Found June 05, 2013 on SILVERMAN: On Sports:
Tonight we got ready for Game 7 between the Heat and Pacers. Thanks to Tommy Shoegler of Indiana’s New Center for joining me to talk about the first six games and to break down the decisive game. We also took a step back to discuss the controversial last game in Indiana, Roy Hibbert’s dumb comments as well as the NBA’s suspension of Chris Andersen and the refs questionable calls. Bruce Udolf, SILVERMAN: On Sports’ legal analyst joined me to discuss the lawsuit filed against the NCAA on behalf of the Paternos and the Penn State faithful. It was an insightful talk about the law and the reach of the NCAA. We also spent some time discussing today’s Supreme Court ruling on DNA samples. Who said sports shows can’t be smart? This one is! Speaking of smart, our favorite game show segment was back. Adam Cristo called in from the American Airlines Arena in Miami to play Smart or Stupid. If you haven’t heard this special segment of the show, listen up. If you have, then you know it is a must hear. Among other topics discussed, I go off on the 2013 and 1962 Mets and soccer to Miami? Thanks David Beckham! Enjoy!

Video of the Week: #RoyHibbertChallenge

While watching game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, I think we all started getting sidetracked from the blowout and started watching the other random things going on in the game. I mean who didn’t notice the ridiculous outfit that Justin Beiber was wearing (WHY DO YOU NEED SUNGLASSES INDOORS?) or Flo Rida’s Jesus Piece, which was about as big as my head. Yet, the most talked...

Have You Taken the #RoyHibbertChallenge?

The season is over for the Indiana Pacers, but one player is not done having fun just yet. Big man Roy Hibbert has latched on to something that got kick started due to something he was seen doing on the bench during Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals Monday night--the man downed a bottle of Gatorade in about six seconds. In case you are wondering--that's incredibly fast...

Roy Hibbert chugs a Gatorade on the Pacers bench during game 7

One thing that I learned from the below video is that I never want to challenge Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert to a Gatorade drinking contest. The below video is from last night’s Pacers/Heat game 7 and check out Roy chuggin’ a Fruit Punch Gatorade on the Pacers bench in record time: That’s under 10 seconds for 20 oz Gatorade….that’s pretty impressive to say the least.

When Roy Hibbert chugs a Gatorade, he really chugs a Gatorade (video)

Just because the Indiana Pacers came up well short of upending the Miami Heat on Monday night during the teams’ Game 7 showdown does not mean that maximum effort was not exerted by the players. Take Roy Hibbert, for instance. During a break in the action late in the third quarter and the Heat well [...]The post When Roy Hibbert chugs a Gatorade, he really chugs a Gatorade (video...

Roy Hibbert fined $75,000 for post game comments

Roy Hibbert and the Indiana Pacers beat the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals Saturday night to force a Game 7. Hibbert during the post game conference with the media, dropped a gay slur when describing how the Heat were defending him and used profanity during the live conference. Hibbert did offer an apology and reached out to Jason Collins on Twitter, but that was not...

'Melo buys art — then Hibbert seves it

Carmelo Anthony sports himself as a bit of an art aficionado. So does Roy Hibbert. We're not sure they should be sharing a studio anytime soon, though. First, on Tuesday night, Anthony, whose well-documented playoff failures have become exacerbated in recent times by the success of LeBron James, recently spent another free June reportedly dropping $27,000 on ... According to...

Chris Bosh, Roy Hibbert put Game 6 misdeeds in rearview

MIAMI -- Two centers have had some troubling recent days for very different reasons.Indiana Pacers pivot Roy Hibbert has been dominant in the Eastern Conference finals against the Miami Heat, averaging 22.8 points and 10.8 rebounds. But Hibbert was fined 75,000 by the NBA on Sunday for uttering during a Saturday night press conference a gay slur and a profanity.Heat big man Chris...

Roy Hibbert & David West Leave Game 7 Without Shaking Hands With Heat

Roy Hibbert and David West were the only two Pacers to leave the court following the Game 7 loss to the Heat without exchanging words or hand shakes with any of Miami’s players. Poor sportsmanship or just an old-school move, refusing to give in to the rival opponent? According to the Indy Star: For West, it’s simple. He’s old school. He’s like the players in the 1980...

Getting Fined for Being Honest

In today’s politically correct world I get tired of athletes getting fined because they cursed at a press conference.  Usually when that happens there will be a media outlet somewhere (because there’s always one) that will have a headline such as ”Brian Behnke curses at press conference”.  And when I see a headline like that I think to myself one thing ’Whoop-dee...

West and Hibbert channel KG and Rondo; leave floor without shaking hands with Heat players

It's a Game 7 tradition in Miami. The opponent loses a hard fought seven game series to the Heat, and then bypasses the traditional post-series handshakes and hugs, instead heading straight to the locker room. Last season it was Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett, this year it was Roy Hibbert and David West. From the Indy Star. Roy Hibbert and David West – like Boston’s...

Indiana Pacers push Miami Heat to brink in Game 7

Having exceeded everyone’s expectations of them except their own, having pushed the defending NBA champion Miami Heat to the precipice, the Indiana Pacers find themselves with a remarkable opportunity tonight at American Airlines Arena. One win in Miami, in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, for a trip to the franchise’s first NBA Finals since 2000. It’s funny; the Pacers...

Heat blitz Pacers to reach 3rd straight Finals

Ever since the Heat came together on a stage in July 2010 with the pyrotechnics and bravado of a team that was pre-ordained to do great things, intense scrutiny has focused upon them. Every mistake, hiccup, shoulder bump, missed shot, injury, misspoken word, tweet, gesture and breath has been dissected and examined to an unreal and unfathomable level. The Pacers seemed to expose...
