Larry Bird Tells Stephenson Don’t Show Bron Any More Affection


Larry Bird was a legendary trash talker, but he didn’t blow into his opponents ears, so he has told Lance Stephenson to knock it off. Here is what he had to say via the Sporting News.

Following a shootaround before Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, in which the Pacers trail 3-2, Stephenson said, “He said, ‘Don’t do it again,’ so I’m not going to do it again. He’s kept me on the right path my whole career, and if he says something to me, I take it to heart.”
