It sure looked like Jason Terry offered up a tribute to one of the oldest memes of the NBA’s internet era by blowing in Lance Stephenson’s ear during Monday’s game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Indiana Pacers. Terry had stuck a three-pointer in Stephenson’s face, prompting the zany celebration.
You can see it here:
The 40-year-old Terry has reinvented himself as a bit role player over the past five years, but this fun move will definitely get people to notice him once again. Obviously, the infamous Stephenson play that Terry was probably mimicking is this one, where Stephenson blew in LeBron James’ ear for no real reason at all during the Eastern Conference playoffs.
I fully support both of these things, and Terry instantly became the coolest 40-year-old in the league. (They’re all super cool, though. Don’t make me choose a favorite between my dads.)
Despite Terry’s efforts, Indiana still won the game on Monday 92-89.
