Is there any “highlight” clip on earth that sums up “Tryin’ To Do Too Much” more than this Lance Stephenson example:
enigmatic dynamic mercurial versatile some-timey basketball-pseudo-star, newest edition to the Memphis Grizzlies, Lance Stephenson, is a tough fortune cookie to crack. Stephenson had his best season when he was starting and getting 35 minutes a game in Indiana where he averaged 13.6 ppg, 4.6 ast, and 7.2 reb per game. But when he was traded to the Hornets he was quickly demoted to rotational duties, then while with the Clippers he literally started at every position on the floor, except center, at one time or another. Towards the end of his LA story, he came off the bench, averaging a measly 15 minutes per game, proving that Doc Rivers and company had no effing clue what to do with him.
