A new look at Lance Stephenson



I'll admit it. I'm one of the people who heard about Sepehenson's troubles in New York and concluded this was another bad actor, a one-and-done guy who'll bush-league his way through a year at Cincinnati and then take his attitude somewhere else.  Maybe the NBA, maybe some backwater place in Europe, who knows.

 

But Stephenson apparently isn't the guy I thought he was.  There's an SI.com story here http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/paul_daugherty/01/13/stephenson/index.html?cnn=yes that says as much.  It's a nice read, and it's nice to learn that a kid can mature enough to get excited about a 3.5 gpa.  Granted, he probably won't hang around four years and graduate, but it looks as if he's a young man who has realized that there's a down side to all the perks young basketball phenoms often receive.  It's a refreshing read and I commend it to your attention.
