Lance Stephenson doesn't look like a dude who we would want to mess with. If you want to see why, just take a look at the ice grill he gave Dwyane Wade earlier this month. Born Ready does not look like he plays games—on or off the court.
Apparently, Evan Turner isn't scared of Stephenson, though. Because according to a new Yahoo! Sports report, Stephenson and Turner knuckled up during a Pacers practice last Friday afternoon, one day before the start of the 2014 NBA Playoffs. And while it doesn't sound like Turner was victorious during the reported fistfight—the report describes how "a cursing, cut Evan Turner" had to be dragged off the court at Bankers Life Fieldhouse—we're still impressed by Turner agreeing to a fight with Stephenson in the first place. No shots (well, okay, some shots!) but Turner doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would throw down, let alone throw down with Lance Stephenson.
For what it's worth, Turner denied that a fight took place and said that "nothing happened" when he was asked about the alleged incident last night. But Yahoo! Sports confirmed that the fight happened with several people who witnessed it and reported that the fight "had been weeks in the making and that reflected in the ferocity of the encounter."
So who's got video? Anyone? We would love nothing more than to watch Stephenson and Turner go at it.
