To this day, Paul George has been receiving mixed reactions on passing off a potential move to Los Angeles. As most know by now, the 28-year-old hardly gave Los Angeles a chance to pitch and George elected to stay with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Had George moved to Hollywood, he would have partnered with LeBron James as stars of the team. He would have also been the answer to the offensive woes of the Lakers. The only thing is he would either share the limelight or play second fiddle to the three-time NBA champion.

But it seems George did do his homework even if he didn't sit down with Earvin "Magic" Johnson and the Lakers. He had the chance to play alongside a former Laker in Corey Brewer and ESPN reported how the NBA veteran revealed his Lakers experience to George.

Brewer suited up for the Lakers for two seasons (2017-18) before he got waived in February. And not many believe the 33-year-old swingman said sweet nothings to George. Whatever he revealed, the six-time NBA All-Star hardly found a reason to jump over to Hollywood, Lakers Nation reported.

George may never reveal the reason why he changed his mind and snubbed the Los Angeles Lakers and critics will continue to dig deep. But as mentioned in a previous report, George said that many misread his plans during free agency and that it was his decision to make.

With the Thunder, George got a four-year deal worth $137 million. Considering the Lakers spent a fortune on James ($153.3 million), there is no telling if the Lakers could offer something similar or bigger than that.

Regardless, George knows he is due big money anywhere he may play and while he is at the prime of his career. The issue is likely to die down in the coming years and the only time the Lakers can try again is if PG13 is already 31 or 32.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances, George should be still good to go and more mature as a player by then. If James signed with the Lakers at 34, PG13 can certainly do so as well in what could be likely his last NBA stop.
