Frank Vogel opened up about the one thing that has surprised him about the Los Angeles Lakers this season.

Vogel said he is surprised by how well the Lakers have played defensively, given the short offseason and the several additions to the roster.

“It’s not always great, but compared to the rest of the league we’re rated No. 1. That’s a little surprising, with a lot of new guys and coming off of a championship less than three and a half months ago.

I wasn’t sure what type of urgency and disposition we’d have early in the season, but it’s been done at a pretty high level. That’s probably the biggest thing that I’m pleased with,” Vogel said, via Lakers Nation.

The Lakers have the best defensive rating in the NBA, with 105.2 points per 100 possessions.
