Lance Stephenson

What do you guys see as his ceiling? He is super talented and super young. I think he could be a Stephon Marbury type with some work on his game.

Re: Lance Stephenson

I hooked my computer up to my TV and my wireless keyboard doesn't register like half the keystrokes since I'm too far away,



......otherwise I'd tell you more about how I hate Lance Stephenson.

Re: Lance Stephenson

i used to be a doubter. however, i think he can be a very good player. he has the size (6-5) to play either pg/sg and even some sf. he is definitely the best guy on the team at creating his own shot and attacking the basket. he is also racking up assists too.
i have seen him rebound the ball and go coast to coast several times this year. i think we are starting to see the guy bird believed he could become.
he makes some dumb mistakes too but they are often aggressive mistakes from lack of actual experience. and those are the kind i can live with since i believe those will go down as time goes on.
he has been one of the few bright spots in my book this season.

He is going to be really good eventually.

Hes not. Every team has some mediocre prospect they overrate. Ours is Lance.

Re: Lance Stephenson

Orlando Jackson also sucks.

Add Plumlee to the list.

Re: Lance Stephenson

I like him. He's not good on defense and has a pretty low IQ, but he's shooting well and damn he's quick. He has the on court personality and fire that we all wish Paul George would have...

Re: Lance Stephenson

He has shown flashes of brilliance and then other times he looks like he belongs in the D-League. As long as we're not paying him big money I'd like to keep him until we see if he ever reaches his potential or not.

You have our old guy, too. Remember, Gerald Green is the next MacGrady.

He's a hell of a lot better than Lance Stephenson, so he has that going for him I guess.

Re: Lance Stephenson

He definitely seems to bring energy to the team when they need it at times. His career is going to be defined by his work ethic.
