LeBron James, Frank Vogel discuss the Los Angeles Lakers season restarting at Walt Disney World, including remembering Kobe Bryant. July 20)
LEBRON JAMES: A day doesn't go by where I don't think about him. A day doesn't go by where our organization does-- does not remember him, you know, and think about, you know, not only Kob, but Gigi, and Vanessa, and the other girls. You know, they're a part of this family, just as big as anybody in this organization's history. So we still wear, you know, 2 4 and 8, and the number 2 with pride and with remembrance of how great they were.
FRANK VOGEL: You know, obviously, it's been great having LeBron on our side, you know, after years of going against him. But in particular, when we get to the playoff environment, you know, I've just seen how he is this year. With some of the bigger regular season games, how he's just more mentally locked in, more vocal, more making sure everybody else is locked in. And, you know, I anticipate that come playoff time, we'll see that all be done at an enhanced level and looking forward to being a part of that.
