George has long been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers — he is from Palmdale, California, and grew up a big Kobe Bryant fan, (but was a fan of the LA Clippers) — and according to Mitch Lawrence of Forbes Magazine, that move can still happen.
In some circles, the Lakers are still considered the front-runners. The Thunder hasn’t given George many reasons to commit long-term, even after OKC GM Sam Presti was hailed for trading off four role players for George and [Carmelo] Anthony. Reigning MVP Russell Westbrook has looked lost with George and Anthony.
George is currently under contract with the Thunder for one more year after this season, but he has a player option for that second year, per HoopsHype. He would have to essentially give up $20.5 million to opt out of that contract and sign somewhere else.
The Lakers are on a rebuild and are focused on developing talent this year, but it’s no secret that they want to hoard their cap space for two max free agents next year. One of those may be George.
It’s true that the Thunder are struggling, and that could be a factor in George’s decision when the season ends. But it would behoove him to have patience and see where this goes with OKC. It’s not easy to have immediate success with three isolation-heavy players having to learn how to play together.
But if George is looking or greener pastures — and less tornadoes — the Lakers will be happy to have him. Via Alex V.

"Above And Below"
This amazing footage was filmed on location at Bahia De Los Angeles, Baja California, Mexico courtesy of our friends Pancho and Charlie at Silver Shark Adventures @silversharkadventures - What it looks like above and below the surface when a 30 ft. whale shark is feeding. Two perspectives of the same whale shark going completely vertical in the nutrient rich waters of Bahía de los Ángeles. Drone footage courtesy of my good friend Mike Nulty @nuttynulty capturing Ivan Verdugo, Alexis @lexiselias and @silversharkadventures with the largest species of fish on the planet.
🔵The whale shark (Rhincodon typus) is a slow-moving, filter-feeding carpet shark and the largest known extant fish species. The largest confirmed individual had a length of 12.65 m (41.5 ft) and a weight of about 21.5 t (47,000 lb). The whale shark holds many records for sheer size in the animal kingdom, most notably being by far the largest living nonmammalian vertebrate. It is the sole member of the genus Rhincodon and the only extant member of the family Rhincodontidaewhich belongs to the subclass Elasmobranchii in the class Chondrichthyes. Before 1984 it was classified as Rhiniodoninto Rhinodontidae. The species originated about 60 million years ago.
Despite its size, the whale shark does not pose significant danger to humans. Whale sharks are docile fish and sometimes allow swimmers to catch a ride, although this practice is discouraged by shark scientists and conservationists because of the disturbance to the sharks. Younger whale sharks are gentle and can play with divers. Underwater photographers such as Fiona Ayerst have photographed them swimming close to humans without any danger.
The shark is seen by divers in many places, including the Bay Islands in Honduras, Thailand, the Philippines, the Maldives close to Maamigili (South Ari Atoll), the Red Sea, Western Australia (Ningaloo Reef, Christmas Island), Taiwan, Panama (Coiba Island), Belize, Tofo Beach in Mozambique, Sodwana Bay (Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park) in South Africa, the Galapagos Islands, Saint Helena, Isla Mujeres (Caribbean Sea), La Paz, Baja California Sur and Bahía de los Angeles.
