Video: Lance Stephenson Flashes ‘Choke’ Sign to LeBron James

The Pacers swingman taunts LBJ.

Taking a page out of former Pacers star Reggie Miller’s trash-talking playbook, Lance Stephenson pulled out the ol’ choking sign after LeBron James bricked a free throw last night. (Unlike Miller, though, Stephenson was only on the floor for all of one minute during the Game 3 win.)

    How homie gone clown when his main thang is to warm that bench…

    I thought I was the only one who noticed this. Funny how Lance doesn’t even play long enough to take free throws.

  • crooklyn

    Lance needs to sit his a** down. He hasn’t stopped choking since he put on a pacer uni, Dude aint even take off his warm ups yet, couldn’t even get in on that garbage time last night

  • LA Huey

    It’s an NBA requirement for a Stephenson to try to annoy the ish out of LeBron.

  • T-Money

    wow, lance. you’re about to play in pr or korea… chill.

  • 130623

    Heat will win this series and lance will look even more of a fat idiot

  • Mike Mihalow

    yet nobody’s denied LeBron choked lol
    This series is getting pretty intense.

    I do think Lance has a place in the NBA , just not with the Pacers… I think that he could be just as good as Tyreke is

  • IamYOU

    Lance Stephenson Sit yo ass down and KEEP THE BENCH WARM!

  • Riggs

    haha @ LA HUEY

  • http://www.slamonline.com spit hot fiyah

    why not contribute in any way u can, do u lance, as long as u r in the league

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    I think he warning his girlfriend to stop cheering for LeBron or she would get what the last one got.

    So a cat that can’t even sniff the court can be as good as a cat that put up 20/5/5 as a rook? Oh lawd….

    I just watched this several times, and to me, it doesn’t seem like this gesture was directed towards anybody else. I’m not inside of Lance’s head, but I think there’s a decent chance that Lance was just chilling with his arms around his neck. He gets so hyped on the bench, supports his teammates and is always engaged, so much that I honestly don’t even think Lance realized what he was doing

  • LP

    FYI, Look at that FLOP job by LeBron when WEST elbows him…thats crazy…thats called acting, be a man if somebody elbows you…im just saying….i Love how Granger isn’t taking any S*** from Lebron.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Royal

    IDK tyreke had so much freedom his rookie year , whereas Lance was not really given a chance …..they are very similar players that were put in very different situations …in my opinion

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    I understand where you’re coming from with unlimited freedom playing a role in Reke’s rookie campaign but he’s on a whole another level skill-wise and athletically compared to Lance.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Royal

    And I know Lance made alot of mistakes ( beating up a girl and other issues) but as basketball players I think they have (or had) the same potential

  • MeloMan15

    didn’t really seem like he directed it at lebron to be honest

  • http://www.slamonline.com Royal

    I think Tyreke’s skill level is slightly overrated… the kid has NO left and while his jumper has improved it still needs lots of work..He had a great rookie season but now that teams have figured out his game he has struggled a bit… Lance is no where near the finisher as Reke but aside from that I don’t see a major difference in their games skill wise…and while Reke is more athletic than Lance, I don’t think the gap between then is that large

  • KrispyKreme

    he just need a chance

  • http://juan.garcia@computershare.com PutUrMomma2Wrk

    Lance sees what everybody else sees… if it walks like a duck…talks..

  • patrick

    I didn’t see it.. what time mark was is at?

  • Charlie Villenueva

    Allen P ftw!

  • R32

    Miami needs to step UP. LBJ and Wade need to be in attack mode from now on. Now is not the time to defer.

  • FnF

    @Royal, Lance never beat up his girlfriend. She fell down the steps due to an untimely misjudgement of distance and Lance just happened to be in the vicinity. At least that is what the police report says. You can’t just assume he beat her up immediately after finding out she was carrying his child.———- Breaking News… David West provided fists of encouragment to Born Ready to entice him to act like a professional. Shares hospital room with Moondog and will not be attending tomorrow nights game.

    @patrick, watch from the 0:24 mark on. It looks to be directed at LeBron is you see where Lance is facing and the other angle where LeBron is talking to the refs. Either way, that was a b1tch azz flop by LBJ. The flopping epidemic is real.

  • Tempest

    lebron flopped again

  • t-sizzle

    FnF: The girlfriend recanted her story that he beat her after she reported it to the police. That doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. This kid has been assaulting girls since high school. Plus, the neighbors heard a confrontation. It’s not just some coincidence. On another note, JTaylor’s mom called. She really thinks I’m giving her back those panties she left at my crib smh.


    a dude who logged in 6 min in 10 games shouldn’t make any type of statements(signs or verbal). he is a call away from taking his talents to the dleague.

  • t-sizzle

    R We sure he’s not related 2 Deshawn Stephenson?

  • Top$helf

    Lay off of lance fans do and say crazy things at basketball games especially when they’re sitting courtside cause he’s obviously not a player lol I didn’t know he was still in the league smh Born Ready my @$$

  • t-sizzle

    Born Ready to do time. That’s more imminent than starting a game for his crazy azz.

    Born Ready…. To keep the pine warm.

  • Dennis

  • Dennis

    The way things look the Pacers are gearing up for another free for all, with that kind of behavior. Granger and crew

  • feez_22

    If i’m not mistaken… didn’t lance choke out his pregnant girlfriend? or did he throw her down the stairs?

  • Lower East Scribe

    He choked out a girl while he was at Lincoln. He threw his girlfriend down the stairs. Separate incidents.

  • DreDay

    This Joker needs to have a seat. The last thing he needs to be doing is making ANY kind of gesture that could be considered a threat. I mean he does put his hands on Woman. BLOKE
