Former NBA guard Lance Stephenson posted a hilarious selfie using one of the new Snapchat filters, and LeBron James and Dwyane Wade got a kick out of it.

This is exactly why NBA fans miss Lance Stephenson. The Brooklyn native, who played with LeBron James on the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018-19 and had countless battles with Dwyane Wade when he was on the Indiana Pacers, played in China this year after not receiving any NBA contract offers during the summer of 2019.
Stephenson, who has played for the Pacers, Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans, Minnesota Timberwolves and Lakers, has career NBA averages of 8.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 508 regular-season games.
Nicknamed “Born Ready,” Stephenson put up 7.2 points, 3.2 boards and 2.1 assists per game for the Lakers in 2018-19. He shot 42.6 percent from the field, 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 68.5 percent from the free throw line.
Stephenson wants to come back to the NBA, so it will be interesting to see if any teams show interest in him this offseason. It was so strange to see the 30-year-old play with James on the Lakers since the two always used to go at each other as rivals when LeBron was on the Heat with Wade.
However, the respect factor was always there and that’s why James and Stephenson got along on the Lakers in 2018-19.
