“If you’re asking a guy every day to just hit this button,” says George, Walton’s former Lakers teammate, “and you’re going off on somebody every day, it kind of becomes noise. As opposed to people actually hearing your message.” Walton, meanwhile, was seamlessly communicating Kerr’s directives to the record-setting Warriors. Players admired his command and thoughtfulness. “Obviously, we can be friends and whatever,” All-Star forward Draymond Green says. “You can talk to me and I can talk to you, but at the end of the day, business is business. He does a great job of balancing that. I don’t think it’s a very easy thing to do.”

When Lue did get physical once—with none other than O’Neal—it was in defense of another teammate. As Shaw tells it, the Lakers had just lost to the San Antonio Spurs, and Devean George had made a key mistake down the stretch, sending O’Neal into a rage. “Shaq was standing over Devean’s locker and he was physically beating Devean up,” Shaw recalled. “I said, ‘Man, what are you doing? He’s a young player. He made mistakes. But that’s not why we lost the game.’ I said, ‘If you would have used some of that energy that you’re using pushing him around and boxed out Malik Rose, he wouldn’t have gotten 10 offensive rebounds against us, and maybe we would have won the game because of that.'”

George was at LAX when we asked about the housing development he was working on for low-income families in north Minnesota. Devean first told us he was planning the project when we shot him back in 2013 … and now he tells us it’s all finished. But that’s not all he tells us … ’cause now that everything’s up and running George says he thinks he can take things to the next level by adding a little Magic (Johnson) to his project. Check out the clip — George makes an offer to Magic … and it looks pretty sincere to us.

Former LA Laker and Augsburg College standout Devean George is the driving force behind a new development in North Minneapolis. He and a former classmate hope their affordable housing unit near Penn Avenue and Golden Valley Road will be a catalyst for positive change. A high-traffic area known for violence and crime is being converted into a place where people can live, shop and thrive in the heart of North Minneapolis.
