Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel has a great opinion of four-time NBA champion LeBron James and gave him the ultimate compliment. Vogel praised LeBron for everything he does on the basketball floor.
The head coach is impressed with LeBron’s shooting and he even said that the superstar may be the best shooter on the roster.
The 36-year-old has worked on his jumper for a really long time. He looks really comfortable launching shots from downtown in the last few seasons. LeBron is averaging 6.3 triples attempted per game with his team in the 2019-20 NBA season.
The coronavirus pandemic affected the entire basketball world. LeBron’s season was limited to 67 games. King James had no problem with this as he attempted career-high 425 shots from distance.
On Tuesday, LeBron did his magic against the Houston Rockets. The 16-time All Star scored 26 points on 10-of-20 shooting from the field, eight rebounds and five assists in the 117-100 win over James Harden’s team.
Frank Vogel respects LeBron, gave him the best compliment
The king of basketball joined the Lakers to win a title. He couldn’t win one in his first season with the team. LeBron suffered a groin injury on Christmas Day and missed 17 games. But, things improved in his second season with the team. LeBron, Anthony Davis and the rest of the guys won a championship and they did that inside a bubble.
The Lakers front office signed Marc Gasol, Dennis Schroder, Wesley Matthews, and Montrezl Harrell to win another championship. NBA experts agree that the Lakers have a good chance to win back-to-back titles. LeBron and his teammates have to stay healthy. This may be a big concern, because Davis sustained a new injury in Tuesday’s win over the Rockets. He injured his toe, but his X-Rays came negative. This is good news for the team despite the fact that Davis will probably miss a couple of games.
Vogel and his superstars discussed load management. It’s more than obvious that AD and LeBron will get their time off in order to stay fresh for the postseason.
