The Indiana Pacers have filed tamperin’ charges with the NBA against the Los Angeles Lakers in the whole Paul George debacle. Boyz around this piece are hot about it too!! The NBA issued a statement on Sunday tellin’ cats that the investigation is now in full effect and Magic is the dun in the eye of the storm playboy!!

The Lakers bounced back with their own statement hollerin’, “As the NBA’s statement made clear, we cannot comment about the specifics of any ongoing investigation. We can confirm, however, that we are cooperating fully with the NBA in the hope of clearing our name as soon as possible.” 

Now let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Everybody and their baby’s momma knew back in February that Paul George wanted to go play for the Lakers. As I explained in the crazy Hot Joint entitled “Business Never Personal” on February 23 on the trade DEADLINE that the Pacers needed to trade that dun TODAY. Why? Because he wasn’t goin’ to sign the extension offered to him at the time because he wanted to play in LA. That was common knowledge around this piece. Now I’m not sure why the Pacers didn’t know because everybody in the streets knew?

Magic had only been on the job with the Lakers for two days. However, he told boyz then that he wouldn’t trade for PG13 because he could just wait until ole boy fell into their laps in the summer of 2018. Made sense to me right?

Why chase a boy when you already know that he’s comin’ your way anyway. Now Magic did sit in the cut and Tweet out “God is good” when ole boy told the Pacers that he wasn’t goin’ to sign an extension with the Pacers to play past the 2018 season.

Now because PG is from the LA area you already know that he’d been hollerin’ at Magic about this foolishness but you can’t prove it! Unless you saw them together talkin’ loud enough for you to hear them puttin’ this plan together there’s no proof of tampering.

PG isn’t loyal to the Pacers at this point so he’s not goin’ to tell NBA investigators that Magic straight up hollered at him about comin’ to LA. He’s from Palmdale bruh!!! He’ll just tell a boy that he’s wanted to play for the Lakers his ENTIRE life and that will be the end of it.

Unless the league has some taped phone conversations or some type of foolishness like that it’s a wrap. Magic is gonna walk out of the joint smilin’ from ear to ear just like he always goes. Why? Because the Pacers dropped the ball back in February thinkin’ that they were goin’ to persuade a boy to stay if he made the All-NBA team. If he’d made that team they could have offered him more that $200 million instead of the $170 million that they could have offered. However, he didn’t make the team and wasn’t interested in that bread either. The Lakers can only offer him $130 million next summer. The Pacers gambled and missed and now it is what it is. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) Ole boy: noun – the person that I’m talkin’ about.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
