Lance Stephenson was getting more and more amped as the Pacers began to extend their lead. Late in the third quarter of a 24-point game, he drove to the basket where he met Dwight Howard squarely at the rim. Howard stoned him like a brick wall, earning a jump-ball whistle, and stared down Born Ready while sharing a few choice words.
Stephenson, who was clearly in Howard’s head, gamely walked to the foul line for the tip. Howard proceeded to volleyball it out of bounds, despite having the clear size and athleticism advantage over the smaller shooting guard.
Lance, whose team was (once again) leading by 24, had the last laugh, and treated us all to this gem.
Feel free to add your favorite caption in the comments section or on twitter at @Twitch8p9s. And of course, this should most definitely become the next great internet meme of 2013-14.
My personal favorite so far is “I like turtles.”
