Lance Stephenson was introduced as a new member of the Charlotte Hornets today, and at his press conference he addressed one of the most important moments of his career so far (like it or not): the ear-blowing incident.
“I feel like it overshadowed my play on the court,” Stephenson said. “I bring more to the table than just blowing in someone’s ear. I’m a great player.”
Fair enough. Crazy how one moment can overshadow a career year. If only everyone can just move on, like Lance has.
Oh, yeah, but ignore this video posted by the NBA 2K crew on Instagram yesterday:

Sure, he’s probably being a good sport about it. But don’t be surprised if people keep bringing it up if you keep playing along, buddy.
