Frank Vogel reveals who he’d pick for NBA Coach of the Year

Frank Vogel, Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel would vote for Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens for NBA Coach of the Year.

The NBA season is set to restart on July 30 in Orlando after a four-month hiatus, and Vogel will do his best to try to lead the Lakers yet another NBA title.

However, teams like the Celtics could stand in their way of achieving that particular goal, with Stevens certainly having a roster capable of winning it all.

Perhaps that’s why Vogel would give his vote to Stevens if he could, and the Lakers coach made it clear about his favorite for the award, according to ClutchPoints’ Ryan Ward.

The Lakers had the second-best record in the NBA prior to the season being suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, the Celtics weren’t far behind with a 43-21 record on the season.

Obviously, winning a championship won’t be an easy task given the competition. Both teams will have to deal with several other intriguing challengers when it comes to winning the NBA title.

The Milwaukee Bucks have the best record in the league at 53-12 overall, while the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Clippers are second in their respective conferences.

No matter which two teams play for the championship in Orlando, how the league handles the health and safety protocols within the bubble figures to be one of the most interesting storylines.

The Lakers will play their first game against the Clippers, and the Celtics square off against the Bucks.
