Head video games

From the ear blow to the choke signal to the signature flop-o-rama all of the technique to Sunday night time’s shove-turned-technical, it is transparent that Stephenson is in James’s head. Now not that it is putting off from James doing wonderful issues at the courtroom and profitable video games towards the Indiana Pacers, however when you get James to snicker, react, foul in retaliation, or to whinge to a ref, you’ve got earned one thing in your group. If James unnoticed him, it would be a distinct tale.

Stephenson has averaged 10.three issues in step with contest within the sequence towards the Cavs. Ultimate yr, whilst the Pacers were given swept, he threw up 16 a sport.
