I still think George will end up in Philly.
Lakers will need to trade Lonzo because that's a circus you don't need when you're contending.
I'd be interested to see if they can get Portland to consider trading Dame for Lonzo+Kuzma.
I am pretty surprised by this take. George says he wants to go to LA years ago, they actually get good and will have a max slot and he moves the furthest possible spot from his hometown?
That would be a head scratcher.
If he really doesn't care about basketball and just wants to be in LA then cool. If the Lakers already have Kawhi and LeBron, what role is there for George? He'd be the 3rd option.
He could go to Philly and make a huge difference for them. Also, with LeBron out of the conference he would have a great shot at making the Finals.
In the West, even if the Lakers have Kawhi, Bron, and PG, they'd be one of three superteams out there.
Philly makes a lot more sense for PG from a basketball standpoint. I guess it depends how much he just wants a fun LA lifestyle and doesn't care if he's the 3rd option with a lower chance of actually making the Finals.
