After firing Luke Walton last month the Lakers went on an exhaustive coaching search and interviewed several candidates for the job.

Eventually, the team’s top two choices Monty Williams and Ty Lue decided not to take the job and former Pacers coach Frank Vogel entered the fray and was signed by the team.

Today Vogel was introduced as the Lakers head coach and in the press conference one reporter had the gall to ask Rob Pelinka about the team’s coaching search before “settling on Frank”.
