SHOCKER: Someone Tried To Punch Roy Hibbert Last Night
Los Angeles Lakers center and former Defensive Player of the Year Roy Hibbert isn't the most lovable guy in the NBA, that much is clear (guys who make scoring extra hard rarely are). But there's something about his apparent prickly persona that rubs people in the wrongest of ways. Maybe it's that smug look on his face. Maybe it's just because he's so goddamn tall. Maybe it's those frustratingly effective screens he sets. While some players manage to bother would-be scorers without making them want to drop the gloves in the middle of televised basketball, whatever it is Hibbert does seems to the elicit the opposite reaction.
Enter Utah power forward Trevor Booker, who swung on Hibbert in the third quarter of a preseason game Tuesday night. Do you realize how hard it is to get an NBA player with a secure roster spot to give half a shit about anything before December, let alone a meaningless preseason game? Hibbert must be working with some military-grade trolling...
that slap was hilarious
