LeBron James will have his head coach for the All-Star Game.
With the Los Angeles Lakers win Thursday night, Frank Vogel and his staff, including assistant coach Jason Kidd, will coach Team LeBron at the All-Star Game on Sunday, February 16:
The 36-9 Lakers hold the best record in the Western Conference, 4.5 games ahead of the Utah Jazz (31-13) and five games ahead of the Los Angeles Clippers (31-14). Only the scorching-hot Milwaukee Bucks (39-6) have a better record this season.
