Frank Vogel had a very honest press conference about various things following the Indiana Pacers’ Eastern Conference Finals Game 6 elimination loss to the Miami Heat on Friday night. Vogel called LeBron James “the Michael Jordan of our era” as well as comparing the Heat to the 1990s Chicago Bulls.
Vogel also discussed Lance Stephenson. Here’s what he had to say:
"I'll take Lance Stephenson's competitive edge. But it's never good to tug on Superman's cape." – Pacers coach Frank Vogel

The Pacers will have a big decision to make about Stephenson this offseason. Will they sign him to an extension? It’s been discussed that it may not happen after his antics in Game 6, but the competitive edge and hustle has been displayed all season.
It’s all up to Indiana when it’s all said and done, though. This offseason is going to be an interesting one.
