The Lakers are trying to make a super team with two or more of LeBron James, Paul George, and Kawhi Leonard.
While Lebron has made it clear he doesn't want his free agent suitors to give him a big fancy pitch this time around, the Lakers believe local boy George might be susceptible to such flattery.
ESPN has obtained the script for the pitch Los Angeles plans to make to the swingman.
A person recruited to do the voiceover was told that it should be "less Morgan Freeman/Denzel Washington, and more Jamie Foxx."
The pitch entitled "Two Dreams" makes hints about who the pitch is for.
The text reads:
When you were just a kid
In your room
Dreaming from Palmdale
We were dreaming too.
While you dreamt, we built - built for your arrival
And while we dreamt, you built too
Becoming one of the world's greatest.
Life's most powerful dream are the one we realize ourselves.
The ones that turn us into legends.
That kid from Palmdale always knew it
Now the world will, too
Do you think the Lakers are going to score big in free agency this offseason?
