Wednesday night the Indiana Pacers avoided elimination from the Eastern Conference Playoffs when they walked out with a 93-90 win at home over the Miami Heat. While there were some memorable plays to come from that game, the most memorable one had absolutely nothing to do with the ball actually being in play at the time.
At one point in the contest, the Pacers’ Lance Stephenson took his care-free act very much further when he blew into the ear of LeBron James. Yes, in case you missed it. He blew into his ear like you do on a second or third date with your significant other.
Of course because it was in Indiana, it was all fun and games to the Pacers’ fans. Plus they walked away with the win.
But Heat fans, well, they were a bit displeased with the immature act, to say the least, and Friday night during Game 6 in the American Airlines Arena, they may be showing that displeasure toward Stephenson in the form of a t-shirt playing off the incident.
Earlier today, Miami radio host Paul Castronovo tweeted out this picture for fans going to the game tonight offering up a free t-shirt suggesting that Stephenson perform his blowing act somewhere other than in LeBron’s ear.

I’m not too sure if Heat security at the arena will let these go any further than the door, but then again, what a sight it would be to see over 10,000 people wearing this?
