Pacers' Hibbert may face fine for postgame rant
Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert may face disciplinary action from the NBA following his postgame press conference rant following his team's 91-77 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.
He ended a response to a question with "no homo" when asked about his defense on LeBron James and later cursed when asked why he finished so low in the Defensive Player of the Year award voting.
"Y'all mother(expletive) don't watch us play throughout the year, to tell you the truth. That's fine. I'm going to be real with you. And I don't care if I get fined. You know what, we play, we're not on TV all the time. Reporters are the ones that are voting. And it is what it is. If I don't make it, that's fine. I'm still going to do what I have to do," Hibbert said.
Hibbert had 24 points and 11 boards in Saturday's game.
The deciding contest of the series is Monday night in Miami.
