PLAYERS: Roy Hibbert
TEAMS: Indiana Pacers

But this was not a normal chug — Hibbert impressively took down a 20-ounce Gatorade in under six seconds: Of course, that kick-started the #RoyHibbertChallenge on Twitter, where people try to replicate the feat and post Vines to prove it. And it was only a matter of time before some college athletes decided that they could prove themselves — it happened to be a few pitchers from Vanderbilt that went for the challenge. #RoyHibbertChallenge @vandybaseball pitchers edition @hoya2apacer — vucommodores (@vucommodores) June 7, 2013 None of the three can match Hibbert’s pace, but they did give it a good effort.

Video of the Week: #RoyHibbertChallenge

While watching game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, I think we all started getting sidetracked from the blowout and started watching the other random things going on in the game.

Yet, the most talked...

'Melo buys art — then Hibbert seves it

Free from Hibbert's shadow, the Heat unleashed

For six games in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Indiana Pacers made the Miami Heat—defending champions and winners of 27 consecutive victories in the regular season—appear oddly vulnerable, before the Heat reminded all of the advantages of having home court advantage and the game’s best player in Game 7.   Still, the manner in which the Pacers dragged the Heat...
