ESPN's Rachel Nichols shared this pic with her Twitter followers of what Roy was thinking of wearing to the podium after leading the Pacers to a 81-72 win over the New York Knicks. NBA fashion game - Pacers Roy Hibbert and the monocle he brought to the podium. #UppingTheAnte @hoya2apacer twitter.com/Rachel__Nichol… — Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) May 12, 2013 Common sense prevailed and Hibbert went without the Colonel Klink look, but he did provide the press corp with a little humor at the start of his time at the podium by talking about it and why he almost wore it.

Roy Hibbert has his moment

When the Portland Trail Blazers offered Roy Hibbert a max $58.4 million, four-year deal it seemed like it was asking a lot from a one-time All Star who had a strong start to the shortened 2012 season, but struggled to the end. Hibbert was improving and had become a good player, but perhaps not someone you throw a max contract at and build a team around. There were concerns when...

Nate Robinson with the "Not In My House" Block of the Night on LeBron James

Lebron James, king of the flop

Bulls' Mohammed tossed for shoving James to ground

Chicago Bulls center Nazr Mohammed was ejected from Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Miami Heat on Friday night after shoving LeBron James to the court.

Nate Robinson blocks LeBron James layup

Nazr Mohammed gets ejected after shoving LeBron James in Bulls/Heat game 3
