When a deal with the Indiana Pacers failed to materialize, Lance inked a one-year contract with the Lakers this summer.
Per the Indy Star:
“Magic (Johnson) called me and he told me LeBron was interested, very interested in me,” Stephenson said. As a teammate. Stephenson told Johnson, “Give me a few hours to make this decision.”
“I decided to go there and, hopefully, we will win a lot of games and have fun,” he said.
He expects all the taunting he did to James through the years – the blowing in the ear, the heckling to draw technical fouls, the bursting into the other team’s huddle – he expects James to ask him to turn that on the Lakers’ opponents.
“Yeah, he’s probably going to sic me on people,” Stephenson said. “It’ll be fun. It will be a very interesting year, just playing with him and winning games with him.”
