In an interview with Dana Benbow for the Indy Star, Stephenson told the tale of Magic Johnson calling him to say that LeBron wanted him and then he used his imagination to visualize what it will be like to be on LeBron’s side.
Stephenson projects to have a reserve role with the Lakers this season. It will be interesting to see how his role evolves on a night-to-night basis and how many minutes he takes from some of the Lakers younger pieces.
Much like Dennis Rodman, and currently Draymond Green, Lance will be used to get in the other’s teams head, and try to irritate them as much as possible. It never hurts to have someone a bit off on your side.
