The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off of one of the most disappointing seasons that they have had in quite some time, but they are looking to re-tool once again around Kobe Bryant this offseason. They have some cap space and are looking to bring in a talented free agent or two, and they also hold the seventh overall pick in the NBA Draft. That being said, they are most likely to look to free agency for the most improvement to their roster.

One name that has come up and would make a lot of sense is Indiana Pacers shooting guard Lance Stephenson. There are five reasons that Stephenson makes sense in Los Angeles.

    Mentally he’s a mess, because he wasn’t picked by the eastern coaches for the ASG, he ruined the pacers season, I can see him next to kobe becoming another Smush Parker.

      He ruined the Pacers season? You sound like a dipshit. If it weren’t for Stephenson contributing in all facets all season long, the Pacers would never have had this season. People like you let media blurbs shape your entire opinion of a player and its just pathetic. He didn’t do shit to ruin Indiana’s season. Indiana ruined their season as a team by playing like shit on both ends of the floor down the stretch & failing to string together wins at the end of the season & in the playoffs. People that blame a “bad season” on one player obviously don’t understand the sport.
