On Friday afternoon, the Lakers Twitter account was taken over by new head coach Byron Scott for a Q/A session with fans using the #AskByron hashtag. The new Los Angeles skipper took questions for close to an hour. Here are the ten best responses from Scott:

1. Which current Laker does Byron see himself in the most? The answer is pretty obvious to Scott.

2. If Kobe would be playing the post in Scott’s new offense for the Lakers? Will he have enough space to do so?

3. Any update on the rest of Scott’s coaching staff?

4. His thoughts on second-round draft pick Jordan Clarkson

5. First priority with this team and what will be (or what was) his first message to the team?

6. Any funny stories about Kobe as a rookie? Not really.

7. With Steve Nash and Jeremy Lin on the roster will Laker fans see a lot of Pick-N-Roll?

8. Favorite memory from his time playing with the Lakers?

9. What current NBA player Scott would like to play with? A rival

10. What does Scott think of new Laker forward Ed Davis and how does he plan to use him?

Bonus: Flip flops, sandals, or slip-ons?
