Opponent Caught on Camera Blowing Softly in LeBron James' Ear

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.
