Nobody outside of Miami's big three will make it, right?
If the Pacers only get two in, are they really going to get 7 players from the rest of the conference?
My wish was Danny could score at least 12 points against the Rockets. It happened tonight. My next wish is for him to reach 18 in Nets game.
JMO, but Lance's little dance is going to cost him money. I don't see the NBA being amused at all.
I will get criticized for this, but here it goes anyway. I really like Lance's game, I mean I like his talent, skills, passing, everything. But he rubbed me the wrong way tonight, to the point that I did not cheer when he got the triple double. I did not appreciate his antics, his celebrating was way over the top for me, his new shimmy or what ever it us, is uncalled for. If a celtics players had taken a very hard foul on him I would have been fine with it.
I have to believe his antics tonight also did not please Frank Vogel. I believe frank called the timeout right after lance got the triple double in order to get lance out so ge would not get another standing ovation.
Maybe i am an old fuddy dud, but to me that was a tainted triple double.
"Just look at the flowers ........ BANG"
If the Celtics dont like Lance's showboating then make the starters play the 4th quarter. You got spanked. Lance was dominating. Dont want him to dance? Stop him.
I can get what you're saying about his antics. I have no problem at all with his antics (I love them, actually) but that's because I never have a problem with players that celebrate good plays (I love Noah as well) but I can certainly see how they could rub someone the wrong way.
However, the triple double was in no way tainted. He earned that on the court because he had 7/9/8 at the end of the 3rd quarter while playing within the offense.
Ok ok good point. Maybe tainted is not the correct word. But I was embarrassed to the point where I did not want him to get the triple double. I kind of wanted him pulled before he got it
Has lance gotten a triple double in a close game yet?
@ScottAgness: West on Stephenson: "He definitely keeps us on our toes and keeps things light. … We’re going to be talking about [his moves] on the plane."
Boston fans and announcers had no problems with the extra curricular antics when it was KG doing them.
I saw an interview once with Method Man and they asked him why Raekwon and Ghostface always have beef with other rappers and his answer was: "Those guys hate everybody." Whenever I watch Lance play I think of that quote.
He wouldn't be Born Ready if it weren't for the antics. At least he's consistent. It's not like he only does it against lesser team like the Celtics. He enjoys taunting the Heat too. His teammates get a kick out of it, and he's been a huge reason for the team winning so many games this year. I have no problem with it and personally think it's hilarious. You take the antics away and you're simply left with Lance Stephenson instead of Born Ready.
Can you imagine what he would do if the clock was ticking down on a game in which the Pacers were going to eliminate the Heat? I think he would start doing cartwheels in front of the Heat bench. He might even moon the entire team.
Lance helps give the Pacers personality. That's good for the NBA with a Pacers-Heat series looming in May.

If you don't want to have Lance Stephenson airhump over your head you shouldn't be on the ground.

Frank Vogel says "Killer instinct, start strong, build a lead and then step on their throats."
