Byron Scott also upset with Lakers' celebration
Injured Lakers star Kobe Bryant was not the only person upset with the way the team celebrated a win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday. Apparently, head coach Byron Scott was unhappy with the display as well, ESPN's Baxter Holmes reports.
Scott didn't see the players celebrating until it was aired on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Monday. When Kimmel showed it to Bryant, he sat there with a none-too-pleased look on his face. Scott's reaction was more of the same.
"Kobe's reaction was pretty much my reaction when I was watching it," Scott said. "I was just shaking my head like, 'I can't believe this.' "
Scott went on to say he wasn't mad at his players for the way they acted, but he was disappointed.
"As a coach of this team I was very disappointed," he said. "That's not how I act, win or losses. I want our guys to know that."
As far as discipline goes, it's not expected that Scott will drop the hammer in any way since he's already addressed the matter with his team.
The Lakers are 14-41 and the No. 14 seed in the Western Conference.
