    Frank Vogel named Lakers Coach

    Former Pacers HC was hired today, Jason Kidd adds to assist total:

    Lakers name Frank Vogel Head Coach, Jason Kidd assistant- Bleacher Report

    Lue wasn’t interested based on low-ball offer(which Vogel reportedly accepted) and anxiety, presumably rooted beneath Allen Iverson’s right foot and his time as Cavs lead man.

    I don’t know... as we’ve often wondered here, isn’t this position more of a formality?

    Unrelated: Kyrie to LA talks have resurfaced. Lonzo to Boston in sign-and-Trade?

    Edit: Obviously Vogel was NAMED head coach, he did not make the selection for them in the manner in which the thread title could be interpreted.

    UCLA and Lakers had a hard time hiring a coach. Does no one want to coach in LA?

    Vogel the fall guy so Kidd can take over after the all star break.

    Be the person people are talking about, not the person talking about other people.

    It’s not LA that they don’t like. At the end of the day LA is still probably at the top of the list of places where coaches want to end up, but there is so much disfunction in the Lakers organization and with UCLA the administration was having a hard time convincing people they were invested into basketball. If Doc Rivers decided to retire today, the Clippers wouldn’t have nearly the hard time the Lakers did finding a coach. So it’s not LA imo.

    I know it’s not the city of LA but 2 of the most storied basketball teams in history have had trouble filling their positions.

    It truly shows how dysfunctional they both are right now.
