Stephenson apology misses mark

AP

INDIANAPOLIS — Pacers reserve guard Lance Stephenson apologized for making a choking gesture toward LeBron James.

The NBA's MVP wasn't so forgiving.

In fact, he didn't even know he had been mocked.

James said Saturday that he was unaware that Stephenson had been caught by cameras in front of Indiana's bench wrapping his hands around his throat after the Miami star missed a free throw during Game 3 on Thursday night.

So when James was asked for his reaction, he dismissed Stephenson.

"Lance Stephenson? You want a quote about Lance Stephenson?" James said after practice. "I'm not even going to give him the time. Knock it off."
