Any hope the Lakers had of magically becoming a playoff contender in Byron Scott's first season in charge has faded away in the opening weeks of the NBA season, but Scott is remaining strong in the face of adversity, according to reports

The Lakers boss issued a stern warning to his players on Sunday night after the Lakers succumbed to their ninth defeat of the season just ten games in.

It wasn't just the scoreline that got to Scott following the Lakers 136-115 defeat against Golden State Warriors, it was the manner of the defeat. And post-game, Scott spoke and criticized his players while admitting changes will have to be made.

Brutal response

Defense is the problem 

A lot has been made of Kobe Bryant's continued insistence on taking on a mass amount of shots per game this season. As a result, the Lakers offense had been disjointed and lacking in balance.

Scott was asked post-game about the Lakers' problems on offense, but the ruthless coach was far more interested in ripping into the Lakers' horrific defense, which has been useless so far this season.
