There are only a handful of guys in the entire league that can reliably be given the ball and go get a basket. Sometimes players like Carmelo can devour the ball and be a ball hog when they take too many of those shots, but you have to know when and where to do it.
The only guy we had that can do that is Kemba, but you are asking a lot of your PG to bring it up the floor, create for everyone else during the game and be the finisher at the end of the game. Lance is someone Kemba can lean on to create assists for others and drill it from 3. Lance is a better 3pt shooter than Hendo. Teams were able to give Hendo space and play off him because he rarely ever took a 3pt shot, maybe 1-1.5x a game.
to put it in a few words... Lance'll make em dance, LANCE'LL MAKE EM DANCE!!!!
