Jordan To Lance Stephenson: Learn When To Calm Down
Lance Stephenson made it clear during his introductory press conference with the Charlotte Hornets that he’s more than just the guy that blew in LeBron James’ ear during the playoffs.
“I bring more to the table than blowing in someone’s ear,” Stephenson said Friday of the incident with LeBron James that brought him so much notoriety
The multi-talented shooting guard said he spoke with Michael Jordan before agreeing to his new deal, and the Hornets owner had a strong message for him.
“He told me what he likes about me, he told me what I need to calm down on,” Stephenson told the Observer after the news conference. “He told me how I can contribute to the team. And he told me he believed in my talent. He likes my competitive edge.”
Last season Stephenson averaged 13.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists and shot 49 percent from the field.
