The Los Angeles Lakers are going to be pushing hard to land Paul George. We know this to be true, based on a leak that emerged Monday morning. The team’s getting a bit of help from one of its well-off season-ticket holders, too.
And when we say “a bit of help,” we’re really saying DEAR GOD LOOK AT ALL THIS HELP.
A lawyer, who’s already put up billboards to lure LeBron James to Los Angeles, has purchased more than 40 billboards for Paul George, according to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN. There are reportedly six different designs, including the one featured below, and three of them feature LeBron James as well.
Attorney and Lakers season ticket holder Jacob Emrani, who put up 4 billboards recruiting LeBron in March, has paid for over 40 billboards for Paul George. There are six different designs, all have the #PG2LA with three designs including LeBron with George. Here’s one billboard: pic.twitter.com/xHoHaItlqC

The full-court press is on, folks. The Lakers are swinging for the fences, and there’s no doubt that George, a Los Angeles kid, will need to be convinced NOT to go back home and play for the Lakers starting next season.
