The Los Angeles Lakers new head coach Frank Vogel says he felt the support of LeBron James right from the beginning and hopes they both can create something special:

“I did feel support right from the start from LeBron. He’s always shown me a great deal of respect dating back to our battles when I was in Indiana and competing with the Heat in the conference finals, and coaching him in the All-Star Game.

He’s always shown me a great deal of respect, so I felt like there would be a lot of support, and there was immediately and that’s continued on through up to this point. Hopefully we can work together to build something special,” Vogel said, per Sports Illustrated.
