Pacers Fans: Who Was “Born Ready”?

Q: Who leads the Indiana Pacers in double-doubles this season?

A: Lance Stephenson

Lance having more ten-by-ten games than the seven footer Roy Hibbert is interesting since we would expect their center to be a good rebounder.  The fact is that this year he has been very good on the offensive glass but lacking on the defensive boards.

I am not going to get caught up in Hibbert’s lack of defensive rebounding since, as I wrote last weekend when they acquired Andrew Bynum, Indiana is the best defensive rebounding team in the NBA.

This post is more about giving credit to Lance Stephenson for his awesome all-around game.  He leads the Pacers in assists by nearly one hundred and he has more total boards than Paul George and David West.

Also, “Born Ready” is tied with Kevin Durant with 15 double-doubles this season.
