    Lance in his natural element n i love it! Born Ready!!!! such a slam favorite for real, glad this kid is having success in the league, many ppl have been praying on his downfall since his lincoln hs days

  • Jay Cutler

    Never thought I’d see Lance get Kobe type calls. You couldn’t even breathe on dude!

  • The Mighty FV

    2:54 video and he used his left hand to score once. Always goes right, pay attention defenders.

  • Dfrance

    Harden always goes left, sometimes you just can’t stop it. (Not putting lance on Hardens level by any means)

  • Dfrance

    The in-and-out dribble and shovel pass at :40 is just filthy.

  • i_ball

    Exactly what I thought. A lot of players drive on their strong side almost exclusively but he should be able to do better with his left in pick up games.

  • The Seed

    Can he play like this for the Pacers, then we can talk. Those are scrubs he is playing against.

  • LLC#12

    Can he really still be called Born Ready? Born-kinda-ready-but-didn’t-do-much-his-first-two-seasons-and-is-only-just-beginning-to-contribute is much more appropriate.

  • King David

    so proud of you Lance, thought you were going to be another Bassy…

  • spit hot fiyah

    i hope that catches on

  • LakeShow

    He already has.
    Did you watch the playoffs? He played like a big boy.

  • LakeShow

    Announcer needs to get a new catch phrase or two.

  • TR

    Hes just one of hte whackest people doing it right now

  • danpowers

    compare his demeanor to kevin durant’s demeanor playing during the summer. do i have to say more?

  • Caboose

    Shout out to Ginobili…

    Love it

  • Bruce Wayne

    Last time I checked, Bassy was still in the NBA, making millions. Definitely not a failure in my book

  • Da Real

    Might be the best tournament in NY right now

  • King David

    lol real talk but he still sucks for all that hype

  • Will Lee

    no. 4 purple frustrated like he had a chance lol

  • keyon dooIing

    good to know this guy still can’t go left. bodes well for other East contending teams

  • Damjan Vlastelica

    “The San Antonio Spurs’ Manu Ginóbili is a statistical freak: he has no
    imbalance whatsoever in his game — there is no one way to play him that
    is better than another. He is equally efficient both off the dribble and
    off the pass, going left and right and from any spot on the floor” Source D Morey (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/15/magazine/15Battier-t.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0)

  • playa

    All he did(in the video at least) was bullying his way via phisical drives& hit couple stand still threes, this is how I play too when my opponents are playing like 12 year-old boys compared to me.He didn’t show any moves,any skills, NOTHING.And there was this smug on his face all the time like he’s the best thing since slice bread,jeeeeeez……Im definately not impressed.

  • thebossman15

    u just described lebrons offense in a nutshell #skillLevel0

  • The Seed

    6 games out of the playoffs don’t count. He was all over the place, if he actually play well, they beat Heat. Go rewatch the series and watch suppose Born Gone.

  • Caboose

    Really? You’re going to cite a 4.5 year old article? Where it claims that Shane Battier is the best defender in the league? That should tell you how outdated it is.

    If you watched the Finals, you’d know that Manu struggled mightily when the Heat forced him to finish with his right hand. I’m sure someone can pull the stats up for me on that.

  • Joshua Maria Peter Bautista

    I wonder if Mike Breen would ever say that live. Bang.

    He nailed some open 3s and got some layups against scrubs. He only dunked twice! These are the kind of highlights u can find in any YMCA pickup game.
