Forever in the hearts of Pacers fans, Stephenson captivated us with his antics.
There was something magical about the little bit of chaos that came with Lance Stephenson every time he hit the basketball court. The man nicknamed “Born Ready” never became a perennial all-star or really amazed anyone on the basketball court (outside of Indiana that is).
But the energy that he brought to the court with his air guitars, blowing in the ear of the greatest player on earth, fearless approach captivated Pacers fans. And it seemed the magic only happened when the Pacers were in town, as anytime Lance went to other teams or on the road there never was quite the same magic.
He absolutely starts at the shooting guard spot and might be the MVP of this starting lineup given how loved he is by the modern Pacers’ fanbase.
But of course, we have four more starting spots we must fill and that means we need to look next to the power forward position, one the Pacers have struggled to fill in recent years.
