“I don’t want to run the Lakers,” says Paul.
Paul added that he might one day want to own his own NBA squad.
Per Complex (via SiriusXM NBA Radio):
“Are you kidding me?” he said when he was asked if he runs Los Angeles. “I love what I do, man. I love the guys I represent. I love being in that process.”
While he said he might be interested in buying a team one day, Paul said that he still enjoys being an agent.
“It’s special. I enjoy it,” he said. “It’s not work for me.”
Paul doubled down on his initial statement to close out.
“I don’t run the Lakers. I don’t want to run the Lakers, but the Lakers are a great organization,” he said. “They’ve been nothing but great to me, per se, through the guys that I represent.”
