It was a dramatic start to the 2019 NBA off-season for the Los Angeles Lakers, but head coach Frank Vogel is focused on bringing LeBron James and the young core back into the championship.
After a month of coaching, the Lakers finally made birds. Although the 45-year-old was obviously not the first choice, he is extremely optimistic about the new opportunity after the 2018-19 NBA season.
At the beginning of his first season, Vogel must develop a system that offers the best possible opportunities for James and the young core. While there were times when they played well together in the first year, Anthony Davis's injuries and trading rumors have completely destroyed any chance of building chemistry on the court.
While Vogel likes to study the list, he shared his first impressions of James, Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, and Josh Hart about Lakers :
"I really enjoy studying the roster and formulating a plan."

At a distance, Bird's assessment of James and the Young Core applies. At this stage of James' career, Bird notices his "wisdom on the basketball court" and expects a catch-up year 2 after 27 games missed.
While everyone knows how good James is on the court when he's healthy Bird some really encouraging words about Ingram, Ball, Kuzma and Hart.
Bird is impressed with Ingram's track and athletics and looks forward to teaching him the habits of winning.
Regarding Ball, Vogel calls him "one of the most unique players I've ever studied" and wants the Lakers to play off-limits with his selflessness.
Vogel also praised Kuzma's sophisticated offensive play in only his second season and Hart's ability to "dribble, pass, shoot and guard".
If the Lakers Will not Do It When you exchange the young core, it will be interesting to see how Bird evolves in their third and fourth seasons. In order to maximize James' abilities as a passerby, he needs gunners, and the hope is that everyone in this area can improve for the 2019-20 NBA season. A better idea if Ingram, Ball, and Kuzma To fully exploit your star potential. If any of them can, the Lakers should be able to end their six-year playoff drought and prepare for lasting success.
