Video: Lakers’ Lance Stephenson makes hilarious workout tape
Lance Stephenson is one of the most unpredictable players on the Los Angeles Lakers. Wait, scratch that. Stephenson is one of the most unpredictable players on any team in the NBA. Whether he’s on the court or off the court, it’s safe to expect the unexpected with Stephenson.
In his most recent shenanigan, Sir-Lance-A-Lot showed up to a Zumba class in a disguise. The hilarious surprise was met with some skepticism by the class, but they eventually buy into Lance’s teaching methods. His moves included the “hesi” and the “stepback” as Stephenson clearly leaned into his basketball experience.
The hilarious video from SLAM was billed as a fake infomercial that had the feel of an old school 80s or 90s commercial for a box set of Zumba dance classes.
Stephenson has had an up-and-down season for the Lakers so far this year. He’s a guy that can bring energy and defense off the bench, but he can be inconsistent. His 17 points on Thursday night against the Houston Rockets was the first time he’s scored in double figures for the first time since Nov. 25.
Stephenson doesn’t need to be a major contributor for the Lakers, but it’s always an added boost when he plays well. It helps alleviate some of the pressure on LeBron James and provides a spark for the bench.
Stephenson’s unpredictable nature makes him one of the more exciting players in the league. The Lakers would love to see more consistency from him.
