Former Los Angeles Lakers head coach, and player, Byron Scott had some advice for Lakers fans who can’t stop hating on their newest player, superstar forward LeBron James, who was signed to a lucrative deal this offseason, telling them to stop the hate.

“I bleed purple and gold – that’s my heart,” Scott said, during an interview with The Score’s Christopher Carson. “I’ve been with that organization for so many years. Magic Johnson is a close friend of mine and I was so excited for him and Jeanie Buss. I was extremely excited for them to get the best player in basketball to come to Los Angeles. Obviously, it has given a lot of energy to Los Angeles.”

“A lot of people are excited and you got some people that are haters,” Scott continued. “That’s everywhere you go and LeBron has dealt with that his entire career. But I tell the people of Los Angeles that if you want to win, wouldn’t you want the best player in the league on your team? Don’t hate on LeBron James. Congratulate this man that he went there and chose that organization for probably his last stop.”

Lakers’ Assistant Jesse Mermuys Says Michael Beasley One of the Best ISO Scorers

The Los Angeles Lakers certainly seem pleased with the signing of forward Michael Beasley, particularly assistant coach Jesse Mermuys who says that Beasley is one of the best isolation scorers in the league.

“Michael Beasley is one of the hardest guys to guard in the NBA,” Mermuys said, according to NBA.com’s Mike Trudell. “That’s just fact. He’s one of the best 1-on-1 players in the league. With his size and his scoring ability, he’s tough. Having a guy like that on your roster is always beneficial. You always need a bucket getter.”

Mermuys believes that Beasley’s talents will be a tremendous addition to the team.

“There are times guys just don’t have it going, there’s fatigue, there’s travel, there are schedule games that are a monster, there are back to backs,” the coach added. “There are so many things in the NBA where having a bucket getter is really valuable, so having Michael Beasley on your roster is a nice asset.”
