Something tells me that Roy Hibbert may not make the best paintball player. I don’t know, maybe it’s the 7’2, 280 pound frame of his that could potentially stick out while darting back and forth between the obstacles. Hibbert is having a ton of fun with Google Glass, which allows the viewer to witness what is happening from the athlete’s point of view. The former Georgetown center has his own Youtube channel that has clips of other things Hibbert has done while using Google Glass. Check it out: The post WATCH: Roy Hibbert plays paintball while wearing Google Glass appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
BEST OF MAXIM

Paul George is a very rich man, and if everything goes the way he and the Pacers anticipate, he could eventually be much, much richer.

Last week Danny Granger said that his tentative return date to full activities would be October 5th the extent of his sixth-month recovery prognosis from his knee injury. At Media Day Friday Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel said that Granger will be back earlier than that though. As in immediately.
The other big question at Media Day for Indiana was about Granger and his minutes...

Current Indiana Pacers president and former NBA legend, Larry Bird, believes that the time is now for the Pacers to win it all. The Pacers brought their physical defensive play as far as the eastern conference finals last season, where they came up just short of an NBA Finals appearance, losing to the Miami Heat in a tough 7-game series.
The Pacers deserve praise for their hard-fought...
The Indiana Pacers made Paul George’s 5-year, $90 million contract extension official at a press conference Wednesday where the All-Star made it clear that he feels more at home in Indiana than he’s felt anywhere in his entire life, “I was supposed to have a poker face throughout this situation, but my heart was really here, and I couldn’t see myself going anywhere else...
Everybody felt good for Paul George on Wednesday.
After George inked a multi-year pact with the Pacers, he received congratulations from around the NBA — including from rivals within his own conference.

Unlike another All-Time great (Michale Jordan), Larry Bird is actually pretty good at his job. Bird wasn't a bad coach either when he ran the sidelines from 1998-2000 with the Pacers. It's never easy cheering for another team. But if you have to, why not a team ran by former Celtics great Larry Bird? It doesn't hurt either that the Pacers could...
Rush, by Ron Howard, was released in theaters in North America this weekend and has been met with very positive reviews in general. The movie was made on an indie budget of approximately $38 million and shot in Europe. It is centered on the real-life rivalry between James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) in 1976.
