Hotline Bling parody video roasts Byron Scott

1 Comment

Hotline Byron – a Hotline Bling parody video by Nick Angstadt – is the best thing to emerge from Byron Scott’s Lakers coaching tenure.

The lyrics of the song, which is from Mitch Kupchak’s point of view:

Byron stopped answering his cell phone

You’d think he would cause I’m his boss

Stopped answering his cell phone

Right after the Philly loss

He knows when that hotline blings

It could only mean one thing

I don’t know what Byron brings

I can’t even name one thing

He just keeps on letting Kobe shoot

Standing with his arms crossed on the sidelines

Randle, Russ, and Nance, JC need playing time

Instead he sits’em down, on the bench, how

Can he just keep on letting Kobe shoot?

Started jackin’ threes, and now he’s playing more

While our second pick sits in the 4th quarter

The Lakers have never looked like this before

Byron stopped answering his cell phone

You’d think he would cause I’m his boss

Stopped answering his cell phone

Right after the Philly loss

He knows when that hotline blings

It could only mean one thing

I don’t know what Byron brings

I can’t even name one thing

He just keeps on letting Kobe shoot,

I don’t think he’s the man out for this job

Even though our interviews were so long

Jimmy Buss and me just had him all wrong

Cause he just keep on letting Kobe shoot

I built him this young nucleus

He’s probably getting a “D-”

Now he benched D’Angelo and Julius

Byron stopped answering his cell phone

I think he knows what’s coming next

Stopped answering his cell phone

Might have to just send a text

He knows when that hotline bling

It can only mean one thing

He know when the phone to rings

He’ll lose those court-side seats

Cause these days all we do is

Try to guess if we’re tanking downwards for someone else

Speculate his lineups and wish that he’d play someone else

Rolling through our twitter feed and wish they’d mention someone else

Russell can’t be himself,

Randle can’t be himself,

Byron, why you always lying

These minutes that you’re supplying,

You just to play for Showtime and now that you’re home,

Please don’t take this wrong, we all wish that you were gone
