    From streets to sideline, Lakers' Byron Scott was always tough

    ASK IRA: Can Dwyane Wade become Flash again?
    Q: Ira, I like what I heard -- a lot -- from Dwyane Wade about his plans after LeBron James left. He looks in better shape, with a chip on his shoulder. Heat fans still remember what he can do without LeBron. Maybe we haven't see the last of Flash. --...
