Indiana Pacers shooting guard Lance Stephenson admits that he was wrong to talk about LeBron James in his press conference.

Lance Stephenson has admitted that he was wrong to talk about LeBron James in a press conference during the Eastern Conference finals.

The Indiana Pacers shooting guard told reporters earlier this week that the Miami Heat forward's on-court trash talk was a "sign of weakness".

Stephenson has now told reporters: "I think this stuff bothered us a little bit. It's part of the game. I think I said some things that shouldn't have been said. Also Paul [George]. We just gotta play basketball and stop worrying about all the other stuff.

"I been learning since I got in the league. I came a long way. And I'm gonna keep learning 'til I get to that point where I'm a real pro."

The Heat currently lead the Eastern Conference finals 3-2.
