I'm usually pessimistic on beating the Cavs even if the C's got another star...but if we had George.....

66-59 at halftime. Cavs shoot 61%, yet they're only up 7.

I could very well see Toronto knocking off Cleveland in the 2nd round this year with how bad their defense is.

Paul George is a beast. I would hate to see him as a Laker.
Danny Ainge got fleeced.

Paul George is awesome.

Why in the world would he want to go to the Lakers?

He and The Balls can "have" LA.

Boston has such a bright present AND future so it's inexplicable to me why PG would insist on going there, from what I've read.

Magic is great and all but he's not suiting up for them anytime soon - even though he'd probably be a good 6th man Point Guard for them even NOW.

Paul George has also said he greatly admires the Celtics' team culture.

He may want to play for LA, but I suspect he would also welcome playing in Boston.

Paul George clearly wants to win, his best chance is to do that here.

I dont understand why people act like its a foregone conclusion that Paul George becomes a laker. Weve seen this with like every major free agent and like 90% of them dont end up in LA.

Indiana is awful.

Yes .....but LeBron is still,logging a lot of court time .  Without him Cavs go no where.

That awful day is coming his way.   As it does all of us .

I hope I'm wrong and you're right.

Magic Johnson can sell a thirsty man a glass of sand in a desert, though. He has that kind of allure.

The man was successful IN Basketball and OUT of it. Dr. Jerry Buss (RIP) reportedly said that he hoped that both he and Jeannie would run the Lakers one day and here we are.

Deja Vu.

As much as I love Magic for the person AND player he is I would not be surprised if he could lure PG13 but I sincerely hope I'm wrong and you're right.

Thing.  Is we can't pull a NY Knicks trade like they did with Melo ...give 85 percent of their best players away to acquire him.....then it s all for nothing for him.

That's Danny's problem , how to get George  type,player without trading Smart , Crowder   Zizic and Brown, It and Horford.
