Last week, eccentric guard Lance Stephenson decided to join LeBron James in Los Angeles. Immediately after signing with the Lakers, Stephenson took to Instagram give the Pacers organization and their fans a heartfelt thank you for treating him so well over the years.
While speaking to reporters on Friday Pacers GM Kevin Pritchard gave Stephenson a backhanded compliment when he said that Lance was sometimes the best player on the court for his team and sometimes Lance was the best player on the court for the opposing team.

“At the end of the day, Lance gave us some great years,” Pritchard said. “We love Lance. We love Lance on the court, we love Lance off the court. Sometimes, he was the best player on our team and sometimes he was the best player on the other team.”
Lance saw Pritchard’s comment and decided to fire back.
While Stephenson can be a bit aloof at times you can’t question his competitive spirit when he was on the Pacers roster.
