Roy Hibbert is coming off a season in which he became a first-time NBA All-Star, and helped lead the Indiana Pacers to the second round of the NBA Playoffs. He’s also a big factor in the Pacers winning back the Indiana fans.
He’s one of the more popular athletes in Indiana, and has improved each year with the Pacers. With so few quality centers in the NBA, there’s no way the Pacers can let the restricted free agent Hibbert walk.
Hibbert was on WNDE in Indianapolis with Query and Schultz today. When asked if he’d be back with the Pacers, the big man responded:

The Pacers have the...
Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough seems to have had a good time out at a bar recently where he was photographed looking drunk.
Here we have Pacers big man Tyler Hansbrough having himself an adult beverage in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. There is entirely nothing wrong with that at all, but typically you don’t drink your adult beverage out of a brown paper bag. Well, unless you’re a wine-o.
At any rate, Hansbrough looks to have enjoyed his adult beverage and by the time the night was over, it...
Our friends at Deadspin brought to light this afternoon that Indian Pacers goon Tyler Hansbrough had a solid weekend in Wrightsville Beach, N.C. The big news here is that Psycho T doesn’t mind to brown bag his 40 oz-ers when hanging with fellow whities. A little more digging into Hansbrough’s summer reveals that this guy has been slightly enjoying his free time. The Internet...
