Not sure why no one ever mentions Lance Stephenson. I love the guys attitude and he plays tough. I know he's easy to dislike but i grew up an Iverson fan lol.
As a warriors fan now, I would've been cool trading Thompson for Love (who I don't like) if I knew we'd replace Klay with Lance. GS could've beat the clippers if they were just a little tougher. GS is too soft imo and Lance would bring that toughness you need in the postseason.
I think people don't mention it because Lance/PJ is a dangerous combo and not in a good way
That's either homer-ism or insanity. I'd take LeSean McCoy alone over Jstew and Dwill and I'd pay him twice as much as I'd pay the combination of those two. LeSean McCoy was that entire offense last year. The dude is a monster and truly a game changer. If you watched Eagles' games, you'd have seen that McCoy created so many plays in the backfield where he should've been down for a loss or no gain and ended up with 10+ yards, and his line had nothing to do with that. McCoy is like a Bo Jackson or Barry Sanders (not quite as good) in today's league. DeAngelo is old and Stewart is mr. exercise bike. And add in Sproles out of the backfield for the receiving game, just another weapon. And I know the Eagles don't have Bryce Brown any more but they are paying him and he is honestly better than both Stew and Williams at this point. Chris Polk is added depth. Yes their line is better... But McCoy is also an elite talent that Stew and Will don't even come close to at this point in their careers. I'd rather have Double Trouble in their prime, but they aren't in their prime now.
I didn't say I didn't want Shaddy... I just said if I could pick between the duo or core of RB's I'd go with ours. If Shady goes down can Polk or Sproles have a successful season? Now if they still had Brice Brown it'd be a tougher choice
