Lance Stephenson trying hard to get in Heat’s heads & huddles
Lance Stephenson is taking a page out of the Metta World Peace playbook, trying hard to get in the Miami Heat’s heads, huddles and hot fantasies — and maybe make some headlines and highlight shows, too.
On Wednesday night he took it a step further in Game 5, at one point blowing in LeBron’s ear — presumably to cool him off.
And you can’t argue with the results: James had the worst playoff game of his career, finishing with seven points on 2-of-10 shooting in the Indiana Pacers’ season-saving 93-90 win.
And Stephenson had more memes and ammo for the Internet.
After the game, James was asked if he’d ever thought of blowing in anyone’s ear as a defensive tactic.
"I blew in my wife’s ear before," James said while laughing along with Dwyane Wade. "That was definitely a defensive tactic."
Chris Bosh called Stephenson’s antics childlike.
Stephenson shrugged it off as "Just playing ball" and James did too.
“All the extra [stuff], whatever Lance wants to deal with, I don’t really care about that,” James said. “Lance is Lance. He’s going to do what he needs to do to help his team win."
