After three years spent bouncing around the league between five different franchises, Lance Stephenson returned to the Pacers at the tail end of the 2016-2017 season. He seemed to have found a good fit in Indianapolis but then jetted off to the retooled Lakers for 2018-19. His attitude and energy are a little different, and so are his shoes: for a time, he was the only NBA player sponsored by street ball company And1 (a brand most notable for being on the feet of Vince Carter during his 2000 dunk championship), but later became a sneaker free agent where he primarily wore retro Jordans.
Stephenson then spent a chunk of time outside the league, before being recruited back by the Pacers during the 2021-22 season. He’s been rotating some old favorites on his feet: the AND1 Tai Chis and Tai Chi 3s on the court, once again!
