Lakers coach Byron Scott on "noise" from fans: "I block it out. The one thing I've always said, and a great old coach told me this a long time ago, 'If you start listening to the fans, you're going to be sitting with them next.' So I don't pay a whole lot of attention to fans because fans are fans. Fans aren't at practice every day. They don't know the preparation. They don't know what goes into it. They just see the end product. So they have no idea. They all have their own opinions. But, yeah, I don't put a lot of stock into it."
