I think Im going to stay and keep working, Stephenson said. I dont think Ive had an NBA season this year so the best choice for me is to stay.

In high school, I was the man, Stephenson said. I could do everything on the court. I stayed on the court and never came out. Now we have players like me, just as good that can do what I do. I dont think its difficult. It just hasnt been flowing the way it usually is.

Those were his quotes. And I agree he's definitely become a bit more humble.

Lance Stephenson pretty much represents everything that is wrong with High School hype machines. Sure he's famous-ish, but has it made him an NBA lock? No. And it's probably made him so arrogant and spoiled that he won't develop into as good of a player as he could have.

It could be worse of course (Jeremy Tyler). At least Lance played pretty well at Cinci, just not well enough to be a first rounder as a freshman.

Believe it or not, NBA scouts and GMs judge you on how you perform in college and on your physical attributes. They don't care that you dominated scrubs on Staten Island.

Fixed. Losing some of the ego's obviously a good thing, but he didn't have much choice, not like his name's TJ Ford.

Forgot about Walker. Why did Walker declare? One time I heard it was because he wasn't going to legitimately make grades.

You guy are all MORONS. I should be paid to be an NBA scout, I am always right. Anybody with eyes can tell you Lance is a top 3 player in this draft class, he is a Tyreke Evans clone.

21 points 4 rebs 3 assists 8-10 FG in his summer league debut and was has down the best player on the court,and he went in the 2nd round.

And was defended by the 5'8 Jerome Randle most of the game. Stephenson looked good, but let's not ahead of ourselves.

Donte Greene actually looked really good in some spurts last season. Travis Diener putting up like 35 in a summer game's a better example.

I like Lance Stephenson. He needs to improve on his shooting and cutting down on no look passes but if he is moved to PG he really will shine in Indiana. 6'6 227 with a killer crossover.
