Lakers Conspiracy Theory? #lakers   #nba   #kobebryant  
Kobe Bryant got chastised for signing a 2-year $48.5 million extension in 2013. Technically he could have signed for more, but that was the Lakers’ offer. Bryant maligned as a selfish player throughout his career, swallowed future cap space and any hope of signing big free agents in the off seasons to come. That was …

As the Lakers trudge towards their 3rd consecutive failed season, all can be traced back to the top. After Phil Jackson retired as head coach in 2011, Jim Buss had the opportunity to court Jerry Sloan, Rick Adelman or even Coach K. Instead he fired any employee affiliated with Jackson and started a flurry of failed …

A Lakers Christmas Poem #lakers   #nba   #christmas  
‘Twas the night before Christmas, five years ago the Lakers were the best; Now simply they’re known as the Sixers of the West. If you told me before the season, we’d compete for the bottom three; I’d say you’re crazy, stop watching ESPN on TV. Ben Simmons is the target since we’re in full tank …

Millennials + Lakers #lakers  #nba #coaching #millennials  
The Lakers have plummeted to last place in the Western Conference and there's clear evidence the generational disconnect of the Lakers has led them there.

This may be Kobe Bryant's last season, but the Laker impacting the future more is Metta World Peace. Here's how Bryant can learn from World Peace's example.

Introduction
Author. I wrote a book based on my transition from Youth Pastor to Entrepreneur called The Startup Church. Jumping from the non-profit world to owning a business was a challenging, but the experience gives me credibility to help others make career changes.

Blogger. Two of my favorite hobbies are: leadership and sports. I’ve been able to combine both by writing for Lakers Nation, The Lake Show Life and Game 7 Network. I also turned my personal blog into a podcast called Winsight, which uses leadership in sports examples to help you win at the game of life.

Speaker. Nothing is more compelling than a great storyteller. I speak monthly at churches, schools and networking events. I get my inspiration from other exceptional communicators, especially through TED Talks.

I’m a Certified Professional Coach, have a MA in Organizational Leadership and a BA in Psychology.

I love connecting with people and exploring new opportunities/partnerships. Feel free to contact me at scott@growingforward.net
