Frank Vogel said in the interview process the Lakers asked him if he would be open to adding people to his staff that they'd like and that's where Jason Kidd entered the picture. He said he wanted a collaborative effort and he says the model that has worked best for him is to have a former player on his staff to help deliver his message to players. Vogel said he had a lengthy conversation with Kidd during the interviewing process. He says he trusts in his growing relationship with Kidd, believes in building respect and a positivity on the staff and that he cannot worry about looking over his shoulder when asked about Kidd potentially looming as possible replacement.
