During an Instagram Live session with Los Angeles Lakers guard Quinn Cook, newcomer Dion Waiters declared that he would beat Lance Stephenson in a one-on-one contest.

As a matter of fact, Waiters is so confident that he would win that he said he’d put $20,000 down on the game.


The 6-foot-3 shooting guard is a great individual player. When healthy and given the opportunity, Waiters has the ability to knock down game-winners and run an offense.

He has career averages of 13.2 points, 2.8 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game.

Stephenson, 29, is also known for his one-on-one play. The journeyman relishes scoring on defenders and conducting fancy dribbles.

While Stephenson played for the Lakers last season, he’s been unable to secure an NBA job this season. Throughout the course of his career, the guard has averages of 8.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists per tilt.

Waiters signed with the Lakers as a free agent just before the 2019-20 season was put on hold due to the novel coronavirus.
