In addition to his ear-blowing and huddle-joining antics, Lance Stephenson also pulled a hilariously awful attempt to draw a foul last night in Game 5. He dove hard, and he now owes Adam Silver’s office $10,000. He was fined $5,000 earlier in the series for a similarly terrible acting job, and the fine doubles on the second offense.
As you can see here, Roy Hibbert also got in on the act by pretending to be shoved while going for a rebound. It’s his first offense this postseason (and perhaps ever?), so he only has to pony up $5,000.
This wasn’t exactly De Niro and Pacino in their primes.
