Vogel Western Conf. Coach of the Month!! 

Post#1 » by XXBKXX » Tue Dec 3, 2019 4:29 am

Im glad Vogel is finally getting some recognition for the work hes done so far. After losing the first game of the year, Frank rallied the troops and coached them to the best franchise start for the Lakers (17-2). Frank wasnt the first choice, but just like an undervalued player off the bench, Vogel stayed ready and has taken full advantage of his opportunity. Im convinced more than ever we lucked out on missing on Ty.

Its like night and day watching a seasoned coach in Vogel vs what we had in Luke. Lukes offense was vanilla at best.. and his hockey lineup switches were maddening. Frank thankfully subscribes to staggered substitutions-- having either LBJ or AD on the floor at all times. Our defensive schemes are much better and the ATO sets are next level compared to Lukes.

Frank has done a good job thus far.. interesting to see how he gets everyone to respond to the last loss heading into this tough month..

Lakers have the best record after a very light schedule, (26th is strength of schedule (?)) with two superstars fully committed to play defense and play like 35 mins/game. I am not saying Vogel have not done anything to contribute to this team. I like his half game adjustments but there's still issues with this team their over reliance on James and AD.
Luke Walton is no Phil Jackson or Pops but he has done a pretty good job so far, just one more loss compared to 8th place- healthier Suns, missing Fox for 10 games and Bagley for 18 games.
Celtics Ainge said it best, Lakers have a much better chemistry right now compared to last season when the younger players think they were as good a James, this time, there's a clear hierarchy and they are more organized.
Last season, James wasn't as committed on defense, Ball,Rondo, Hart and Ingram missed a ton of games and the trade rumors completely demoralized the team.
Also don't forget Vogel's Orlando Magic was really bad and vastly improved on defense when he left the team.
