Can Lance Stephenson Prove Himself?
New season, same questions surrounding Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson.
Can the New York City street ball star transform his blacktop game to the NBA?
Is Stephenson mature enough to handle being a rotation player?
Is he a point or shooting guard?
Stephenson has to answer to those questions quickly, not only to keep his current spot in the rotation, but to also remain part of the Pacers’ bright future. His contract is not guaranteed beyond this season.
“I know I have to prove myself,” Stephenson said. “I’m just trying to work hard, stay on the floor and produce. I want to show everybody that I improved in the summer.”
