Lance Stephenson stopped by Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Saturday to support the Indiana Fever WNBA team. During a break, Stephenson and some fans participated in a game of Simon Says and one little kid thought it would be funny to reenact the now infamous blowing in LeBron’s ear moment. Lance was a good sport and laughed about it.
Despite all the silly antics and funny memes generated from them in the past week, Lance should be laughing all the way to the bank, either in Indiana or somewhere else next season, and he deserves every penny of it. Supposedly his antics did turn off some would be suitors that were more interested in acquiring his services during mid-season. Supposedly a few people in Indiana (and I’m not referring to Paul George because of his post-game answer) wouldn’t mind seeing the franchise leader in triple doubles leave either
The conundrum for the Pacers is this: With Stephenson Indiana will be pushing up close to the luxury tax line to keep this core together—the one with chemistry issues the second half of the season, the one that clearly is not better than Miami. However, let Stephenson walk and you lose one of the better shot creators on the team—the shortcomings of George Hill and the inability of Roy Hibbert to create shots for himself will be that much more glaring.
Stephenson has been a steal since the day he was drafted in the 2nd round. He’s been playing for peanuts ($3.3 million over 4 years) compared to most players in the league and although it’s going to take more than peanuts to sign the talented circus act, I’m willing to bet he’s still going to be a steal.
Just look at what he did to Durant and the Thunder in GM6!
