The Los Angeles Lakers dropped what many considered a “must-win” game in Head Coach Frank Vogel’s bid to keep his job. While things are unravelling, LeBron James has an opportunity to publicly speak up on Vogel’s behalf yet has not done so. Doug is convinced this means Vogel will lose his job sooner rather than later unless and until King James wields his mighty influence to keep Vogel employed.

Doug Gottlieb: “Frank Vogel is getting fired. Not if, but when. If LeBron wanted to save him, LeBron could save him. If LeBron wanted to side with him, LeBron would side with him... LeBron did not jump over and put his arm around him.”
