(Paul) George believes (Lance) Stephenson, who was miffed about not being named an All-Star last season, was attracted to a star role in Charlotte.

“He did that because he wants to come into his own,” George said. “That’s not to say he couldn’t do that in Indiana. But I think the fresh start gives him the ability to lead a team and take what he got from us to Charlotte. He is a player that wants to be an All-Star, wants to be a superstar in this league. So I think he made that move based on that.”
