Bird delivers Pacers' All-Star bid in an Indy car

The Cavs held Paul George in check for most of the game, consistently throwing double teams at the Pacers' No. 1 option.

However, Mitch Lawrence of Sporting News believes the Lakers should stay away from Paul George. It makes ideal sense; Boston GM Danny Ainge and Pacers president Larry Bird are friends and former teammates. Here's how it went down. "If we want to be serious, that's the team we've got to look at and figure out how we can match up against them". That's roughly $75 million more than what the Lakers could bid - a lot of money to reject.

"You take a year like last year, with that group, we felt like if you added a couple pieces to that group we'd have something again", George said. "Jimmy, can you help me pass along a message?" . Remind me to lose the number for Al Jefferson's agent.

The Pacers, meanwhile, packed their bags for a journey into an uncertain future, absent the usual optimism for better things ahead that has marked the conclusions of the previous three seasons.

Bird had several offers on the table at the trade deadline for George.

A player of George's caliber leaving, with nothing coming back in return, sets in up for a few very lean years. George has made comments about wanting to stay in IN as long as the Pacers can offer him a chance to win a championship.

The Los Angeles Lakers could be one of those teams. "Eventually, I'd figure out how to get going, figure out my role, and I think I have a good grasp on that right now".

GEORGE: [looks up Beverly Hills mansions on Zillow] Cool.

"I love IN, man, you know me - born and raised". George and Chris Paul would be lethal.

"We're gonna say "hi" because we know each other", Johnson said, via USA Today, of a potential run-in this offseason.

GEORGE: [texts Woj "When am I getting traded?"] Yeah.

"What we're waiting on is to see if we're going to keep our pick or not", Lakers boss Magic Johnson recently told Fred Roggin and Rodney Peete on LA Sports 570 AM. The new roster put together never panned out as envisioned prior to this past season, and saw IN finishing with a 42-40 record and a first-round sweep at the hands of LeBron James and the No. 2 Cleveland Cavaliers.

There is also the possibility that George's days are numbered in Indiana.

If George wants to leave, he's likely gone, barring a qualification for the league's new designated player contract distinction, which kicks in if George makes an All-NBA team this year or next.

George was asked whether he thought he was deserving of a vote at the end of the regular season.

GEORGE: [puts in production order for purple and gold PG1s] Word.

"I ain't even at that point, yet", George said after the loss.

GEORGE: [likes every Instagram post of him wearing a Photoshopped Lakers jersey] Thank you.
