Roy Hibbert got into big trouble with the NBA for saying what was on his mind.  He was fined big time by the NBA for using homophobic slurs and cussing at reporters during an interview this week.   After a big Pacers win over the Miami Heat, Hibbert got irate toward reporters, angry at them for not giving him more votes for Defensive Player of the Year.   Then, he…

Read More

We always thought that Tim Duncan was a good guy, but maybe he’s not so good all the time.
