Try as he might, Lance Stephenson just can't seem to get into the head of LeBron James.
The former star is back with the Indiana Pacers and up to some of new old tricks.
He's found himself once again tangled up with James in the Eastern Conference playoffs, a unenviable position for any player.
You have to credit Lance for creativity, though, as he's not going down without a fight.
We all rememer the meme from back in the 2014 playoffs when Lance blew in LeBron's ear, back when James was a member of the Miami Heat.
James and the Heat won that series, which was the Eastern Conference Finals, in six games, before losing in five games to the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals.
Now, Stephenson is back with the Pacers after being picked up off the scrap heap late in the season.
The former LeBron nemesis is trying anything to get under James' skin.
In Thursday night's dramatic comeback victory against the Pacers, Lance went after James in the backcourt and tried to draw a foul. The results were less than successful.
That's just a legendary move by a legendary pest.
Needless to say, it did not work, nor did pretty much anything Indiana tried to do on Thursday night.
The Pacers led by 25 points at halftime, but the Cleveland Cavaliers still earned a 3-0 series lead with a 119-114 victory on the road.
James had 41 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists in the game, good for a triple-double.
In the game, LeBron passed Kobe Bryant and moved into third on the NBA's playoff scoring list. Bryant had 5,640 points. After Kobe, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is next with 5,762 points.
Then, Michael Jordan will be in his sights, as Jordan scored 5,987 in his career, with only 358 points separating LeBron and MJ.
Meanwhile, Stephenson is actually playing pretty well for the Pacers in his return to Indianapolis. In these playoffs, Lance is scoring 14.0 points, grabbing 5.0 rebounds and dishing out 2.7 assists.
Teammate Paul George calls Lance a leader for the Pacers. Indiana will need all of its leaders to play well to extend this series as long as possible.
He will continue to try to disrupt LeBron James throughout the rest of the series.
You can bet that Lance will try just about anything to get the job done.
He might even huff and puff and blow Cleveland's house down. Or fall with it to the floor.
