Eighteen years after helping guide Kobe Bryant through his rookie season as a veteran teammate, Byron Scott believes he is the right person to coach the star guard in his final seasons before retirement.

Scott sat down with general manager Mitch Kupchak and vice president of player personnel Jim Buss on Tuesday, and was confident about how the meeting went.

“I don’t feel I’m a very arrogant guy, but I feel like I am the perfect guy for this job,” Scott told the “Max & Marcellus” show on ESPNLA 710 Radio on Thursday. “I got a great relationship with Kobe. I know the team, know the roster. I watched them all season long and I just think it would be a great fit.”
