Well, at least we known Indiana Pacers swingman Lance Stephenson has a good sense of humor.
The veteran who made waves for not only his mouth but on-court antics during the Eastern Conference Finals between his Pacers and the Miami Heat decided to take in a local WNBA game on Saturday night. Alongside Chris Copeland and Rasual Butler, the three players were asked to participate in what looked to be a rather interesting halftime game of Simon Says with fans.
The idea itself was pretty solid as it would be rather entertaining to see three professional basketball players engaging in the popular child game but things quickly got better thanks to the host who decided he’d have a little fun with the Pacers guard.
Standing next to Stephenson was a young fan who was going through the motions of Simon Says, a game which you are to do as ‘Simon’ (the game host) tells you to do.
The fan could have been asked to put his hand on his head or maybe jump. He could have been asked to high five Stephenson or dribble a basketball around. But none of those were presented as options. What was presented? To blow in his ear.
Mimicking Stephenson, who earlier in the week set the internet ablaze when he blew in the ear of Miami Heat superstar LeBron James, the Pacers guard couldn’t stop laughing as the crowd errupted in cheers when the young fan blew into Stephenson’s ear.
Props to the kid for going through with it, but bigger daps to the dude on the mic who suggested it.
