Lance Stephenson is possibly the most entertaining man in the NBA right now, even if he doesn't intend himself to be.
The Charlotte Hornets star gained recognition in the playoffs last year for blowing in the ear of LeBron James while he was at the Indiana Pacers. And now it looks like Lance has taken his comedy with him to North Carolina.
Stephenson and his Hornets faced off against the Golden State Warriors last night and Lance managed to draw a foul on Harrison Barnes by slapping himself in his own face. Yep, seriously.
This might be the greatest flop in history. You can forget the Triple-flop that occurred last week involving Kenneth Faried, DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay, this one by Stephenson beats it by an absolute mile.

I hope this doesn't become a thing. Flopping looks stupid enough as it is. We don't need to add hitting yourself in the face to the flailing arms routine so many in the league have perfected.
Despite being so utterly ridiculous, it's still good to have Lance Stephenson in the league. In the business-like world that professional sports has become, having a clown figure around is always good for funny moments.
