    Is nice to see so many people jumping in his band wagon, I think that Im not as crazy as some people thought I was when I said that the pacers drafted him to be the point guard of the future.

    Did he try to grab your ***? We need to start watching out for that since he's in town. j/k
    I just hope he doesn't ***-grab during a game.

    I only saw a few of Tyreke Evans' games this season, but I thought Lance looked very similar today. (not saying he's the next tyreke, but one can dream)

    Anyone see a lot of Tyreke this past season? Similar style?

    I for one said after he was drafted that this why he prob was drated, he reminds me of a R. Westbrook type pg ........... pg for future idk??????? PG for now definitely yes. Thats why the Pacers haven't went after a pg they wanted to see what we had in Lance... IMO.

    Good to see this thread wasn't total BS when I posted it. I know it's only one game into Summer League, but Lance showed us something today.

    I've been watching a lot of video on him. I've watched a lot of video on Tyreke Evans to try to compare the two. Lance to me seems to be on that level.

    I believe with the right coach that he could be an all star point gaurd. He has handles and vision. His cross-over was at least effective at the college level.

    I saw in those videos a natural abillity to create. When have the Pacers had this type of talent?

    The hype surrounding "Born Ready" has probably gotten to me. But I have tried not to like the kid. Sure he may not be as well spoken as we would like our multi-million $ players to be he in Pacers-nation. And he may lack the fundamentals we prefer as well. I just can't get over the unique abilty he has to get to the rim (especially in the fast break).

    Until Lance gives me a reason not to be, I'm really excited about his future here as a Pacer. And I'm really hoping he turns out to be a point gaurd.

    This post bears repeating ...

    +100 FTW ...

    I couldn't be more excited about this guy. I still don't think he is a PG, just like Tyreke Evans isn't a PG. But he is showing that he can handle the ball well enough to eat some minutes at the position.

    Why not give the kid a shot at it? Let him play significant minutes the first half of the season backing up TJ, who would start. Split the numbers where he consistently get half a game and don't waver, regardless of the score or record. Why not? The kid has all of the talent in the world.

    This may kick that old knock on the kid saying that he has an ego a mile wide and does not work together well on a team. If the kid does poorly he could be a good SG in the rotation. If he does well, trade TJ at the deadline and make AJ the starter and Lance the back-up that logs serious minutes.

    Also to add...

    What if ....


    WHAT IF ....

    Lightning strikes , and Lance becomes a franchise player like a Jordan , Kobe or a LeBron ??

    Things like this DO happen ..

    Ya never know ..

    I would be happy with having a good , true starting calibur player ...

    But Like I said Ya Never Know.....


    and keep the words "WHAT IF?" in the back of your mind , and enjoy the ride ...

    the only difference between tyreke evans and lance stephenson is mentality...you teach lance how to become a team player without the enormous ego, then there's no reason he can't become a similar player. he sure as hell has the talent for it...
    That suggests Tyreke is a team player as well without his own character issues. Tyreke hasn't been as stupid or as self destructive as Lance, but I'll wait awhile before giving him any benefiit of the doubt of being a true team oriented guy.

    I may be missing something, but has Lance done anything illegal or destructive other than grab a girls butt in high school?

    He got into an altercation with a childhood friend and teammate also while in high school. Nothing really that uncommon.

    I think it's really important to remember he's 19 years old. He made mistakes. He's going to make some more. That doesn't make him a terrible person, it makes him human.

    I'm just glad we're going to get the chance to watch this kid possibly grow into something special right in front of our eyes.

    Maybe we should find a spot for the "SUMMER LEAGUE CHAMPS 4EVER!!" banner next to the "61 WINS!! WOOT!" banner.

    Wake me up when he plays in a regular season game. I'll start forming my opinion then.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?

    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    If AJ comes back and plays like he did when he got extended playing time, he and Lance could be quite a combo.

    Lance Stephenson's name is involved in 5 thread titles on the front page. He looked great in the 1st summer league game but lets not get carried away thinking this guy is the answer to all our PG problems. 2nd round pg's normally dont lead teams to the playoffs ever.

    Im rooting for Lance but Im not drinking the kool aid

    Not much else to talk about.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Why does everyone keep saying don't carried away about Lance? Isn't getting carried away part of the fun of all this, dreaming about a player being the answer to our prayers is something we all do from time to time. I get the feeling some people love coming down on those who get carried away. It's easy to get carried away, but it is also easy to be negative. I'll be the first to say, this is going to take time (Lance playing the point). But so far he has played great for a rookie who had one year of college ball. Of course the regular season is different thing entirely. This is Summer League and those of us on the Lance bandwagon should all be use caution when we anoint him the answer at the point. I never intend to say he was the answer at the point, but I had no problem posing the question. So far his passing is his best attribute. Also he gets the ball up the court in a hurry and can get to the rim when he wants, which he needs to do more of. He certainly will make the team. And I hope to see him get minutes in the regular season, how many I don't know, but I already can't wait for training camp to start and Summer League isn't even over yet.

    Good post Odeez. I did mention earlier itt to not get carried away about Lance. Im more of a "lets wait and see" guy instead of clinging onto someone so soon. Like I mentioned before, Im rooting for Lance. It'd be awesome to get some real value out of him coming from the 2nd round.
