The Miami Heat have had several opportunities over the last few weeks to lock up the first seed in the Eastern Conference. But they didn't get a damn.
In a memo issued to teams and officials, and made public online, the NBA is emphasizing verticality. Just in time for a likely Pacers/Heat Eastern Conference finals largely affected by verticality!
If he's not playing against the Miami Heat, odds are that Roy Hibbert isn't going to bother you too much on the offensive end of the court. On the season, the former Hoya is averaging 11.8 points on 9.6 field goal attempts per game.
People do the weirdest things to get a shout-out on Twitter. Some go down the "I love you, you're my favorite player" route, which may get you a retweet or follow depending on who that person is. Others go down the "Hey, you! Yeah, you. You're terrible. I know what I'm talking about" route.
NBA players are freaks of nature. Not only do they get paid millions of dollars to play basketball for a living, but more often that not, they are ridiculously good at other things.
CJ Watson got locked in a bathroom on the Pacers' bus ride to San Antonio and being the good teammate that he is, Roy Hibbert sat down and filmed the whole thing.
You know what upsets me? When people say that Roy Hibbert is overrated.
