Blogcat's Take, 7/26 - A closer look at Mar...

Forgive me, but last week’s Lance Stephenson signing was so sensational that it completely obscured two other acquisitions: Marvin Williams and Brian Roberts.

Hornets’ Kemba Walker excited about addition of Lance Stephenson

There are 165 kids on the court at Kemba Walker’s basketball camp, some as young as 8 years old. What were you like as a player at 8? “I was bad,” says Walker, the Charlotte Hornets’ point guard. Bad as in he’s a bad man or a bad 8-year-old? “No,” says Walker. “Bad.” Obviously he’s past that. Al Jefferson was Charlotte’s best player last season, but Walker...

Kravitz: Larry Bird can't understand why Lance Stephenson bolted

In the end, flashing the choke sign at LeBron James and then blowing in the King's ear wasn't the silliest thing Lance Stephenson ever did. The most foolish thing Stephenson and his lawyer/agent, Alberto Ebanks, did was turning down the Pacers' five-year, $44 million contract. Do the math. If he had stayed, he would have earned a guaranteed $44 million, more than enough...
