Proof Lance Stephenson is really in LeBron James' head

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

To understand Lance Stephenson's war of minds with LeBron James, we need to go deeper.

1. Lance Stephenson says LeBron James' trash talk is a sign of weakness, and an indicator that he is in LeBron's head.

2. LeBron James scores 32 points, has 10 rebounds and five assists, perhaps proving that talking trash about LeBron James was not a wise idea.

3. Lance Stephenson does not apologize.

4. In 1960, late French singer Edith Piaf records one of her most famous songs, "Non, je ne regrette rien," which translates to "No, I don't regret anything."

5. In 2010 Piaf's song is featured in the movie Inception. In the film, the song is used as a cue for thieves attempting to steal ideas from dreaming people. But the film mentions repeatedly that people perceive time differently in dreams, so the high-pitched strings of Piaf's song are deep, ominous blasts to the dreaming characters. Film scorer Hans Zimmer slowed down Piaf's song to create the signature BRAHM BRAHHHHHM that became associated with the widely popular film.

6. By explaining his failed trash talk by quoting Piaf's song featured in a movie about dream robbery, Lance Stephenson acknowledges that he is not merely in LeBron James' head in the typical sense we've casually thrown around in sports commentary for years.

LANCE STEPHENSON IS SO DEEP INSIDE LEBRON JAMES' HEAD, HE IS INCEPTING HIM.

Don't get comfy with your 3-1 lead and preternatural basketball talent, LeBron. Lance Stephenson is deeper in your head than you could possibly imagine.
