Roy Hibbert was ejected following a fight between the Golden State Warriors and Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, and his comments about Steph Curry after the game were pretty funny. Hibbert and David Lee were fighting for position for a rebound in the fourth quarter. Lee shoved Hibbert, Hibbert shoved back, and the two bumped chests. That’s when Curry entered the picture, trying to pull Hibbert away from Lee. Hibbert then tossed Curry aside, and tossed him aside again after Curry came back at him. “I saw some light skinned guy coming at me. I didn’t know if it was Curry or Klay Thompson,” Hibbert said after the game, via The Indianapolis Star. After being told it was Curry who came after him, Hibbert said that the guard shouldn’t have gotten involved. “Really, it was between me and David Lee. I don’t know why the other guy (Curry) came at me,” said Hibbert. “Seriously, I didn’t even feel him. He just ran on me and … I dunno. It’s between me and David Lee and he wants to get involved. I’m the type of person I don’t want to start anything with somebody that’s smaller than me. If I have somebody my size I’ll take it out like me. But I don’t take pride in tossing a little guy to the side.” Hibbert knows the league will review the play. He emphasized that the incident was out of character for him. “I’m a mellow guy,” Hibbert said, according to The Star. “I don’t talk trash, I just go out and play tough. I’m not a thug, just a laid-back, gentle guy.” Hibbert was the only one ejected, though Lee, David West, Thompson, and Curry received technical fouls. The Pacers won the game 108-97, getting 13 points, nine rebounds, and five blocks from Hibbert before his ejection. Curry had 38 points in the loss, and probably one bruised ego after getting tossed aside.
