George on Stephenson: Sometimes you gotta watch what you say
Pacers forward laments comments from teammate towards LeBron James after disastrous Game 4 performance.
Pacers forward Paul George lamented his teammate Lance Stephenson's comments about LeBron James in Game 3 and in advance of Game 4 following the Pacers' 102-90 loss to Miami on Monday.
"Well, you know, Lance is young," George said. "You know that's teaching point, it's a learning lesson for him. Sometimes you just gotta watch what you say. You're on a big stage and everything you say is bulletin board material. It's really going to have a powerful meaning behind it. We've just got to be smarter with situations and voicing our opinions sometimes."
George spoke more on the subject later in the press conference.
Stephenson said after the game he had "no regrets" about his comments.
