Soon-to-be Charlotte Hornet Lance Stephenson had a featured role in a skit at the ESPYs on Wednesday night, when host Drake poked fun at the time Stephenson famously blew in LeBron James’ ear during the playoffs.

ESPN came up with a “Lance Cam” graphic, similar to the “Kiss Cam” routine almost every NBA team does, where couples are urged to kiss during a timeout. First Drake blew in Stephenson’s ear, then Drake and Stephenson surrounded Indiana Pacers forward Paul George to blow in both his ears.

George was a good sport, considering Stephenson is leaving the Pacers for Eastern Conference rival Charlotte.
