Frank Vogel Sees Lakers Closing Games With Anthony Davis At Center 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Oct 27, 2019 9:13 pm

Frank Vogel said he envisions the Los Angeles Lakers closing out games with Anthony Davis at center.


“I envision us closing a lot of games” with Anthony Davis playing the 5," said Vogel in the leadup to their Sunday night game against the Hornets.


Davis, who played center in the Lakers' win over the Jazz, said he didn't mind playing the role if it made sense. Davis had previously expressed interest in staying at power forward.

So this is how Vogel ends up getting fired and Kidd takes over.

Come Christmas time Davis gets sick of being put at center and complains. Lakers brass freak out about losing him in Free Agency, so they can Vogel and instate Kidd; who has been telling Davis behind Vogel’s back that he wouldn’t play Davis at center.

Kidd is a bad coach but who knows.. Also if Davis wants to win a ring he has to play centre in streches.. There best line up is with Davis at centre he shouldn't be playing the whole game there except maybe in finals..

Oh I agree. The question is; does AD? What’s bigger AD’s desire to win a chip or his ego?
