Re: Lance Stephenson

I was concerned about Lance last season, but this year so far he's shown he can be a productive 6th-8th man in the league. I wouldn't be surprised to see him starting down the line if he keeps maturing and working on his defense. Comparisons are hard because really no one plays like him at all. He's going to start posting up maybe next season, he can beat almost anyone off the dribble, and now he appears to have a solid jump shot. Plus he's a good playmaker with solid court vision. He's always had the skills, but it looks like this year he's started putting them together, at least on offense.

Lance has been a lot more consistent than Green.

Both are dumb as shit, though. Green is worse, in my opinion.

Green's definitely an idiot as well, but the man can create his own shot better than Lance. Green's a killer from the mid-range, and even though he's a ball stopper, you can go to him for buckets during some bad stretches. Plus, he can still be effective without the ball off screens and back door cuts. No one in the league can catch a poor-passed alley-oop like he can.

A strange day where you and I agree.

A multi-time All-Star with career averages of 19/8? Yes, this seems like a reasonable ceiling for Lance Stephenson.

I have not seen the killer mid-range this season or his buckets during bad stretches. I haven't seen the back door cuts since preseason.

Did you watch last game? He had a nice cut for an alley-oop, and a few plays in the mid-range in the 3rd quarter that prevented us from blowing the lead more than we did. It was definitely too much one-on-one, but sometimes that's nice to have, and sometimes he fits in in the background. Also, sometimes he's an utterly worthless blackhole on offense and a liability on defense.

But really, Green has one of the best high-post and mid-range games in the league for a swingman.

Re: Lance Stephenson

No I didn't watch the last game, but one game is hardly the sample size.

The rest of the year he's looked like shit.

One game isn't a great sample size, sure, but the moves he's shown are so polished that you know he can pull them out any game. One of them last game Kobe would've been proud of. Maybe it's just the 3-4 games I've watched this year, but he can definitely be a factor at times.

No, he is not. Lance fits better with this team and in my eyes is much more talented.
