Lance Stephenson, pissed about All-Star snub, posterizes the referee “I’m going to kill everybody who is in front of me.”
The best post All-Star snub performance is probably Karl Malone’s 61 points on 26 shots in 33 minutes of a 48 point victory that took place on January 27th. The Mailman was pissed that AC Green made the All-Star game over him so Malone delivered this exceptional performance against the Bucks.
When the league leader in triple doubles heard that he was not selected to the team, Lance Stephenson responded with his 4th triple double (14/10/10) of the season.
“I already had a chip on my shoulder and it made me even worse,” Stephenson said about not making the Eastern Conference reserves. “Now I’m going to kill everybody who is in front of me.”
On Saturday night, Stephenson, with a chip on his shoulder, did try to kill everybody in front of him including the ref that he posterized near the end of the 2nd quarter.
“Like I said, whoever made it in front of me or whoever is in my position who people think whose in front of me, I’m definitely going to go after them,” Stephenson said. “You’ll definitely see that tonight – me going after (Johnson).”
In the Pacers win, Lance finished the game with 14 points (5-8fg) and 7 rebounds and Brooklyn’s All-Star Joe Johnson finished with 16 points (6-14fg) and 1 rebound.
“You can’t fear no one,” Stephenson said. “When you’re on the floor, (James) bleeds the same way as you and you know how hard you work. Just because he’s a little bit bigger and a little bit quicker, that doesn’t make you scared of him. You got to bring your talent and play hard at all times.”
