As expected, the NBA did not look too kindly upon Roy Hibbert’s salty, homophobic comments to the press after the Pacers’ Game 6 triumph. The big fella is now $75K lighter in the wallet, per the press release: “Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert has been fined $75,000 by the NBA for using inappropriate and vulgar language during postgame interviews following the Pacers’ 91-77 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. ‘While Roy has issued an apology, which is no doubt sincere, a fine is necessary to reinforce that such offensive comments will not be tolerated by the NBA,’ said NBA Commissioner David Stern.”
