The history between new Los Angeles Lakers teammates LeBron James and Lance Stephenson is already known to the masses.

That’s why it was so surprising that Stephenson decided to sign with the Lakers after LeBron shocked the NBA world by settling on Hollywood.

In just their second game together, we’re starting to realize that all ill-will might not be gone. Check out Stephenson leaving James hanging after a timeout during Tuesday’s game between the Lakers and Denver Nuggets.

That’s all sorts of amazing. Don’t think for one second that Stephenson didn’t see James there. You can’t avoid the King on the bench. It’s impossible.

We’re now left wondering what the two might have in store as the season progresses. It should be a popcorn-worthy time.
