Magic Johnson’s hilarious interview with Jimmy Kimmel is apparently a lot less funny for the Los Angeles Lakers now.

The Indiana Pacers have filed tampering charges against the Lakers and the NBA is looking into whether or not the latter organization had illegal contact with Paul George, according to Peter Vescey.
An independent law firm” is reportedly interviewing Lakers president Jeanie Buss, general manager Rob Pelinka and president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, who have to turn over any correspondence they’ve had with George or his agent.
The Pacers have since dealt George to the Oklahoma City Thunder, but are likely still dissatisfied over the way the George trade market shook out when it became clearer with each report that George was ‘hell-bent” on ending up with the Lakers, thus decreasing Indiana’s ability to find leverage on the trade market for him.
