Looks Like These Pro-D'Angelo Russell Tweets By Magic Johnson Were BS

Lakers fans’ dreams of Paul George joining D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle (did you hear they have the same agent?) were dashed today as D-Lo was shipped to the Nets for Brook Lopez and the No. 27 pick in this year’s draft:

According to Woj, the Lakers are gunning to bring in George and LeBron next offseason now that they no longer own Timofey Mozgov’s horrendous contract. Lofty #goals for sure, but it’s still shocking to see Magic pull the plug on 21-year-old D-Lo after years of backing him on Twitter.
