It was a hilarious moment that will be a meme on #NBATwitter for a very long time. During the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals, the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat were in a competitive series and Lance Stephenson was doing a fairly strong job of playing defense against LeBron James. Stephenson was doing all he could to get James mad that at one point he even blew in his ear.
Lance Stephenson comments on the notorious LeBron ‘ear-blow’ and their ongoing beef – right up until he joined up with LeBron at the Lakers this summer. Download the app today for the full Lance Stephenson story!
“I was really trying to get him mad” Stephenson told The Score. “Really trying to win the game, trying to get him unfocused. I would try anything.”
As was the case against most Eastern Conference teams, LeBron ended up getting the best of Stephenson and the Pacers that season.
Don’t expect Lance to try anything that silly to LeBron this time around considering they’ll be teammates on the Los Angeles Lakers this year.
