The Beermen, who have been equally impressive in Macau, will be fun to go against says Stephenson.
MACAU — East Asia Super League’s The Terrific 12 here is Lance Stephenson’s first tournament with China’s Liaoning Flying Leopards.
He’s played two games and he has two wins with his new team.
On Saturday, Stephenson has a meeting with the PBA’s best team as the Flying Leopards and the San Miguel Beermen duke it out in the semifinals of the Terrific 12.
The Beermen, who have been equally impressive here, will be fun to go against says Stephenson.
“It’s gonna be a lot of fun,” he said.
The Terrific 12 is pre-season for both Liaoning and San Miguel but that won’t stop the former one-time Laker from going all out.
Stephenson wants that Terrific 12 title before he starts the CBA season.
“Every game that I play, I approach it as a championship game,” Lance said.
“When I’m on the floor, I wanna win. My goal is to learn my teammates so we’d be ready for the competition,” Stephenson added.
