12 NBA Young Guns To Watch (If There’s A Season)

By: 11.10.11

Player: Lance Stephenson
Team: Indiana Pacers
Year: Second

If physical abilities were the only requirement to be a great player in the NBA, the word “bust” wouldn’t be apart of our vocabulary. However, having the right mental approach is a huge factor in determining the success of a player and in this case we’re talking about Lance Stephenson. The second year man from Brooklyn has all the physical attributes in the world. Now the question centers around can he develop the correct mental approach to the game. Hopefully, last season’s demotion presses all the right buttons. There’s a nice nucleus of talent in Indy and ideally Lance would be one of the players the Pacers invest in to advance past the second round. — J. Tinsley
