Magic Johnson should work on giving Paul George more than a wink now that his Los Angeles Lakers have the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NBA draft.
George is originally from the Los Angeles area, can become a free agent in 2018 and is rumored to be dreaming about coming home to be a Laker. On April 21, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel asked Johnson what he would do if he saw George on vacation in Los Angeles.
It will be hard for the Lakers to not be attracted to drafting local kid Ball, of UCLA and Big Baller Brand fame. But George is a much bigger baller.
With all due respect to the NBA prospects, George is the best possible talent and steppingstone for the Hall of Famer and his 16-time NBA champion Lakers with a win-thirsty fan base.
