Lance Stephenson takes flopping to a new level by slapping himself in the face
I bet you thought Lance would never be able to top his ear blowing on LeBron and do something even more over the top. But during the first quarter of last night’s matchup with the Warriors, the NBA’s best actor showed why he’s the Marlon Brando of the league with a method approach that would make Stanislavki proud.
LANCE STEPHENSON SLAPPED HIMSELF IN THE FACE TO GET A FOUL. I REPEAT. HE SLAPPED HIMSELF IN THE *#@^%$@! FACE! AND GOT THE FOUL!
A young DeNiro, Pacino and Vlade Divac would be so proud.
Unfortunately Lance and the Hornets were destroyed in the first half and trailed 67-43 at half-time before eventually losing by 25. Lance did score 16 on 7 of 10 shooting but didn’t do much else.
In honor of Lance’s method acting, here’s a clip of of Christian Bale from the Machinist. He dropped down to 121 pounds to play the role and then had to gain 60 pounds of muscle to play Batman just 6 weeks later.
