Video: How could the NBA punish the Lakers for tampering?

More than a few teams were hoping to steal away Paul George from the Indiana Pacers last season, the Boston Celtics among them.

We all know how the Oklahoma City Thunder swooped in and nabbed the star wing, but if the Los Angeles Lakers had conducted themselves differently, would it have played out the same way? More importantly, if the Lakers did tamper with George, what might be in store for the club? With Boston potentially in line to receive a draft pick from the club, and only a one-ring lead in the most storied rivalry in sports, fans of both teams want to know if the Lakers will be punished - and if so, how. Watch the video above for a brief discussion of what the Lake Show may be staring down if the league sides against them.
