Roy Hibbert Not Planning On Signing Extension By Wednesday

It has always paid to be tall. Take it from me, a guy who isn't. In today's NBA though, where players like Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon, and even a step down to the Brad Daugherty's of the world are long since retired, it really pays to be tall. Especially if you can couple even a little bit of skill with said height.  Indiana Pacers big man Roy Hibbert has always...

We've made no attempt to hide our respect and admiration for NBC's 'Parks and Recreation' here at Ball Don't Lie.

The fact...

When the Laker offense is beautiful

Pay special attention to the highlight above with about 2:36 left in the game. That's when Pacers David West and Paul George trap the most celebrated Laker, Kobe Bryant, against the left wing. Bryant finds his wide open teammate, Pau Gasol, in the corner, who draws yet another Pacer, Roy Hibbert, out of the lane. This is where the genius of the Lakers' roster is on full...
