    Yeah, I see him as being a bit of a Jason Terry type, where he can come off the bench, handle the ball, and score in a hurry. Those are incredibly important, though, so no shame in that kind of ceiling.
    Guys like the Jet are normally not starters because of their defensive limitations, or because they don't being much else to the table aside from scoring. I think lance could excel in that role, but if he continues to improve, he could easily be a starting guard in this league. Take into consideration, at 22; he's about the age of most rookie players. When you combine that with the fact that he has that bulldog mentality that we all WISH Paul George had, if Vogel continues to keep him in the starting lineup and build on his confidence, the sky is the limit for lance.

    I wouldn't go as far as saying he's a D-Wade type of talent, I surely think he could be a Rodney Stuckey/Tyreke Evans type of player--if he continues to improve.

    There's a new Curt Cavin article about Lance.
    http://www.indystar.com/article/2012...kly-given-shot

    By the way, I wish the Star would put the authors name by the links to the stories. I almost didn't click on this one because I assumed it would be a Mike Wells article.

    Redemption stories are always my favorite kinds of stories. Especially when it will likely affect the team positively.

    If you're looking for blessings in disguise from the Granger injury, this would be one of them. Lance wouldn't have gotten this level of look most likely, and given his previously short leash, these past few games might have opened the door for him to contribute to this team over the long run. Otherwise, he might have blossomed for another team, after we made the coaching/time investment in him.

    He's putting it together. Not sure of many player matchups that'd physically pose a problem for him. If he gets it together, he could become a beast.

    Always have liked his game, but couldn't tell if he was going to get it together while on the roster.

    In Larry we trust.

    I think it's time the team looks at Lance to be the main facilitator on offense by making him control the ball more and make Hill be more of a scorer than a playmaker while DG is out. I think if they set more plays for Lance to dribble drive or make an iso it will create a lot of opportunities as he has above average court vision and passing, and at the same time he can really finish. With also his physical built and skills, I think Lance with either Hill, PG, Hans or Green it will be very beneficial if they will try to play more up-tempo and get more points from fast break.

    Lance is making me a believer this season. Btw, while we're naming and shaming, why not give props to 90s and McKeyFan who have been beating the Lance drum for a while. I'm sure there's others as well.

    Anyone think we can get our own version of Linsanity? Pacers still have an offensive void and Lance looks to be in good position to fill it. Would it surprise anyone at this point if Lance runs off a string of 20 point games this season? I think the new Lance is capable of it.

    I hope everyone is right about Lance. I see some good things. He certainly is not timid. He has the drive. He does
    NOT have Dwade athleticism. He has good strength and size. He is finally getting some minutes as he needs reps
    so he can find out what works in the NBA and what does not.

    Got a question for Born Ready?

    Area 55 Grand Poobah Joe Murphy passed this along to me, via former Area 55 member Zach "LANCE STEPHENSON FOR PRESIDENT" Brown, who happens to be the webmaster for the official Lance Stephenson website, bornready6.com (the number change hasn't quite taken effect with the website yet). Zach wants to gather a huge list of questions for "Born Ready" for a Q+A session on the site, so if you've got a question you've always wanted to ask Lance, now is your chance! Email any of them you'd like to see answered to redfoster@gmail.com .

    Just a repost from the A55/G2/PTO thread but noteworthy if you would like to interact with old Born Ready himself.

    Don't worry. It had nothing to do Lin and everything to do with the world's largest media market.

    It was a nice that he was able to succeed, but I don't really care that much.

    IMO the sky is the limit for both Lance and PG..... the one thing that Lance lacks is fear. In this case it's a plus. PG plays timid at times. Thats what sets them apart sometimes. To me. I love that about Lance he seems like he has that won't back down approach.

    You know how people are around here, expect the moon, then when they don't deliver it is a witch hunt if they just turn out to be a decent role player instead of the super mega star they imagined.

    I agree, hence my Rodney Stuckey comment. BUT I will say, it's easy for ppl to get excited bout a player like Lance because we've never really had a guy with his type of skills. (I.E creativity, ball handling, street swag, etc)

    Those things don't make you a star by any means, but it's nice to see because we always see those types of players on OTHER teams.

    At least in your mind.

    I've always been high on Lance, but I'll take somewhere around 12pts 4dimes 4boards and he'll be a huge success.

    The other thing that has surprised me about Lance is his conditioning. He looks ready to go all the time. I haven't really seen him laboring out there.

    Completely agree. Lance has a combination of entertainment and production value that would be beneficial for our market.

    I've been predicting he'll break out since his first summer. Ya'll's nanny admonitions of moderation ain't nothing but a thing.

    So that means that you are going to complain if he only averages 10ppg?
