After Roy Hibbert‘s comments about some selfish dudes, following Indiana’s loss in Washington this past Friday, the roiling animosity in the Pacers’ locker-room was on more visceral display during San Antonio’s 103-77 win in Indiana yesterday. Pacers teammates Lance Stephenson and George Hill had to be physically separated after a verbal altercation during a second half timeout yesterday. Ruh roh. Read More »

The Pacers aren’t destroying their opponents on the way to the playoffs and the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference the way the current No. 1 seed in the Western Conference — the Spurs — has been doing recently. Indiana is limping towards the finish and only lead the Heat by a single game with a little over two weeks to go. In fact, center Roy Hibbert said, “there are some selfish dudes in here,” after the Pacers got beat in Washington last Friday night. Read More »

The Pacers-Heat game last night was appropriately referred to as a blood bath by most media members. It wasn’t just Lance Stephenson and Dwyane Wade that got into it, either. LeBron James was whistled for a flagrant foul 1 after his elbow knocked Roy Hibbert woozy during a drive in the fourth quarter. LeBron claimed he “must be a kung-fu master” if he did so intentionally. Read More »

Pacers Don’t Look Like NBA Finals Contenders Anymore

It’s March, otherwise known as the time where NBA teams are shortening and finalizing their rotations for the postseason and beginning to play with the fervor and intensity that precedes the playoffs. It’s not exactly the right time to hold players-only meetings. It may be necessary at the time, but it’s not something you want to go through when there’s less than two months until the playoffs begin. Read More »

The NBA is getting more guard-oriented these days, but besides Miami all the title-contending teams have a big man to protect the rim. Nobody does it better than 7-2, 260-pound Pacers center Roy Hibbert. He got jacked over the summer, too, working out with Tim Duncan in San Antonio and making everyone else look tiny in comparison. But Hibbert’s new bed actually makes him look tiny. Read More »

The Pacers now sport a triumvirate of 7-footers after they signed Andrew Bynum. They already had backup Ian Mahinmi and starter, Roy Hibbert, but the two offer distinctive responses to Lance Stephenson‘s post-game tomfoolery. After Indy’s comfortable 118-98 Tuesday night win over the visiting Lakers, Stephenson had some videobomb fun at Mahinmi’s expense, pouring a bottle of water on his head as he attempted to conduct a court-side interview. It wasn’t the first time Stephenson has tried this videobomb tactic, but the results were better than his first attempt. Read More »

The Pacers, the best team in the East, rolled into Minnesota on Wednesday night, but it was the T’Wolves who started the game off with a bang. In the first quarter, Ronny Turiaf came out to set a screen for Ricky Rubio on the wing, and then rolled to the basket. The Pacers’ defense failed to cover Turiaf as he cut to the rim, and Rubio was able to thread the pocket bounce pass to Turiaf for a powerful slam over Roy Hibbert — a pretty good protector of the rim.
