We’ve been writing about it all afternoon, but after attempting to goad LeBron James and his Heat teammates to retaliate with an endless parade of nonsense on the court, Lance Stephenson proved there wasn’t any deeply-held animus — at least on his side.
Stephenson’s Instagram post today thanked his Pacers teammates while also giving respect to James and the Heat, with Lance writing the Heat “deserve” their win.
Here’s the full caption along with the photo Stephenson posted showing James embracing him after the series concluded last night:
I have much respect for LeBron and the heat. This was a great series they deserve it all love to Heat. Want to say that I’m so proud of my teammates we work so hard all year to get to point, Everything is a learning experience and getting better every year love u guys Pacer nation and thanks to all of our Pacer fans love y’all too.
