Stephenson was called for a technical foul for taunting after making a 3-pointer using 3:18 remaining from the LosAngeles Lakers‘ match against the Charlotte Hornets to place the Lakers up by 32 points enroute to their eventual 128-100 success. He also got the whistle blown on him in making his way down the court strumming an aviation at the direction of Hornets rookie Miles Bridges.
This had been the second technical foul of this summer season for Stephenson, that one for massaging in against his former team, coming; he played with the Hornets throughout the 2014 15 season.
Stephenson did a talking with his feet, too, wearing an all-white couple of the Air Jordan XVIs while Hornets owner jordan observed on from a suite at the Spectrum Center.
Earlier in this season, Stephenson was asked concerning the origin of his aviation party.
“I had been just in clinic messing around,” he said. “Just came out of left field. Stuck with it”
