4 rumors in this storyline

LeBron and his coaches have been a storyline at each of his stops, and not always in a pleasant way. What do you anticipate? Frank Vogel: I only know how he’s been with me. That’s the only measuring stick I’m going to use. I’m not going to look at how it’s been with his past coaches. That really doesn’t concern me. I want to shape my own opinion of him as a person and one of the greatest ever. I’m going to take my approach and work together with him to hopefully do something special.

Vogel won’t reveal much about his private conversations with James.

He’s always shown me a great deal of respect, so I felt like there would be a lot of support, and there was immediately and that’s continued on through up to this point.
