Paul George is still under contract with the Indiana Pacers but that hasn’t stopped many NBA fans from dreaming about luring the talented forward to their teams this summer. The most prominent fan base longing for George to arrive is the Los Angeles Lakers, as Magic Johnson is sending not-so-subtle messages and George is on the record as being frustrated about Indiana’s direction. Throw in the fact that Larry Bird is no longer the man in charge for the Pacers, along with the fact that George is a California native, and many have tried to connect the dots with regard to a potential trade with George in the coming weeks.
While nothing is likely to happen until at least the 2017 NBA Draft, George could not escape his professional intrigue on Monday, even during a trip to Disneyland. In short, Lakers fans were (very) eager to let him know that they would like him to arrive in an effort to save the franchise.
In fact, people were reportedly arriving in waves to send their (selfish) regards.
