That NBA Lottery Pick:
For those of you who thought that the Indiana Pacers/Miami Heat Eastern Conference Finals series would be physical, you wee 100% correct.

BEST OF MAXIM
Shane Battier is considered a “class act” and always talks to the media on game days. That is, until his super dirty play that Roy Hibbert called intentional yesterday. And now today, he’s staying quiet, skipping out on his interviews. Hey Shane, if you’re gonna hit someone in the balls, at least grab your own and talk about it afterwards.
What Hibbert Was Up to in OT
Roy Hibbert is one of the more hot and cold folks on Twitter these days, and if he isn’t Tweeting images of girls pooping on the streets, he is usually calling someone out, even fans. His latest victim is Shane Battier of the Miami Heat who he claims kneed him in the groin on purpose during Wednesday night’s game in Miami. You can see the video above and it does seem that...
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.

There is a cardinal rule among all men that simply states “the man region is off limits at all times.” An intentional shot to the family jewels is forbidden universally in the male species. Therefore, Roy Hibbert’s claim towards Shane Battier is as real as it gets.
Late in the first quarter, Battier was driving to the rim when his knee collided with Hibbert’s…persona...
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.

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...

Alas, Hibbert was on the bench for the deciding moment.
And James made Miami's game-winner seem way too easy.
