   Sham's 2010 NBA Draft Night Recap, Part 2

Pick 40: Indiana's drafting of Lance Stephenson at 40 was missed due to a barrage of Michael Booblay music, presumbably at the behest of Stu Scott, who really does love saying the word Booblay. Lance Stephenson's best case scenario is a 42 year old Jason Richardson. Or a 14 year old Jason Richardson. His best career arc would be staying in the league for four years. He's another man who should not be here.

The Stephenson pick leads to this exchange:

Stu Scott: "Jay, his nickname is 'Born Ready.' Is he ready?"
Jay Bilas: "Well, he's got a lot of ability."

That's a no, then. Bilas then follows this up with the comment that Stephenson "needs to learn how to play", which, while true, is still a damning slant on any draftee. You can certainly continue to learn the game in the NBA, but you shouldn't have to learn all of it.
