The Los Angeles Lakers have started a new era under head coach Byron Scott, but things might have been mighty different in Hollywood if talks between Scott and the Los Angeles Clippers had bore fruit.

Doc Rivers was traded from the Boston Celtics to the Clippers back in June of 2013, putting an end to talks between Scott and the franchise. Regardless, Scott remains quite happy to be where he is at:
