Vince Carter Releases Truth Bomb on LeBron James, Lakers Doubters
“I’m not asked, I’m told that we’re old…if you’re producing at a high level, it doesn’t matter how old you are. I don’t care for the narrative.” Frank Vogel said.
“I’m not asked, I’m told that we’re old…I don’t really like the narrative,” said the Lakers coach. “I don’t. These guys can play. We have great players on our team. Yes, some of them are towards the end of their career. But, they’re still producing at a high level. If you’re producing at a high level, it doesn’t matter how old you are.”
First, Vince Carter also has some interesting things to say.
“Oh, I love to hear it. I love to hear it. I’ve been saying this for a lot of years. We don’t look at the years. We look at the player. What are your eyes telling you? Your eyes are telling you that player can produce. Not because of their age. Because they can get it done – regardless of their age.”
“I get it. You have a lot of young guys and that’s the way the league has gone. But I walked into the NBA many, many years ago when there was two or three young guys and all were veterans. A coach walked in and it was understood. And that’s what Frank Vogel walks into. He walks into a training camp now, and guys understand how to play.”
