draft express dot com, a website focused on each players value as an NBA prospect rather than a college prospect, has Lance listed as the #23 high school senior.

Look at all those none-one & dones he's ranked behind. You know why? Because he isn't a one & done either.

We have to see how well he does in college, but I am not truly sure about where he stands as a NBA player at this point.


Hes going to make a decision after his sexual assault thing is over with.


Because people who dont even follow HS basketball know of him in NYC, usually people learn about players once they are in college and become successful but Lance has been well known & documented since probably 8th grade.
The promotion aspect comes from his being a streetballer, it can definetly hype players up like Rafer Alston, Kenny Satterfield, and a few others who reached the NBA but didnt make it past the final cut.


Sure, but its almost certainly going to be just 1 year of college.




People fail to realize that Caracter was once about 6'7 220 as a HS freshman and was the #1 HS freshman in the country espescially after how well he performed at the ABCD camp, then grew into a poor mans Big Baby.


Why are you defending this kid like he's your brother.

Your the only one who thinks he will be a great player.
Why don't you just hop off his nuts huh??

BR is a burnout.

Funny how you had that quote about Caracter.
Same exact thing w/ BR.
He was 6'4 200 as a freshman. Played good at the ABCD camp.
Was undoubtly the #1 frosh in the country.
Look at him now.
Nobody wants him.

Your opinion means absolutely nothing.

And Lance is much more talented than Character.

Just the ones mentioned currently, but who knows who else may join in his recruitment after his case issue is done with.

People fail to realize he had shut down his recruitment since the McDonalds All American Game, nothing said directly from Lance or his camp since.

he'll probably leave the city, but does SJU have a shot at landing him? would be good to put em back on the map

on the other hand, most phenoms who go to sju end up in the trash

St.Johns is out of the picture, the goal was to get him out of the city, not move him from Brooklyn to Queens.

I think thats probably worst case scenario, that means after his case is cleared and everyone currently in on his recruitment says "We'll pass".

FIU would be perfect for both sides, Lance goes to a team full of good Juco players & average returning players while putting up 20-25 PPG leading them through the Sun Belt.

While their success keeps Zeke at FIU relevant and on Sportscenter every day, while maybe gaining interest from other good 1 & Done recruits in 2010.

Seriously, the kid is not well regarded enough by NBA scouts to be considered a 1 & done before he's even played a game in college. Read draft express' profile on him, they mention that all he does is take bad shots, blame his teammates when he makes defensive mistakes, and that he isn't as capable of driving as he used to be because other kids in his class have caught up physically.

It really isn't just Lance's choice of whether he wants to be a 1 & done, if he doesn't perform at a level that justifies it he wouldn't be a high first rounder. It is up to NBA scouts and GMs. It isn't just possible, but is in fact likely that he won't be scoring 20-25 ppg in his first season, and if he brings all sorts of off-court issues, ego, and dumb decisions on the court, most NBA teams will look elsewhere entirely. There are plenty of returning players with NBA talent, and at least half a dozen HS class of 2009 players who are more likely to be drafted first round.

That being said, he will probably make the NBA at some point, and the Knicks or Nets especially might pick him just because people in NYC know him.


Anyways, if this ****ing prima donna is to good to pick a school like everyone else, I don't care anymore. I literally don't care anymore where he ends up. Before, I actually was interested in where he would end up, much like I was interested where every other 5-star recruit would end up. But the saga has gone on to long, it's become a joke. Lance Stephenson is not a significant enough recruit for me to keep caring which college he plays for, because he probably will not make that team significantly better. He is a me-first, me-second player. If he ends up at St. John's, they won't be contending for the Big East title, they still wouldn't even make the NCAA tournament. A lot of schools would probably be worse off for having him 1 or 2 years.

So I will re-iterate, I don't give a **** anymore where Lance Stephenson ends up.
