Heading into Sunday’s Game 4 showdown between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers, one of the stupider storylines making its way around the newswires was about the beef between LeBron James and Lance Stephenson. If you recall, back during Game 3, Stephenson made a choking motion while James bricked some free throws. Understandably, folks from South Beach weren’t too keen on some benchwarmer taunting their superstar. And that’s presumably why the Heat’s resident Old Guy, Juwan Howard, decided to take matters into his own hands during the pre-Game 4 shootaround.
Here is how it went down:
Pretty standard basketball confrontation. Everyone puffs out their chest, nobody actually does anything. We’ll chalk this one up to Howard going senile.
Best tweet on the topic comes from Twitter must-follow @DrewUnga:
Juwan dated Stephenson's grandma in high school. The beef goes way back.
