“Los Angeles Lakers” head coach Frank Vogel sees LeBron James as the MVP of the current season. “You can’t tell me that anybody has had a better season than LeBron James this year,” he said after the Lakers’ practice on Friday.
James currently leads the league with an average of 30.0 points per game on 52.3 percent shooting from the field, 35.4 percent from distance and 75.8 percent from the free throw line, along with 8.2 rebounds and 6.3 assists in one game. He has participated in 54 of the 73 games of the “Lakers” so far.
“He deserves to be in the MVP conversation at least as much as any other player in the league,” Vogel said. is usually considered the most, so wins and losses are bound to hurt him in the election.”
With 31 wins and 42 losses, the Lakers are currently 10th in the Western Conference, and LA has won just 6 of 19 games without James. James isn’t even in the top 8 of the MVP race according to most bookies. Most likely, either Nikola Jokic, Joel Embiid or Giannis Antetokounmpo will receive the honors.
So the Lakers’ focus is more on the end of the season. “The bigger motivation for us the last nine games is how we’ve been playing,” Vogel said when asked what Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans means for the Lakers as the two teams meet in play- in the tournament.
While Russell Westbrook described the game as a “must win,” Vogel saw it a little differently. in the playoffs. habits are most important.”
