Hang Time One-On-one … With Lance Stephenson

HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — Lance Stephenson didn’t hear his name called when the Eastern Conference All-Star reserves were announced. It was yet another humbling moment for a player who has experienced his fair share during the early stages of his NBA career.

Stephenson, the Indiana Pacers’ blossoming star guard, leads the NBA in triple-doubles and has expanded his game over the past three years. He’s far from a finished product and at 23 is one of the league’s more interesting young talents, a player with plenty of promise but also one who must continue smoothing out the rough edges.

The Brooklyn native, who has been famous at Rucker Park (where he’s known as “Born Ready”) for over a decade, joins us in the latest installment of our Hang Time One-On-One series to talk about his where his game is now, the influence of Larry Bird, the Pacers’ rivals from South Beach and more:

    Johnson, Wade and Bosh didn’t deserve to be all star this year: what about Affalo, Stephenson or Al Jefferson? Quite amazed and dissapointed of some choices…

    He shoulda been an all-star this year. But they decided to elect Joe Johnson, the SG for a team barely in the playoff race instead. I totally understand MIA having 3 all-stars (even though one only plays half the games) and IND only having 2 (even though Stephenson blossoming this year is the main reason they are currently in first)….sarcasm.
