    Default Pulse of the fan base: Lance vs DC

    This question just came to me, and I thought it would be interesting to see the poll results on PD. If you could trade Lance Stephenson right now for Darren Collison to come back and be our backup point guard again, would you?

    What? I'd be shocked if this is even a question.

    I wouldn't want DC back under any circumstances. Not that he is a bad guy, but I don't see any need for him, and I certainly would not consider trading Lance for him

    Absolutely not, and I'm someone who liked DC quite a bit.

    No.

    This is not even close. Lance is more versatile. I would rather live with DJ and Lance than DC and Green I guess or whatever the combo would be.

    Beyond that I am really excited to see what Lance can do as the sixth man. Just hope he doesn't try to do too much.

    Hell no. Take lance all day. So much more potential even though their both young. Lance just has so much better size and intangibles. Dc is just a scorer who lacks defense. We wouldn't be where we're at right now if you replace lance with DC. He was the missing piece. Now add in a high quality scorer like Danny and the puzzle is complete = championship.

    I just can't imagine getting anyone to give a "yes" to this question.
    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!

    I like both players. I appreciate DC's ability to hit free throws and I love Lance's defense.

    Lance has more potential so I wouldn't trade him at the moment. I wouldn't be against bringing DC back but that's not possible at the moment and there's no reason to do so either.

    I voted no because I like Lance's ball movement and passing better. The scoring is about a wash with DC probably more likely to have a monster numbers game more often. IMO, Lance gives you much better defense, better floor spacing, better rebounding and b etter ball sharing than DC can or will.

    I'm not a fan of either player, but I don't see how making that swap is even debatable.

    Unanimous so far with "No". That does surprise me; I know Lance's stock has skyrocketed this season, but considering how brutal our backup PG situation (and general bench scoring) has been I thought the idea of plugging DC back into that role would be mighty tempting for at least maybe 1/3 of the voters.

    Plus, I'm assuming you all now assume Lance will no longer have any off court or locker room issues?

    The general consensus is that Lance can play as a backup PG so it makes sense. Plus DJ has slowly started to turn it around.

    I don't care for Lance's game so apparently the NBA isn't for me.

    But there is nothing about Darren Collison that I miss. This is a no-brainer.

    I can see how Lance and DC would be seen as very comparable players for this year. I certainly wouldn't trade them for the following 3 reasons:

    1) Team needs. With Granger still a question mark, the Pacers are IMO shallower at wing than at point guard. Moving Hill to wing would even it out, but I don't think the Pacers really benefit from that move.
    2) Both players might still not be done on the development curve, but Lance with his age, experience level, and tools should have a better chance of getting better. Lance might actually be an option as a starter in the future, while Hill's deal and Collison's experience make that pretty much impossible for him in Indiana.
    3) Collison is a RFA after this year and would likely not be retained, while Lance has another year on his deal for cheap.

    Those three factors make it a slam dunk IMO for Lance. It's not even particularly close.

    Shouldn't it be DC vs DJ pole.

    This pole makes little sense because of team needs.

    I'm surprised this poll is so lopsided. It would've been flipped at the beginning of the season. That's how far Lance has come.

    In my opinion it says more about Collison than Stephenson.

    I'm not crazy about either of them. Based on team needs, there's no way I'd trade Lance for DC right now. Lance is progressing and hopefully can take some lessons he's learned to the second unit with him when Danny returns. We could certainly use an injection of NBA-caliber play from our second-unit wings.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I was and still am a big supporter of DC. If he would be ok coming back as a backup, I would love to have him back. But for Lance, no way. For DJ or Green sure.

    Despite how poorly Augustin has played, does anyone really think Collison is significantly better?

    No, it shouldn't be DC vs DJ. For one, I think that poll would be more obvious than this one turned out to be (only this one was somewhat of a surprise to me), and for another I thought more people would consider it more of a fair trade, whereas apparently Lance has leap-frogged DC in value this season. Had they been seen as more close to equal with regards to trade value, then I think it made sense considering how unhappy we've been with our backup PG this year and no way in hell do I think Dallas would take DJ for DC.

    Yes. I think the better question is: does anyone not?

    Okay, so it's not just me then who's a little surprised. I figured Lance would win, but not this close to a unanimous vote.
