The Lakers’ Embarrasing Pitch To Paul George Was Leaked


In last year’s offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers were fined $500,000 for tampering with Paul George. This was mainly because of Lakers president Magic Johnson, who more or less tried to publicly convince George to join the Lakers.

This year, they’re after George again. But this year, the Lakers’ pitch was leaked to Sports Illustrated, and it is beyond cringy.


“The person recruited to do the voiceover was told that it should be “less Morgan Freeman/Denzel Washington, and more Jamie Foxx”?

The pitch entitled “Two Dreams” makes hints about who the pitch is for.

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”


Corny enough to be on a Hallmark card. One question remains; did Kobe write it?
