        Update: His act is playing very well over there. Went for a career record 45, 10, and 9 earlier today. They can't guard him.

          From Zags. Man, this is rough. Lance was set to sign with the Pacers again for this abbreviated season but since he played in China he got blocked by NBA policy on COVID-19.

              I wish the best for Lance. You cant help but think things would have turned out better career wise for him if hed come back to school for at least one more year. He is at least very entertaining!

                That would have required him being a student in good academic standing. His plan was never to stay more than one year and he didn't even want to do that but the rules forced him too. You're right another year would have helped but probably us more than him. The same thing can be said about almost all the guys who leave school early chasing the dream and the $. Lance will someday be a good 30 for 30 story of immense talent with marginal results. He could definitely be entertaining and capable of the spectacular and was known as a great NBA defender. I hope he can make it back for another run in the league and his Covid / China situation was just unlucky timing.

                  Who knows what classes he was in and obviously the name of the game was eligibility. But is there anything to suggest he wasn't in good academic standing?

                  "Lance Stephenson did great (academically)," Cronin said. "He was over 3.0 (grade point average) in his time at Cincinnati, but he wasn't around enough to even be close to an associate's degree." https://www.cincinnati.com/story/spo...dones/7647771/

                    I had heard that knowing he was leaving one and done, he had a soft schedule and rarely attended. That was the rumor mill from on campus but I can't substantiate that. Remember these guys really only needed to stay eligible for one semester as the season would be done before the second one ended. He had eligibility issues coming out of high school which is why he was available so late. Hard to believe he developed good study habits in 4 months at UC.

                        Plus he's a movie star!! I just saw the movie "Fatale" a few weeks ago and in the movie Hillary Swank is having an affair with a sports agent. Who is in the office meeting with him? Lance Stephenson! So he has the residuals from this cameo which I am sure doesn't add up to much.

                          Wow! Good for him. I guess we shouldn't be too worried for his well being. Thanks for sharing and I hope he is wise with his money. Congrats Lance.
