Some thoughts on Stephenson

53 posts in this topic

We all put up with Stephen Jackson's bs and didn't get near the return that we should get from Lance. I'm firmly on board this train.

Good point. That's the first time it's been said around here. (sarcasm)

I'm hoping that us taking a chance on him is a big factor. Think if Charlotte fans embraces him and gives him a fresh start without hanging is past over his head every time he turns around (wipe the slate clean) could also play a big factor.

Tell that to Rick (Bonnell).

Stephenson is a complete package. From a basketball standpoint, he can do everything. He has great size and athleticism. He's still very young, yet experienced. He's the ultimate competitor & has a great work ethic.

Not saying it's gonna happen, but Stephenson has the tools to be a top 5-10 player in the NBA. I think he can develop into a superstar that is the centerpiece of a championship team.

Just by watching him play you see flashes of a great player that can do things that most players simply cannot. I don't find it hard to see why Bird & MJ love this guy so much. They were both hard workers & ultimate competitors. Just like Lance.

I meant to ask... but, I didnt get to see Lance's full presser b/c of buffering issues on my phone. So, was Cho asked what this meant for Hendo?

What excites me is that he has a complete game...shooting, defense, half court offense, ball handling, etc. combined with the fact that he has the skillet to also drop 40 on any given night and that he is fearless and tough as nails.

 

His shooting needs to get better for me to label him the total package. 

 

35% is just respectable. 

 

If he can shoot 40+% from 3 then he will def be the complete total package. 

 

Lance's problem is that he is too unselfish. We are gonna need him to look to score more for us than what he is use to or prefers to do.

-Charlotte offers Henderson to Orlando

-Charlotte offers Henderson to Denver

-Charlotte drafts PJ Hairston

-Charlotte signs Lance Stephenson

I think it's pretty clear what it means for Henderson and how the team views him.

Ray Allen & Reggie Miller are arguably the two greatest 3pt shooters in basketball history. They shot .398% & .395% from 3pt, respectively, for their career.

In order for you to consider Lance a good 3pt shooter and a complete player he needs to be the greatest 3pt shooter of all time.

Brilliant analyst.

One thing to point out, Allen and Miller did that on many attempts a game. When you only take a few a game it can slightly skew your real percentages. If I had to bet id say Lance takes considerable less 3's a game than those two. 

 

I guess it depends on how you are looking at or defining a complete player. ie Someone that is great at everything vs. Someone who has no holes in their game. 

 

Outside of being more aggressive offensively, Lance doesn't have a single hole in his game. So on second thought,  I wouldnt object to someone labeled him a complete player.

Lance is one of the most aggressive offensive players in the league. You don't have to shoot 40 times to be aggressive. He's a ball dominant player who is either shooting or driving & creating for teammates almost every play.
