In the past, James and Stephenson engaged in many heated arguments on court that were mostly a result of their physical play.
Perhaps the most popular exchange was in 2014 when Stephenson annoyed James by blowing into the 4-time NBA MVP's ear.
James's Cavaliers and Stephenson's Pacers met in the 2018 NBA playoffs Eastern Conference quarterfinals where Cleveland won in 7 games.
The Indiana Pacers declined Stephenson's $4.4 million team option last June 25, 2018.– Rappler.com
