Lakers' Pitch to George Leaked
The Los Angeles Lakers' pitch for Paul George has been uncovered in a video script obtained by Sports Illustrated. George, 28, is an unrestricted free-agent after playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2017-18.
According to SI, the team's pitch reads:
"When you were just a kid
In your room
Dreaming from Palmdale
We were dreaming too.
While you dreamt, we built—built for your arrival
And while we dreamt, you built too
Becoming one of the world's greatest.
Life's most powerful dream are the one we realize ourselves.
The ones that turn us into legends.
That kid from Palmdale always knew it
Now the world will, too"
The playmaking wing is a Palmade, Ca. native and has long been linked to the Lakers organization.
