Frank Vogel shared his thoughts on the early playoff exit of the defending champions Los Angeles Lakers.

Vogel was ‘proud’ of his players for their effort, despite the early playoff exit, amid injury struggles and chemistry issues.

“Frank Vogel says he told his players that he’s “proud” of them battling through the unfortunate circumstances,” Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation reports.

The Lakers were struggling with injuries and never managed to be in full strength for a series of games and especially in the playoffs.
