Byron Scott Sides With LeBron James, NBA’s Play-In Tourney Is A Terrible Idea!
#gossip #drama #hollywood #celebrity
Remember, King James teed off on the NBA’s postseason rule for 2021 earlier this week … saying, “Whoever came with that s*** needs to be fired.”
Los Angeles Lakers
We spoke with Scott outside Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills about James’ take … and while the ex-player/coach says nobody needs to be canned over the concept, he makes it clear he thinks the idea sucks.
“I agree with him … it should be the first 8 teams just like it’s been for so many years,” Scott tells us. “I don’t believe in that play-in and all that stuff.”
Byron says it’s obvious why guys like the current 8-seed Warriors would welcome the idea … simply because it gives them a better shot at making the playoffs.
While the current 6-seed Lakers are a sneeze away from being forced into the play-in tournament, Scott says L.A. fans should take a chill pill … ’cause it’ll be “nearly impossible” for them to be sent home early.
“When LeBron gets back and he’s healthy, Anthony Davis is back healthy, they’re too good.”
He added … “They were together all last year. They know each other well enough. They know what they gotta do, so I’m not worried about it one bit.”
Scott thinks the Lakers — despite struggling with injuries and bad losses late into the season — can “absolutely” repeat as champions in 2021 … and has full faith in the organization.
We also asked how the Showtime Lakers would fare in the play-in tourney … and Lakers fans are gonna love his response!!
