Frank Vogel has gotten a bit cryptic on Anthony Davis starting at the center position. The Lakers are getting ready to start the season 5 days from now against the Golden State Warriors. So far, the preseason has not been kind to the Lakers who failed to win a game out of the 6 tries that they had. But according to most of the players, this is not something that they are worried about. It is the preseason after all.
Still though, the fact that they have been struggling so much has caught the eyes of some fans who expected total domination. It is likely that they will figure it out when the regular season comes and eventually will get back to the winning column.
Now, some people are asking about Anthony Davis and which role he will play in the offensive. Will he finally move to the center position? We will have to see.
“Really not gonna impact much the blend that we want to play,” said Vogel on where the Lakers start Anthony Davis.

The Lakers are looking at a different roster than last season with Russell Westbrook being the likely starter at the point guard position. According to Westbrook, he is very excited to be with the Lakers.
“Being from LA, you always wish that you could play for your home team,” Westbrook said. “That’s definitely something that always circled around in my mind. Maybe one day? But I always would come back and be like, ‘Ah, that probably won’t happen.’ I just had to wait and see. But now that we’re here, I’m going to take full advantage of it.”
“LeBron is one of the best players to play this game, and his ability to do everything on the floor allows me to just figure it out,” Westbrook said. “I’m coming to a championship-caliber team, and my job is to make his game easy for him, and I’ll find ways to do that. As it pertains to ball-handling, it really doesn’t matter. There’s many different ways you can impact the game without having the ball in your hands. I’ve been able to do that for a number of years, and we’ll figure it out.”
