Basketball players have always had little tricks to try to distract opposing players. During last season’s playoffs, Lance Stephenson went viral after blowing in LeBron’s ear. On Saturday night between the Nets and Pacers, Kevin Durant gave a moment of deja vu by blowing in David West’s ear.
“I didn’t like that. I didn’t like it,” West said. “I just know it was too close and I didn’t like it. It was just too much. I don’t really play them games. We’re out there to play basketball, so let’s play basketball.
“Everybody was kinda looking at me trying to figure out what made me push him or whatever, but he blew in my face, an aggressive blow at that. I think Lance’s was more sensual, you know? That was an aggressive one.”
