    Is Frank Vogel a good fit as Head Coach for the Lakers?

      Vogel can coach defense and is good with younger players.

          Frank Vogel is white, therefore he is smarter than any of the players on the Lakers.

                  LeBron James is “going to give frank vogel a chance”
                  A player is gonna give the coach a chance 😂😂😂

                    Jason Kidd has not been a good coach in the NBA. Let just get that out there.

                              Brad Stevens is amazing with role players, maybe Frank Vogel is better when he had an established star

                                That's a good point about MDA. Vogel isn't automatically a terrible un-hirable coach just because things didn't go well in Orlando. Vogel has earned a chance

                                  Frank Vogel is one of the best X and O coaches in the league. That's what the Lakers need. Simple.

                                  But you can't make a show out of the simple truth.

                                    The problem here is when Broussard uses phrases like, "Lebron is going to give Vogel a chance". Lebron is the help. Period. No matter how great he is, he does NOT own the team.

                                    • omieg89

                                      Yeah but trust me, a moody Lebron is a team killer. So you want to keep him happy or at least motivated because he will torpedo your season. And you might think that he will only be hurting himself by doing that but nope. He still collects his stats while losing and the media plus his fans cover up his tracks.

                                    No Ty Lue 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👉🏾LeBron left him in Cleveland for a reason😅!!!

                                    • omieg89

                                      This might sound crazy but I think Ty Lue is the type of coach you need to coach star players. OKC should get rid of Donovan and hire Lue. He won't be afraid to tell Russ to scale back. Lue has had to coexist with MJ, Shaq, Kobe, Lebron, Kyrie, KG, Pierce, Ray Allen, Blake Griffin, and Chris Paul. He isn't intimidated by stars.

                                    Stop defending Lebron. Haha wow

                                      Lebron respects no coach. Stop it!

                                        Maybe Kurt Rambis isn't senile and knows what he is doing. He certainley knows more than Jeanie Buss does.

                                          Frank Vogel is a fresh face, but why bring in Jason Kidd as an assistant when you know he's wanting to call the shots. Doesn't make sense to put in Kidd, unless he humbly wants to become the assistant, he just ain't that type. Unless the Lakers know Kidd will just come in, if Vogel turns scapegoat.

                                            Luke was very stubborn about having his guys for assistant coaches, even when front office wanted changes. Perhaps their thinking is they want to have some control on those assistants and want to make it clear from day one.

                                          Lol Kawhi ain’t going to play with the lakers. Y’all keep dreaming. Kawhi hates the spotlight, you think he wants to go play with bron? So when they win bron gets all the praise but if they lose everyone else gets the blame. Not happening.

                                                    By hiring a white coach the Lakers are saying Lebron James GO AWAY!

                                                      Lebron's totally hands off but the media repeatedly says the new Coach has to have Bron's respect. Where does the media get that information 🤔

                                                      Chris Carter made arguments against Vogel. You can use those same arguments against Kidd and Lue? What are their offensive systems? Lue won the 1st Championship for Cleveland and was fired 🤔. Milwaukee got better AFTER Kidd left.

                                                      They are going to spend the next three weeks doing Mock Drafts....just for the Lakers tho 😂😂

                                                        Love how he says Lebron is going to give him a chance, seriously. And Lebron isnt making decisions but keeping him in the loop really lol

                                                          By this time next year I expect the media to be changing their tune. #LakerNation

                                                            No I think Lebron is just happy that part is over so he can try and recruit some one. It's hard to do that with all the dysfunction but it's even harder without a coach. Who knows he might still ask for a trade before it's done..

                                                                    black players typically decide to trust/respect black coaches more. So it's a clever/cheap trick to over-employ them.

I am not joining the best player when I am chasing him or surpassing him. Kyrie wants to run the show in his own team. Olay is staying put. His options are going to be maybe Jimmy Butler or Kemba Walker. I do not see any tom twenty five player joining him.

                                                                      • MichelleMyBelle

I just think he's such a great player how could he listen to another player that was never as talented as he is! I'm sure he respects those player coaches, but wait until an Ex-Player/coach tries to tell him what he's doing wrong or how to play!
