Just ruined him. Got in his head. Got in his way. Reduced LeBron James, greatest player of his generation, into a crying, whining puddle of goo – and a puddle of goo on the short end of a 97-95 score, the Indiana Pacers beating the Cleveland Cavaliers because Lance Stephenson ruined LeBron James.
LeBron might have been easy pickings. He has been blowing his cool a lot lately, on Thursday night getting into it with a Cavs assistant in a blowout loss to Toronto, and then on Friday angrily scolding Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson for all of Bankers Life Fieldhouse to see.
