LeBron James and the Miami Heat are currently playing against the Indiana Pacers in the NBA playoffs. The winner will move on to the NBA Finals. And in Game 5 of the series last night, ESPN's cameras caught Pacers guard Lance Stephenson blowing in LeBron James' ear during a break in play in, I suppose, an attempt to distract him.
It isn't the first shenanigan that Stephenson has thrown LeBron's way during the series, though without much success; the Pacers won last night, but still trail the Heat three games to two in the best-of-seven series.
