With free agency essentially done, fans will now start discussing who should be in the starting lineup. LeBron James, Danny Green and Anthony Davis are locked into the starting five. Kyle Kuzma is likely to join them as well, but the fifth spot is up for debate.
Reports suggested LeBron was going to play the 1.
Now those reports are being refuted, by the supposed man in charge.
During an appearance on ESPN when the Lakers were preparing to face the New York Knicks during the Las Vegas Summer League, Vogel shot down reports of James starting at point guard.
Frank Vogel on ESPN just shot down the LeBron starting point guard rumor. “There have been no decisions made on our starting lineup. No imminent plan to start LeBron at the point guard spot. A lot of different lineup and combinations have been discussed but it’s way too early.”

Not sure who leaked the Point Guard story. Is Vogel already experiencing a power struggle before his first game?
Seems like it.
Can’t be easy to coach a LeBron lead team.
Having James start at point guard has positives to it, but he needs to be surrounded by a specific group of players to make it work.
