Oh, man. David Stern is going to have a field day with Roy Hibbert. Following the Indiana Pacers' victory over the Miami Heat to force a Game 7, Hibbert utilized his post-game press conference to criticize the media, referring to them as "motherf***ers", for not paying closer attention to the Pacers throughout the season and as a result, having him finish tenth in 2013 Defensive Player of the Year voting. But Hibbert wasn't done there. Later on, he touched on how LeBron James was "stretching me out so much" on the defensive end and then finished it off with "no homo."
Hibbert will assuredly receive a hefty fine for his comments, but for someone getting nearly $14.3 million this season, any financial punishment in the five or even six-figure range is a drop in the bucket for him. And to make matters worse, dude laughed after both remarks and even said that he doesn't care about getting fined. So, how funny would it be if Stern suspended Hibbert for Game 7 over conduct detrimental to the team and league? Bet there's nothing funny about that, right?
Maybe, after a while, Hibbert came to his senses. But c'mon, just sending a tweet to Jason Collins isn't gonna put you in a good light anytime soon, fam.
