I'm cautiously optimistic when it comes to Lance. Of course I'm hoping it'll work out between us and him, but at the same time, I am a little concerned about what could happen if he ended up becoming the player he can be. Would he let the attention get to his head, or would he be mature enough to handle it like a professional? Lord knows the Pacers don't need another Artest-like situation.
I'm clearly on the "Lance is a SG not a PG" bandwagon, but I also don't think it's fair to look at him on a personal level.

He's a kid. Has he made some mistakes, yea. Has he been unprofessional. Yea. But he is quite young. Guys need to grow up. I don't know that it's fair to worry about him over the other players. People make mistakes in their lives, I'm sure most don't want to be judged for things they did when they were 17 or 18.
