    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbs...ul-george/amp/

    How bad is this? Doesn't sound good to me...

    Everything in this report was reported before. My guess is that the new GM may be pushing this in some way, to cover up for the **** job he did in getting anything of comparable value for George.

    Tampering is a ***** to prove, particularly in the post-LeSnitch/Miami era, when there was clearly collusion between those players, their reps, and even Miami.

    I think the more important question is how long will it take for Rocco to run across this story, and start an entirely new thread without first looking to see if anyone else posted on the subject.
    Butthurt Sssmush, because Russell got traded:

    "Unless Ball is a superstar out of the box and Ingram legitamately happens...
    seriously we might lose 80 games I am not even joking...."


    Superstar Brooklyn Nets stat-whore D'Angelo Russell:

    "I wanted to play defense in L.A.," Russell said, "but I felt
    like I had to score every chance I got for us to be relevant."

    This is just Indiana crying like little ******* because they never were going to get good value for Paul George and apparently Paul George is determined to go to the lakers, whether that happens or not

    I agree With what the pacers are doing. This stuff happens with every star player and most teams lol. I do believe it needs to stop. will it? of course not, teams will always find loop holes or just break the rules and take their chances. The fact that everyone knew PG would leave the Pacers for Lakers was horrible (not completely Lakers fault). Its horrible for the entire fan base of the Pacers and hurts what they could get in a trade for PG. Its bad for basketball. So i would like to see the NBA take this more serious and hand out massive fines. Still won't stop it but could slow it down.

    Not saying Lakers are guilty IDK. but this is a bigger problem in the NBA.

    Free market > pissy rules

    Capitalism > socialism

    It's fine the way it is.

    The most cunning execs in the most desirable markets will always have the upper hand.

    If Indiana, Milwaukee, etc are repugnant player destinations, there are no codifications or stipulations that can change that.

    It's like putting a suit on a goat; i.e it's still a ****ing goat.

    Those teams should be happy just to be in the revenue sharing pool.

    Bolstering the tampering rules? Please....

    Beggars can't be choosers.

    This is my hope as well. Prichard put his ego ahead of the best basketball move for their franchise. LA, BOS, or even Cleveland with Kevin love could have given the Pacers a better deal than 4 years of Oladipo that takes up a lot of their payroll into coming years. Whatever. I will laugh if PG13 joins a super team with the Lakers next offseason and Prichard has a hissy fit about it. To be honest, the NBA desperately needs a team to challenge the Warriors now that Cle. figures to be out gunned with Durant in GS. Not sure there is a team that can beat them this year either but Hou and OKC definitely got better. Still doubt its enough though.

    This is primarily why Kupchake was an ineffective GM. It was noted in a report that stated he wouldn't interact with any pending free agents until they were officially available. Meanwhile, every other GM was sending third parties or unaffiliates to meet with players on their teams behalf to set up meetings or begin the parameters of a deal. Bottom line is, in the NBA you have to be creative if your a decision maker so as long as rules aren't directly broken, I see nothing wrong with reaching out to players indirectly to guage interest. Wall street bankers often reach out to wealthy parties for new stock deals even when they aren't supposed to make contact before regulators give them the okay to solicit them for the deal. Yet they don't get in trouble because they work within the rules as specified. The point is, the NBA has its rules but if your not creative enough to work around those rules, you shouldn't be in a head management position in the league to begin with. We will see what comes of the probe but this wreaks of a desperate attempt by the Pacers to destroy the Lakers' chances of landing George next year when its been widely anticipated that he wanted to play for LA well before this off season.

    At least Mitch keeps quiet which Magic should be doing right now because this will end badly for us if he tamper with George.

    Not to say I told you so... but I completely 100% called this back in March or April.

    And everyone said "Sssmush is such an idiot he doesn't realize that Magic is a business wizard who manages the Dodgers to greatness and he would never, ever make any such mistake. Don't you realize that Magic knows EXACTLY what he's doing and would never make the mistake of making contact or overtures to Paul George?"

    JFC it sucks if we get fined draft picks and meanwhile Paul George, CP3 and Lebron are all planning to reunite in Miami or NY or something. (clearly they have to stay in the East. All the sportswriters saying Lebron will be in the West are just responding to rumors and not thinking the scenario through)

    Name one person that said this:

    The only part that I know people have said is "Sssmush is such an idiot"...
