Report: NBA investigated, cleared Lakers assistant Brian Shaw for tampering with Paul George
Thunder forward Paul George defended his offseason conversations with Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw as about only fishing, not Shaw recruiting the star to Los Angeles.
Did George – who played for the Pacers when Indiana initiated the tampering inquiry – unwittingly reveal there was more for the league to investigate?
Nope. The league already handled that.
I’m not shocked Shaw’s and George’s emails and texts showed nothing. But how would the league prove what Shaw told George while fishing, anyway? Out on the water isn’t like being on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
