    I still don't trust him, but I always admired the talent. And at this point things are looking promising. Hopefully he continues to grow without Brian Shaw around.
    I didn't trust him for a long time, but I don't see any reason to not trust him at this point.

    Larry knows.

    I think shooting guard is exactly where he needs to be. Best position for his size, skills, and defensive matchups, he still pairs well with George Hill, and that doesn't mean you still can't run some offense through him from that spot anyway.
    Yeah, exactly, this was my argument when we were having all of those put Lance at point discussions, maybe for a few minutes a game, but the guy has always thrived as a play making 2.

    Problem is, he's not playmaking enough.

    Point guard/shooting guard . . . it can really become semantics. Lance is better at initiating the offense. He should do it the most--not GHill, not DJ, not PG.

    Good for Kravitz, the guy is doing what many here can't do or don't want to do, admit that they were wrong.

    Great article. I was wrong about Stephenson as well. His turnaround has been miraculous this season. He has just been amazing.

    And him emerging as a rebounding machine in the playoffs? That's just mindblowingly good.
    He is an unbelievable combination of speed and strength. I hate when he stands on the perimeter and doesn't get involved. You are now seeing what he can do when he is locked in and involved on both ends. The other team has to factor him into their game plan because he could be a rebounding demon.

    Well let me be the first to say... I appreciate you acknowledging Kravitz admitting he was wrong, while at the same time, acknowledging the constant struggle you (and others) have to do the same thing on here. Some people would have come in here and just pointed fingers at everyone else. I think this is a good first step for you.

    Bad:

    Stephenson, a native New Yorker, smiled. He knew what the man wanted. A headline.

    Stevenson: “If we win Game 2, it’s over.”

    Good:

    The good thing about Stephenson is, he’s got a lot of dog in him.

    The bad thing about Stephenson is, he’s got a lot of dog in him.

    Except Lance DIDN'T give them that headline.

    His potential for greatness is at point guard, and i think he is ready for it now.
    i beg to differ, hes better as a 2 guard, maybe a small amount of point, depending on injuries and so forth!!, im glad lance has worked out, now if we can keep our nucleaus of d-west, and lance and hibbert and PG24, we should be championship bound similar to the pistons championship team, no superstars, but we play as one and we are big all over, as stephen a. smith says, we have some big boys all over

    Masterfully done. First time I haven't be annoyed by the fact that putting someone on your block list doesn't keep them from showing up in quoted replies.

    I'm pretty sure you're right. It just wasn't very clear. Not well written.

    It sure makes you wonder if pigs will fly again somewhere next season.

    Not for me though. I won't make the same mistake again and write off a player Larry Legend picked before he even got a chance to prove himself.
