Roy Hibbert took a painful shot to the groin tonight when his Indiana Pacers faced the Miami Heat. Shane Battier drove down the lane and went up to try and dunk over Hibbert. The two collided so Shane switched to try and make a lay-up while Hibbert fell to the ground in pain. As Shane went up he gave Roy a huge knee to the groin area at full speed.

The Indiana Pacers played a great game against the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. Heck, after Paul George made three free throws to give them the lead with 2.2 seconds left, it looked like they were even going to pull off the win. But luckily Miami had Pacers coach Frank Vogel give them an assist.
Vogel inexplicably pulled center Roy Hibbert out of the game...
The Pacers will lock horns with the Miami Heat for a chance to play for an NBA Title. All anyone has been talking about the past few days is this Roy Hibbert block on Carmelo Anthony from the Eastern Conference semi’s.
Of course now everyone wants to know if that block will prevent LeBron James from challenging Hibbert at the rim?
According to the New York Daily News, James...
The big question after last night’s thrilling Heat OT win is, of course, why Roy Hibbert was on the bench for the game’s final 2 defensive possessions. As seen above, ball go in without Hibbert, ball stay out with Hibbert. Pacers coach Frank Vogel said he’d have to look at the tape, but would most likely keep Roy in next time. Duh. Hindsight is 20/20, but this time it’s more...
Roy Hibbert hasn’t had the most fun of days after the Pacers took a brutal loss against the Heat in game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals last night.

Frank Vogel decided to leave Roy Hibbert on the bench in two key defensive plays late in the Indiana Pacers' overtime loss to the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Hibbert is one of the NBA's best rim protectors, but struggles to defend the perimeter. Vogel was concerned that guarding Chris Bosh on the perimeter would negate Hibbert's usefulness at...
The Indiana Pacers let the Miami Heat off the hook in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, and Pacers’ center Roy Hibbert is already complaining about foul play from one of the senior members of the Heat. Look, we are all for calling Shane Battier “Captain McMasterflop.” After all, Battier attended Flop U, and Coach K most likely shows highlights of Battier from his Blue...
Shane Battier has never been one of the most athletic players in the NBA, and at 34 years old he has had to find ever more creative ways to contend with the league’s big bodies and high fliers. His methods tend to attract attention for what his supporters would call “gamesmanship” and his detractors would just call “dirtiness.”
Pacers center Roy Hibbert prefers the latter...
Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert took to his Twitter account Wednesday night to defend himself against fans’ criticism. Then on Thursday he accused Heat forward Shane Battier of dirty play.
Tweet In the thrilling game one of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers, there was a play where Pacers center took a knee to the groin during a layup attempt by Shane Battier of the Heat. Here’s video of the play in question: As you can see in the video, [...]
It could have been the perfect matchup to cap an unforgettable game. LeBron James driving to the rim to face Roy Hibbert, one play to decide Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.
Alas, Hibbert was on the bench for the deciding moment.
And James made Miami's game-winner seem way too easy.
James blew past Paul George and made a layup as time expired, and the Heat found a...
