    Holy **** person. Both AJ and Lance are on the Pacers. Why in the **** are we bashing our own players? Come on. This is disgusting.

    Lance is all Rucker park baby!

    This guy is ridiculous with those handles. He also makes some jaw dropping passes. The Kid is talented, Like I said he reminds me so much of Tyreke Evans. But I need to see some more from him. He needs to look for his shot more and more, I am more comfortable with him holding the ball than Paul. Paul's handles are just plain ugly.

    I really look forward to how they use Lance tonight.

    Out of curiosity, what leads you to think that? Even Lance's biggest fans would tell you that it's too small of a sample size to draw such a conclusion.

    When talking about basketball IQ, I'd look at vets like David West, who spent countless hours studying tape of Karl Malone. Then I'd look at four year college players like Roy Hibbert, who developed at one of the best programs in the country, under one of the best coaches, and who also has an eagerness to pick up anything and everything from some of the best big men in the game.

    I agree with you when you say that Lance has a natural feel for the game. I think what's clear is that he has exceptional vision and the talent to make passes that others couldn't make or wouldn't even attempt. That much we can deduce from even the few minutes he's played. But I wouldn't confuse this with basketball IQ, yet.
    I say that because having a great feel for the game is the way I measure a players IQ. It's a combination of instincts, vision and knowledge of the game. I think he has the best feel for the game on the team. And for players in the NBA his age, I think he has as high of a basketball IQ as any one.

    You have to remember, he's barely 21 years old. David West knows what he knows because he is about 10 years ahead of Lance, in life and his career. Roy Hibbert has been a starter for 4 years and has 4 years at Georgetown to draw from. That is a ton of life experience. Lance is just 3 years out of high school, and hasn't even cracked 200 minutes of NBA game action yet. He hasn't had an opportunity to learn all that stuff yet. But for a kid his age, his basketball intelligence is remarkably high. He just has to learn his limitations through game experience.
