The Los Angeles Lakers announced today they have parted ways with head coach Frank Vogel.

The Lakers point guard Russell Westbrook discusses his relationship with Frank Vogel: “I think it’s unfortunate, to be honest … I’ve never had an issue with any player, any coach, and staff members.”

Westbrook mentions he sent a bottle of champagne to coach Vogel’s room for Vogel and his wife’s anniversary.

“I’m not sure what his issue was with me,” Russ said.
