Los Angeles Lakers head coach Byron Scott said he’s planning to work about 16 to 18 hours per day next season.
“If I could say by hours as a coach in all the other places I’ve been and I was putting in 10-12 hour days, this is going to be like 16-18 hours because I bleed purple and gold,” Scott said, according to Lakers Nation.
He added: “This is an organization that I have so much pride in and so much love for that, again, it’s no disrespect to the other organizations that I coached ‘cus I gave them everything I have, but this one is special and I’m going to go overboard to make sure we get back to where we belong.”
The Lakers this offseason have signed guard Jeremy Lin, forward Carlos Boozer, and resigned Nick Young.
For Kobe Bryant’s part, he said that the goal is winning a championship.
“Championship. Always. Always. That’s the ultimate. When you stand at the bottom of the mountain your goal is to get to the top of the mountain, you don’t just want to go half way. So, it’s always championship,” Bryant said, according to FanSided.
