Byron Scott may have enough job security to make it through the 2015-16 season without being fired, but it does not change the fact that most fans of the Los Angeles Lakers are upset with him for everything from his lack of communication with the team's young players to his inability and unwillingness to rein in Kobe Bryant. When you combine these factors with the team's worst start in franchise history at 3-19, well on pace to set a new franchise low in victories for the third consecutive season in a year the team could lose its draft pick to the Philadelphia 76ers anyway should it fall outside of the top-three, you have a recipe for a lot of angry people.
So like all angry Twitter mobs, this group of fans have decided to express themselves in the one way they know how: through music. Yes, you read that right. First, we have a full, Weird-Al style parody of Drake's hit song "Hotline Bling" called "Hotline Byron" from YouTuber Nick Angstadt:

When people suggest music as a coping mechanism for life's stresses, I don't think this is generally what they mean, but whatever works, I guess. Stay weird, #LakersTwitter
