Lance, once again, provided energy and swag.

He scored 10 points and added 5 assists in 17 minutes of action.

PS: That no-look pass to Zubac was sick!

Lance is so frusterating at times but its so hard not to love the energy he's bringing, if he's gonna be playing primary ball handler (which I suspect he won't since Rondo/Zo/Bron/BI will be in at all times) he needs to distribute. He does some boneheaded ISO stuff, but he legit is just our new MWP, Mr. No, Noo, Nooo. YESSSS! Anyway I'm rooting for him.

his razzle dazzle style is fun to watch, but when Ball comes back, he’ll run the 2nd unit more often.

But Lance is a gonna be great for us. He reminds me of Metta with his NY rough, edgy style of play. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

Man I didn't realize Lance was so entertaining he's already become a crowd favorite that skipping thing he does is crazy on the serious side he's not a bad player at all

Lance is baller and an entertainer. He feeds off the crowd and turns that positive energy into a show (most times good but sometimes bad). But Lance will be Lance no matter where he plays.

I can't wait to see Lance's 1st assist in transition to Mouth Wagner. Luke will have to take a timeout with all the celebration between Those two!

Lance is going to be an LA staple (no pun intended), in the sense that local businesses will be reaching out to him to sponsor their brand (for some reason, Wally George just popped up in my head). He's got that vibe, and I for one enjoy his energy. "Cal Worthington Ford would like to introduce its newest spokesperson, Lance Stephenson!" Go see Lance go see Lance go see Lance!

He's like MWP with the dial turned up to 11, which I didn't think was possible. Also love how he palms the ball like a grapefruit.

At the most he'll get "home theAtre" radio spots like Devean George.

But lest we not forget, George was a Laker for 7 years. He earned those home theater radio spots,

Lance plays like:

A) a blackout drunk Kobe
B) a more athletic Jim Carrey in the Cable Guy
C) A slightly more efficient Philip Seymour Hoffman in Along Came Polly
D) A glitching 71-overall create-a-player in 2k

He played good on both ends tonight. I was actually impressed with his D this game. It hadn't looked great in some other games this preseason. He's going to be a hit or miss player. One good game, one bone headed game. Hopefully Luke is able to recognize early on when he's having an off night and reduces his minutes.

I played with a couple of players who were really bad against average teams. Just couldn't find motivation against them.
But in big games vs top level teams/players they were a terror on defense.
This is were I see Lance

He's terrible, can't stand watching him. He better be a great locker room guy to make up for his awful play. Praying he doesn't play.

If by breaking down, you mean kills ball movement, does a bunch of moves that don't work, and then takes a contested 2, sure. Hate watching him. This is like people who like watching Nick Young dance around and take awful shots. It's terrible basketball.
