yep. he better.
pacers have given him a better offer than anyone else has been willing. it's a pretty simple matter really. many of us are aware of players over the years who never got paid like they were capable of. artest the player was a special talent who could have been around a max contract with his all round game. but he never got close to one of those deals because of his b.s.
image is everything and lance's image around the league is that he is talented but he can also be trouble. that stupid crap he was pulling in the miami playoffs (and let's face it- multiple other cases during the season) did him zero favors and he has only himself to blame for that.
