    Default Lance.

    The Lance bashing is getting pretty lame, so quick poll.

    If Lance were to make a positive contribution to the Pacers success next season, would you feel like an ***?

    Most people don't bash him for his basketball skills...

    In all likelyhood if he makes a positive contribution over the course of the next season he's ceased being a massive disruption (by all accounts), grown up a little, and done something like ya know, not getting arrested or suspended.

    If he does those things I see no reason why most of the board wouldn't root for him or cheer him on or hope he suceeds.

    Worst case he looks amazing and his trade value skyrockets. Noone wants him to look bad.

    Apparently he's spending the offseason in Indy working out. High five Lance!

    Every time I hear about Lance and his brood moving here permanently I get flashbacks to Artest and his dog feces infested house.

    No. Based on his attitude and actions, he deserves the criticism he garnered.

    This is not to say that he can't change his ways, grow and redeem himself. I would love to see it. That is up to him though. And for me, it will take more than just skills on the court. He needs to grow up period. If he does that, I will congratulate him.

    Until then, he has earned the kick in the behind the team and fans have given him. I certainly won't feel like an *** for criticizing his nonsense behavior.

    Not at all. He gave us the reasons to bash him. Sure he's a talented basketball player, we never bashed him for that, it's his off-court skills that didn't please everyone so well.

    I'd like for Vogel to give him consistent minutes next season. Give him AJ's minutes or even Brandon's minutes (if he's actually still here).

    Lance is a combo guard so I don't really care what we use him at.

    Also as far as his character goes, if he's been hanging out and working out in Indy and with the players in the community, that's a great way for him to mature.

    I saw he was at the Indianapolis Zoo for community service.

    Good to see.

    I want this work. I want him to stay here and be a good guy because he's a damn good baller.

    i think he is going to prove everybody wrong this year. He has to be somewhat great if Larry praises him so much. And hearing Clark Kellog say that he has come along way with his maturity sounds nothing but good for the team

    I'm not justifying his problems but I always thought if a kid kept getting in trouble you give them something to do to keep him away from it. He's the most explosive offensive player we have. Give him a chance on the court and watch his problems off the court go away. I've seen this time after time.

    I will definitely feel like an *** because putting a ball in to a hoop eliminates all possible questions about a man's character.

    Sure you give them other (high 6 figure income) options, it's on them to take them. He's not "explosive." PG, McBob, and maybe Infenro are a good ways above anyone else on the roster in that regard, if we're using the actual definition anyway. Not that being "explosive" matters.

    I'd like examples on the whole "put him on the floor and watch" angle. Neither's related to the other. Don't know Lance personally at all, don't know what he's going to do with an almost annual million dollar income, but to say "hey play him, that'll sort him out?" C'mon, you know that makes no sense.

    Frankly, I just wouldn't mind the Lance experiment being over because the dude's a very limited 2nd round pick with clear attitude problems. He gets his head together elsewhere, good for him, wish him luck. Honestly step back and ask yourself what the guy can offer that couldn't be easily found every single offseason w/o the headaches and PR problems. Just think some of his supporters are far overestimating his talent; this ain't the And 1 tour. Didn't want him at draft time, don't want him now.

    Will I feel like an ***? Not in the slightest bit.

    Will I feel surprised. Immensely.

    In my opinion, his talent level is not nearly high enough to make up for his lack of a brain. Obviously, Bird thinks it is. Hopefully he's right.

    Is it just me but anytime I see a new Lance thread. I first think "crap what has he done now?". So glad he hasn't done anything.

    I don't think anyone here is actively rooting against Lance. We just don't want anymore headaches or distractions, as we've been there...done that. If he can mature both on and off the court, the Pacers will have another asset at their disposal.

    Yes, I'd feel like an *** for a low risk 2nd round pick becoming a big part of the Pacers future because I questioned his off court decisions he made that include an arrest, solicitation, and team disciplinary actions, in a 9 month period. I don't how you couldn't.

    I'd like to thank all for their responses to the question. Im happy this wasnt viewed as a fire starter thread. I just got a little tired of all the Lance-Lashing .

    I truly believe that this kid has potential to be something that we can be proud of on and off the court as Pacers fans. He was truly a minimum risk/high reward pick by Bird and I have faith that the kid is taking the right steps in the growth process. It will take some time for most of us to get over his shortcomings as a misguided 19 year old rookie, but thats just the first chapter of the story.

    With that being said, I definitely would feel like an *** if he screws up any further.

    Much Love PD!
