Paul George made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and talked about the possibility of playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, where he is reportedly “hell bent” on going once he becomes a free agent after the 2017-18 season.
George told Kimmel that he will be training with Kobe this Summer which will only fuel those Lakers rumors, though he made sure to talk about his love for Indy during the interview as well.
Growing up in Palmdale, California and playing his college ball at Fresno State it’s no secret that Paul George would like to play for the Lakers, it just remains to be seen whether that opportunity will arise via free agency or through a trade before next season’s deadline. According to ESPN.com’s Zach Lowe, the Lakers “will dangle prospects” in a possible deal for George.
