Byron Scott Calls Omri Casspi a ‘Pit Bull’
Enter new addition Omri Casspi, who coach Byron Scott likens to a pit bull. Whether the 6-foot-9 small forward can supply the offense the club needs from the wing remains unknown. But if the intensity of purpose he demonstrated Sunday in the annual Wine and Gold scrimmage is any indication, losses won’t go down as easy.
“[Casspi] is an intense competitor and I like that about him,” Scott said. “He has his fun after practice … but when he’s in practice he’s the same way.
“We need some guys like that. I always put it this way: We don’t need Chihuahuas, we don’t need poodles, we don’t need German Shepherds. We need pit bulls and it’s good to have a few of them. I think he is one of them. If you have a bunch of Chihuahuas you are going to be in trouble.”
