Paul George Missing Out On All-NBA Honors May Be Good News For The Lakers

Paul George Missing Out On All-NBA Honors May Be Good News For The Lakers

The 2017 All-NBA teams have been announced and one name conspicuously missing from the list is that of the Indiana Pacers’ All-Star Paul George. The 27-year-old small forward not only missed out on the prestigious honor but also lost out on an estimated $200 million pay check. However, the Pacers may end up being the biggest loser. With less money on the table, the “Paul George to Lakers” rumor has gained even more traction. The designated veteran-player extension rule rewards players who earn awards such as Most Valuable Player, Defensive Player of the Year, or an All-NBA selection....

Magic Johnson says Kobe Bryant wants to help him rebuild the Lakers

Could the two legendary former members of Los Angeles’ backcourt team up to restore the franchise to glory? Kobe Bryant finished his career over a year ago, and from basically the moment it ended people have been asking one question: When is he coming back to the Lakers? Lakers President of Basketball Operations Magic Johnson has been chief among those openly theorizing about when Bryant might return. Johnson recently hung out with Bryant at a Los Angeles Sparks game, and has been saying since February (aka before he even had his current job) how Bryant would be the first call he would...

LeBron James named to all-NBA first team for record-tying 11th time

LeBron James tied a league record on Thursday, joining Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone as the only players to be chosen to the all-NBA first team 11 times. But if James is looking for more fuel for the playoffs, he was not named to the first team on all 100 ballots, with the Houston Rockets’ James Harden the only player unanimously chosen by a global panel of sports writers and broadcasters. Votes for the first, second and third teams are awarded points on a 5-3-1 basis and James received 498. James has also made the second team twice and has been on the list each of the last 13...

Paul George misses out on All-NBA teams, makes it easier for Lakers to acquire him

A Los Angeles homecoming for the Indiana All-Star just became much more likely. Indiana Pacers forward Paul George has missed out on all three All-NBA teams, the NBA announced Thursday. George’s absence from any of the three All-NBA teams is relevant to the Lakers because it means he is not eligible for a designated player extension, which Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report notes would have allowed George to extend his contract five more years for an estimated $207 million. Instead, George is only been able to sign a five-year contract with the Pacers worth around $177 million, which is a...
