Lance Stephenson enjoys playing mind games with the Miami Heat. In the end, these mind games may not make much of a difference in the seven-game series – the Heat are still very much in control of the Eastern Conference Finals – but Stephenson’s games sure are entertaining.
His new trick – blowing in LeBron James’ ear – is awesomely disturbing. LeBron shook his head in delayed-reaction disbelief when he realized what had happened Wednesday night.
You can tell what the Heat think of Stephenson simply on body language alone. Dwyane Wade and his half smirk after Stephenson’s taunting has been replayed over and over again and it’s clear that Miami thinks he’s loco. Loco enough to win? Probably not.
