Pacers sign Lance Stephenson to multi-year deal, just in time for NBA playoffs

Pacers sign Lance Stephenson to multi-year deal, just in time for NBA playoffs

The Indiana Pacers are bringing back a familiar face just in time for the playoffs and just in time for him to agitate the heck out of their opponents.

That would be Lance Stephenson, who famously blew in LeBron James' ear during a playoff game back in 2014. Stephenson is returning to the team he entered the league with back in 2010-11, according to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Since, Stephenson has played for five different teams in three years: the Hornets, Clippers, Grizzlies, Pelicans and Timberwolves. Minnesota was his last stop where he played just six games. The Pacers are his third team this season alone.

The 26-year-old guard now rejoins a struggling Pacers team that currently sits seventh in the Eastern Conference with six losses in their last 10 games. They have had major problems on the road this season and that does not bode well for the postseason. The signing is worth noting for Wizards fans, given the Pacers could match up with them in the first round of the playoffs.

Amazingly, Stephenson earned a three-year deal from Indiana, according to a report by Adam Zagoria. So, it appears Stephenson is back home and there to stay.

Let's take another look at his epic troll job of LeBron back in 2014:

Still weird.

Wizards' Bradley Beal shares disapproval with Giannis Antetokounmpo's headbutt of Moe Wagner

Wizards' Bradley Beal shares disapproval with Giannis Antetokounmpo's headbutt of Moe Wagner

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo's headbutt of Wizards forward Moe Wagner led to an ejection, but also an explosion of reactions on Twitter.

Among the voices on social media was Wizards star guard Bradley Beal, who is not with the team in Orlando as he recovers from an injury.

Beal initially reacted to the moment with some choice words, saying that the move by Antetokounmpo was unacceptable. He, however, used an acronym that features words that cannot be written in this story.

Then, Beal elaborated on his feeling with some emojis that can be decoded to "angry."

Clearly, the guard was not pleased with what transpired, which is understandable. Not only did Beal watch his teammate be on the receiving end of the headbutt, but the action by Antetokounmpo is something that put both of them in danger, as any trauma to the head can be dangerous.

Beal may not be in Orlando to share with Antetokounmpo how he feels up close and personal, but NBA players have shown time and time again that they have no problem trading blows through Twitter. That means this may not be the last statement on the altercation in the bubble.

During the Wizards matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night, a tension-filled moment between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Moe Wagner escalated to the point where Antetokounmpo headbutted Wagner, leading to an ejection.

A wild moment featuring one of the biggest names in the NBA, Twitter immediately erupted, with numerous different reactions and emotions being shared through social media.

Wizards star Bradley Beal chimed in, showing dissatisfaction with what transpired.

Others felt as if Antetokounmpo may have found himself in the wrong bubble.

Many saw the move and instantly saw its similarities to other infamous headbutts in the world of sports. Zinedine Zidane's 2006 World Cup fiasco that resulted in a red card was a popular choice, as was John Starks headbutting of Reggie Miller.
