Laker fans, if this season wasn’t a disappointment one, it just got a lot worse. After serving two seasons with the Lakers, the organization has decided to let go of head coach, Byron Scott.

The Lakers have had consecutive losing seasons, this season topping their worst losing record in franchise history. They missed the NBA playoffs for the past few years, only making their last appearance in 2013. They have had several changes to the organization such as firing several coaches, which include Mike D’Antoni and now Byron Scott. For Laker players and fans, it has been a roller coaster ride this past couple of seasons. Now that the 2015-16 season has officially ended for Lakers, they will need to figure out who will become the next head coach of this prestigious organization. Stakes are pretty high for these coaching positions with Kobe Bryant recently playing his final game.

Some coaches that have expressed interest in coaching the Lakers have been, assistant coach of the Golden State Warriors Luke Walton, former Knicks coach Derek Fisher, Scott Brooks, and a couple others. Now, the question that all fans are searching for is who will get the position? Who will become the next coach of the Lakers? Can the Lakers make the playoffs this upcoming season? More updates to come as the Lakers start interviewing candidates for this position.
