Lakers Started to Fall Apart When Paul George Said No

Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki put caps on their careers with Wade's final game in Miami and Dirk's final game as a player only for Magic Johnson to announce it's his final day as President of Basketball Operations.

Dan Patrick, like everyone, was floored when this happened, but it also reminds him of what he said around the beginning of the season when LeBron James arrived. Patrick believed there was something here with this team that could work but only if they exercised patience in this process. That was thrown out the window when the Anthony Davis trade leaks began. Patrick tells a tale of how this all began back when the Lakers failed to acquire Paul George from Oklahoma City, and the Lakers haven't recovered since.
