Pacers forward Paul George took to Instagram last weekend to say thanks coach Frank Vogel, who will not return with Indiana next season and is now one of the most coveted men in the coaching ranks.
To one of the most influential men in my life! Our relationship and love doesn't end here.. Thank you for the journey and the memories we shared together! This pic sums up our relationship the best.. You talk I listen… And we figure it out together! Look forward to the wink the first basket I make while you're coaching against me #Togetherness
Vogel took over as Pacers coach three months into George’s rookie season in January 2011 and saw the 6-foot-9 forward grow into the the All-Star he’s today. Together, they won five playoff series with a team that hadn’t make the second round since 2005.
