is one of the most heralded shooters and finishers in league history. His run with the great Laker teams of the 80s proved he was a winner. Scott came from Arizona State as he 4th pick overall in the draft and was the perfect piece missing for Showtime. So the Lakers went out and got him. Trading Norm Nixon to the Clippers for Scott before he played a minute Scott was the perfect complement to Magic in the backcourt.
A great shooter and even better finisher who could guard quick point guards, Scott was a huge part of the Lakers success. He never really got the credit he deserved as no all-star game appearances will attest. Scotts playing career probably doesnt warrant inclusion but a stellar coaching career has at least kept him on the map and will keep him in consideration.
