None have a track record of any notable front office success. The Vogel hire feels like Jeanie Buss is going out of her way to troll LeBron to make it clear he isn’t in control, even if it means continued incompetence and chaos. So, why get LeBron in the first place? Guests:Chris Haynes, Chris Broussard, Fred VanVleet, and Stephen Jackson

We will continue to employ this successful marketing formula as we strive to reach our goal of 150,000 stay-over guests by 2021 from our primary source markets of the U.S., Canada, UK and the Caribbean.”St. Kitts’ marketing strategy maintains a particular focus on reaching individuals who are a match with the geo-demographic lifestyle data of its target visitors in key gateway markets to support airlift year-round as well as marquee island events including St. Kitts Music Festival.
