I was proud to be able to get this story. Lance Stephenson’s parents hadn’t felt comfortable with the Indianapolis media when the family arrived, believing some of the coverage had been unfair. I wasn’t covering the Pacers at the time, so they couldn’t blame me for it. I was fortunate to hit them up when Lance was playing well. I found them in the family lounge at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, and they agreed to meet with me. I got in a little trouble with front office folks for going in there, but it was worth the risk. Lance’s parents couldn’t have been nicer to me. Lance’s father later recorded a One on One episode with me, too. But we all know how this story turned out.
