If the NBA values justice, what is depicted in this image will never become reality.
Did the Los Angeles Lakers communicate with Paul George or his agent Aaron Mintz in a way that measures up to the NBA’s standard for tampering?
I have no idea, but the Pacers believe so.
Here is what we do know:
- Somehow or another Mintz and his client came to the conclusion that George would leave the Pacers for the Lakers when his contract expires in 2018.
- The rest of the NBA learned that George planned to leave for the Lakers, and the result for the Pacers was an evisceration of his trade value.
