    What I hate most is Lance "dancing" at the three point line with his dribblings...recipe for desaster.

    I like the dancing when we're winning.

    When we're losing it's frustrating as hell.

    I guess I can see the difference between lance and bease now, lance does all that dancing but ends up still being in the same spot and just taking a perimeter shot most of the time....Bease just catches and goes most of the time in a straight line, but that seems to be more effective right now lol

    Bump from the second page. Dude put on a show out there when it looked like we were going to give up the lead. Good stuff.

    His "creativity" with the ball can be frustrating as hell. His double spin last night was interesting. You can see Luke's bald spot growing with some of Lance's decisions. That said, he's easily one of my favorites on this roster. You don't find much higher entertainment value than when Lance is making them dance and draining 3s or breaking down the D and slashing to the rim. Who doesn't love a good air guitar solo? I'm very surprised with how well he has played for us, that he is one of our best shooters and can play point in a pinch which has been needed more than anyone would've predicting entering the season.

    That doesn't mean much when everybody sucks at shooting.

    Yes he is (very) entertaining for the people paying money to see these guys but as you said he can be very frustrating. You just never know if he is serious or just having fun.

    He can play without a question. Lance is a solid talent but his dancing etc. hurts his "professional" image. Amazing in one game, frustrating as hell the next game. Coaches and players and fans don't appreciate genius and insanity changing up every other night.

    Not a fan. He's a clown as far as I am concerned. I figured Maginka was signing him, Beas, KCP in case they needed salary filler to combine with the kids in a big trade at some point.

    Player of the game tonight. Timely shots and great energy when everyone else looked like they wanted to sleep.

    He's a clown who is subject to terrible decisions but he's hitting much needed 3s and his craziness can be a huge spark at times too

    His gameplay is the pure definition of playing with fire. It's cool, but it can get you burnt.

    Career high shooting from 3 though - 40% on 142 attempts so far this year.

    He's not nearly as physically intimidating or crazy, but it is nice to have a player who's sanity is questioned and the opponents won't F with.

    Might need a new air guitar after last night, that thing was getting some work with those huge shots.

    Lance needs to do that elbow to Harden instead of Boban
