want to be in a foxhole with. I think they’d end up shooting me in the back.”
Everyone knows that Kobe Bryant will be back but who knows who else will return to this roster. The Lakers are going to have a top-5 pick in the NBA Draft so they can get a possible young superstar. However, it is clear that Scott isn’t happy with how things are going with his team. He doesn’t want to go through a season like this one again.
There are just a few games left in this season and Scott needs his players to perform at a level where it at least looks like they are trying to win. The Lakers as a whole aren’t looked at in this way ever and never want to be the lovable losers again next season. It will be a completely different roster when the 2015-16 season arrives. Things are about to get very interesting.
