Lakers Didn't Need Paul George. Paul George Wanted to Be a Laker.

Doug Gottlieb and Jason Smith (filling in for Dan Patrick) get into it about Paul George not signing with the LA Lakers. Lakers had a chance to get him previously but also, knew they had a chance at him anyway due to him declaring he wanted to be a Laker. Now, as George goes into his new contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder, is this really a loss for the LA Lakers going forward? Jason Smith feels that LA missed out big by not trading for him last season but Doug, on the other hand, feels that George's value is a bit overrated and his decision to go to OKC wasn't the best idea.
