As the NBA season draws closer and closer, we’re getting to know more about what Los Angeles Lakers head coach Byron Scott thinks about the upcoming year. And a big part of his plan involves Kobe Bryant doing Kobe things. Scott recently told the Orange County Register’s Bill Oram: "I think Kobe even on bad days can average 20 points a game in this league." When it comes to Bryant, fans have severa
