Why get in your opponents head, when you can get in their ear?

In Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals, Lance Stephenson (who’s always been a bit of an IRL Troll) walked up to his superstar opponent, LeBron James and in a quiet moment, gently blew in his ear. The utter ridiculousness of the whole thing caused even James to crack a smile.

Never content to let a glorious moment just float by, the internet cracked open their collective laptops and got to work, creating a series of delightfully fun memes that even the most casual NBA fan would love. As for the diehards, they know that the best ear-blowing happens out west, so we’ll wait to see what happens tonight.
