Death, taxes and a fight involving the Pacers. All those things are unstoppable forces of nature and the latter happened again tonight. What at first looked liked a minor dust up between Roy Hibbert and David Lee quickly escalated into a bench clearing shoving match that eventually got Hibbert tossed. Expect fines to be handed out tomorrow.
Well here’s something you won’t see everyday at the Circle Centre Mall in Indianapolis. After a Colts win over the Browns who failed to re-sign Lebron yet again. Gigantic Roy Hibbert and his Area 55 crew surprised fans / shoppers with well choreographed Gangnam Style flashmob. The big man has some moves.
Pacers teammates George Hill and Roy Hibbert have some fun with “Area 55″ contest winners by telling them they didn’t win. Area 55 was started by Hibbert as an effort to exchange loud cheering and fan loyalty, for free season tickets in his exclusive section to every game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Since we can’t see the heated rivalry between the Pacers and Knicks on the court in the post-season (I still blame Isaiah). Watching Roy Hibbert do battle against Jeremy Lin in a scavenger hunt challenge on Jimmy Kimmel for a season three copy of ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians” will have to do for now.
Dressed in a suit minus the blazer. Roy Hibbert throws one down at ESPN headquarters. Maybe the Pacers should let him play in a suit all the time. Am I right?
Pacers try teamwork in Granger’s absence
The Indiana Pacers knew they couldn’t have one player try to make up for the absence of Danny Granger. So instead, they used a team effort to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 107-96 to end a four-game losing streak Tuesday night at Conseco Fieldhouse.
“Danny is our leading scorer and our go-to guy, and definitely we look at him to do some scoring,” swingman Dahntay Jones said. “But it wasn’t on one person’s shoulders. It was a team effort, and the ball didn’t stop (moving), and we didn’t look for one guy to make plays for us. We made plays for everybody. That’s a team effort.”
Granger missed the game while serving a league-mandated one-game suspension for an altercation in Phoenix on Saturday.
