With free agency coming to a grinding halt until LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony decide where they will be playing next season, things are probably pretty boring for the second tier of free agents who are stuck in a waiting pattern.

Apparently Lance Stephenson has decided to pass his time by watching Lance Stephenson highlight mixes on Youtube and @’ing Lance Stephenson on Twitter to remind him that he is a “straight beast.”

There are a lot of questions that come from this simple tweet. How many Lance Stephenson mixtapes has Lance Stephenson watched? Was this the best one that he found or just the longest? What is his favorite play in the mixtape? Can Lance Stephenson make his own mixtapes?

Personally my favorite moment of the entire mixtape was the play around the 40 second mark against the Pistons when Lance dribbles basically in circles for 12 of the 14 seconds left on the shot clock before making a layup to pad the Pacer’s lead.

For Stephenson things should get busier going forward in the next few days as the LeBron sweepstakes comes to a close and teams turn their attention to guys like Stephenson, Luol Deng and Trevor Ariza. In the meantime Lance clearly is keeping himself busy to watching his highlights and reminding himself just how much of a straight beast is.
