NBA News: Los Angeles Lakers want to finish season with Head Coach Frank Bird

The Los Angeles Lakers are planning to finish the season despite recently disappointing results with Head Coach Frank Vogel. This is apparent from a report by Adrian Wojnarowski (espn).

Accordingly, the Front Office of the Lakers at the assessment of Vogels JobStatus’ also consider that in person by Anthony Davis the second best player of the team has missed a large part of the season due to injury and will be missing several weeks. Also from offseason new access Kendrick Nunn, who has previously missed the complete season, had actually expected the organization a positive impact.

So the responsible persons in L.a. Do not feel that a discharge of coach bird would make a difference at the present time. Instead, so Woj, the Lakers would like to go with bird on the sideline “through the rest of the season”.

Already in mid-January, a lot of speculation circulated that bird is just before a discharge. The master coach of 2020, however, could hold on his post, anyway, the cadric composition is more than the big problem of the Lakers this season, not necessarily the coaching of bird.

In the past games, however, Lakers did not collect arguments for their coach. Since the all-star weekend, the team around Lebron James has lost all four games, including embarrassing blowout bankruptcies against the Pelicans and the clippers in which purple and gold had a lot of use missed.
