    Default Stevenson will revolutionize the Pacers

    Yeah, I gotta go post in the summer league, thread. But I've been watching it on NBA TV.

    Ladies and gentleman, we just found our future point guard and the steal of the draft. Lance Stevenson can flat out ball. The only thing I've seen him do wrong so far is miss one foul shot.

    He hits his outside jumpers. He drives to the hole. He posts up. He sees the whole floor. He handles the ball great. He can cross over on anyone who tries to steal the ball. He makes the fantastic pass. He makes the pedestrian pass. He gets it with spacing on defense.

    He is 6 freaking 5.

    The announcers are talking about him like he's all the rage. Because he is. This could transform our team.

    I'm ecstatic. Go Pacers.

    I hope you're right and I'm sure this will be the first of many similar posts, but let's temper our emotion a bit after 1 summer league half.

    He has definitely been impressive but his dribbling has been a little loose. He was charged with a carry in the second half. He got trapped at halfcourt at one point because of his lack of handles.

    However, he does seem to have a lot of energy and a lot of pop. He seems to be seeing the floor well (several nice passes to Rolle to start the game). If they keep working with him I think he will end up being a great pickup from the draft. I have certainly been more impressed with him over any other players in this game (including George, Orton, Magnum, etc).

    Remember, this is the summer league. This doesn't mean we disregard everything he does here, but we also need to look at matters realistically.

    Can he stay in front of guys like Paul, Parker, Rondo and Rose ?

    i'll admit - i'm impressed watching him today.

    he needs to work on his handles a bit as he dribbles far too high, but his skill set is phenomenal for a second rounder. he sure can attack the hoop at will. mid range game is solid. court vision is very good for a 2 guard. could definitely be the steal of the draft. reminds me a lot of tyreke evans.

    magnum rolle looks like a rotational player as well. great rebounder.

    paul george looks akward out there - i'm somewhat disappointed on that front. nice shooting form, but his feel for the game is nowhere near stephenson's.

    Who can?

    This is all premature, but no question Stephenson has a whole lot of just plain natural ability. Good knack for being able to make something good happen when things get out of control. The Pacers haven't had that since...well..ever.

    Of course, this Orlando squad is a far cry from anything he'll see in the real games, so we'll need to see how he responds when he gets destroyed by somebody. (And that will happen.)

    Not to take away from anything positive but is summer league play really anything to be excited about?

    I think most people have known that Stephenson has had NBA talent and a place in the league if he keeps his head on straight. My concern was/still is what goes on between his ears. Not only about what he does off the court but is he a good teammate? Is he coachable? Time will tell on these things. Glad he has played well so far though.

    Let me also say in this thread, I love Stephenson's game today. If this isn't an absolute aberration, he's the best point guard on the roster, at this point.

    Looked great today, but REVOLUTIONIZE? Wow! Hope so, but I need to that consistently against even better comp to go that far. At this point, I don't even know about the PG thing, although it's worth a shot. Definitely worth being excited about.

    Wow... Lance is blowing up twitter too:

    http://twitter.com/#search?q=lance%20stephenson

    He's a trending topic.

    Nice to be on the good side of news for a change.

    Wish I could have seen the game.

    I'm hoping this is just a taste of what Stephenson can do. He weighed a bit heavy but he definitely looks slimmer than he was. That should contribute to his agility. 6'5 and about 210 is about right for him. Anyway, let's hope he proves capable of PG.

    Which one? Those two bonded instantly... there were several really good passes from Lance to Magnum in this game.

    It's like the kid was born ready.
    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!

    Let's not let this get us to high or low. He looked awesome today, and I want to annoint him the savour, but we have to let things play out. He looks like he can run the point, and let's just hope he keeps it up.

    Does this mean that we could have another point guard that hates the Knicks...?

    Wished he had some more assists though, 3 is pretty low, but he didn't make any bad turnover. I guess the low assists could be attributed to the talent he has around him in the summer league.

    Yeah, the 3 assist were pretty low, but he was willing to pass the ball and set guys up. A lot of his passes were just not converted or lead to fouls in our favor!
