Over the last couple weeks, there’s been a lot trade talk regarding Indiana Pacers star Paul George. So, his teammate Lance Stephenson took to Instagram this week with a heartfelt message about wanting him to stay.
“I’m not letting u leave bro. Stay home bro. We did big things let’s continue,” the Pacers wingman wrote, alongside a photo the two together.
If you’ve been following Pacers news, it appears George will likely be traded. He has reportedly told the team he won’t re-sign with them when he becomes a free agent in 2018, so they will likely deal him before he leaves.
Well, Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas played on this, commenting on Stephenson’s message with some jokes… leading to a little back-n-forth. He essentially tells Lance that George is coming to Boston… and there’s nothing he can do about it.
George isn’t the only player Thomas wants on his team either. He’s also been trying to recruit Blake Griffin…after CP3 left for Houston.
