Lance Stephenson is not happy that his breakout season will be without an All-Star designation. Born Ready told media on Friday that that he’s “mad” at being snubbed, but added, “I’m just going to keep working hard and prove everyone wrong.” Let’s go Lance! From the Indy Star:
“I’m mad,” Stephenson said. “I feel like I had my breakout year last year. I showed I can play with anyone on the floor and I felt like this year, I brought a little bit more to my game.
“But other people saw it differently. I’m just going to keep working hard and prove everyone wrong.”
Stephenson not being included among the All-Star reserves was the talk of the league when they were announced on Thursday night. Hall of Famer and TNT analyst Charles Barkley chimed in with: “That’s a joke. I see why they’ve got so many crappy teams in the East because the coaches don’t know what they’re doing.”
