Roy Hibbert Says He’ll Pay Lance Stephenson’s $35k Fine for Role in Fight


Tuesday night’s brouhaha between the Indiana Pacers and Golden State Warriors cost players games and money. The only person who might come out on top, is Lance Stephenson, since teammate Roy Hibbert has offered to pick up the tab on his $35,000 fine. Per the AP and Indy Star: “Pacers center Roy Hibbert and Warriors forward David Lee have each been suspended a game without pay for starting an altercation during their game that drifted into the courtside seats. [...] The NBA said Wednesday that the Warriors’ Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and the Pacers’ Lance Stephenson were fined $35,000 each for escalating the fight. [...] Draymond Green started in place of Lee, who lost more than $115,800. Hibbert will sit out Thursday at home against the Clippers. He will forfeit more than $124,000. [...] Hibbert said that he plans to pay Stephenson’s fine for ‘being a good teammate and having his back.’ [...] Hibbert apologized for his actions after practice Wednesday. ‘My mom was a little upset,’ Hibbert said. ‘She said I should have walked away. It’s unfortunate it happened. I watched the video and I saw there was a little kid that ran up out of his seat when all that happened. I apologize to the fans that were sitting courtside. We’re a team that loves the fans and we don’t want to scare them away.’”

    That Kid he was referring to was Steph Curry. He wasnt running away though, you threw him away.

    I find it disappointing that Lance Stepenson’s fine was the headline of this story instead of mentioning about how it upset his mother. I read the news from some other place and just clicked to read this just to see if it was mentioned.

    Good point. Mom’s always right. Still, it’s cool to see Hibbert taking responsibility for this teammate’s fine.

  • Lil_Stratboy

    at least he’s doing something good with the money he’s being overpaid with.

  • Lloyd

    You win.

    Hibbert seems alright in my books. Remember when he paid his teammates to play d? Regardless, must be nice to make enough money to voluntarily pay a $35,000 fee on top of your $125 k. *sigh*

    Is this “unprecedented” in sports history?

    i can’t remember ever hearing of something like this before…

  • bike

    Always wondered how they determine the amount of the fine for this stuff.

    AGREED, NBA IS SOFT

  • Max

    Might as well, all that money has to go somewhere.

  • Max

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH CANADIAN KEYBOARDS!?

  • Max

    With this.

  • RayJr

    Fines are given to charity right? How about they can also be split and given away in a drawing to help pay for someone’s college education?…like mine. Just a thought.

    Apart from when he said that his momma was upset, Big Roy is definitely starting to throw weight around like Suge Knight. Lance better be careful…that’s how you get owned…soon, Roy will have him dropping off dubious packages on 38th and Emerson, talking about “DONT PULL OVER FOR NO ONE!!!”

  • RKJ92

    MAX YOUR CANADIAN TOO!? SWEET

  • Max

    NO I’M NOT, JUST TRYING TO TALK CANADIAN LOL.

    There’s probably a fine for it. Roy will get hit another 35k and Lance will try to cover it and…just goes on and on.

  • Mars

    Hibbert, since we’re in a recession, and you would like to throw money away….i was wondering if i could borrow $20 g’s . Just till i can get back on my feet. I got your back.
