Magic Johnson came up with an interesting idea for Chris Paul in case his Phoenix Suns fail to win the championship this year. The legendary point guard made a case for the Lakers as a perfect destination for the Point God.
The Suns are having a terrific postseason, leading their Western Conference Finals series against the Los Angeles Clippers, even without Paul on the court. They are a strong candidate to win it all this campaign but, in case they can’t do the job, Magic already has an alternative for the 36-year-old.
Asked if the Lakers should go after Paul if he doesn’t succeed with Phoenix, Magic said:
“No question about it. I’d tell Jeanie I’d ask some money for CP3. It’d be perfect for LeBron, for AD, and for the role players.”
