When he hasn’t been out at the E3 gaming convention giving people a taste of what the upcoming Call Of Duty: Ghosts will be like, Roy Hibbert has been obliterating his own challenge. In case you’re unaware, Hibbert was caught on camera during the Eastern Conference Finals absolutely chugging a bottle of Gatorade. Because of that, the #RoyHibbertChallenge took on a life of its own. Recently, he went on ESPN’s SportsNation to show off his skills again. This is impressive. Read More »
Roy Hibbert is a true gamer. During this year’s Eastern Conference Finals, Hibbert was Miami’s kryptonite, averaging over 22 points and 10 rebounds per game. While Miami would go on to beat Indiana in seven games, that wouldn’t be enough to stop Roy from evolving into a prime-time player. Read More »
Roy Hibbert‘s incredible block on Carmelo Anthony during the fourth quarter of Game 6 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals was probably the best defensive play of the playoffs. And while we’ve always known the big man had ridiculous swagger, this is just taking it to another level. Hibbert received these two frames from a friend and from the Pacers, and plans to hang them up in his man cave. Read More »
One of the best things about this year’s NBA Playoffs has been the handful of players who seemed to make the leap on the game’s biggest stage. Guys like Stephen Curry and Paul George – clearly already rising stars – took their games to a whole new level in these playoffs, setting the stage for their path to uber stardom in the very near future.
One guy who also showed flashes of greatness was Pacers center Roy Hibbert. There were times where he realized that he can completely dominate the paint against the NBA’s best. If that’s something he can do on a semi-consistent basis? He’ll be one of the top centers in the NBA. But he’s not there just yet. Read More »
Much like the NCAA Tournament serves as a barometer for incoming NBA Draft talent, the playoffs do the same for fantasy. Even in the postseason, player values are ever changing. Read on to see who has helped or hurt their value the most throughout this year’s NBA Playoffs. Read More »
Everything about this video is a win. First, you have Roy Hibbert getting legitimately pissed and ripping the media for how few Defensive Player of the Year votes he got. Then you have Ernie Johnson dropping “We’re all black friends” on the TNT set. Read More »
When we started this post, tonight’s Pacers/Heat game was still pretty close. Then LeBron James went full supernova on the Pacers and as we write this, they’re up 13 points.
The LeBron run doesn’t take away from the monster block Roy Hibbert put on Chris Bosh in the third quarter though. Check it out here: Read More »

It’s a monthly ritual. At some point, I’ll be on YouTube looking up old J-Will clips or replaying some sick Game Of Thrones scene and I’ll be recommended — you know… the list on the right side — to watch the top 100 Vince Carter dunk tape. Then for the next 10 minutes, you can’t talk to me. You can’t get my attention. You can’t get me to lift my eyes. Read More »
Since the second the final buzzer sounded on the Heat/Pacers game last night, debate has been raging over whether or not Frank Vogel cost his team the game by keeping Roy Hibbert on the bench on the final possession. Without Hibbert on the floor, LeBron James had a clear lane to the hoop and the win.
Could Roy have stopped LeBron’s drive (or at least fouled him)? Debatable. After the game, Roy swore he’d never sit idly by ever again. Read More »
Oh man … if the Indiana Pacers go on to lose this series against the Miami Heat, Pacers coach Frank Vogel is A) Going to be raked over the coals in the media for sitting Roy Hibbert on two crucial plays in overtime and B) Will forever be haunted by what could have been.
The criticism is fair. With his team up one with 2.2 seconds left in overtime, Vogel sat Hibbert – his best shot blocker and a presence that kept the Heat out of the lane for the majority of the game – in favor of a Tyler Hansbrough/Sam Young combo. His team paid dearly. Read More »
