Stephenson's four year run at Brooklyn's Lincoln High School is the stuff of legend. He carried them to four straight state championships, and was regarded as the best high school player to ever come out of New York. But everyone knew he was a knucklehead. That's why, instead of going to a big-time school like Kentucky or Duke, Lance had to settle for Cincinnati. After some off-the-court issues, Stephenson is finally showing potential this year with the Pacers. The kid is tough and can ball. Hopefully he can keep his head on his shoulders.
