Sometimes, NBA players just need to learn how to get out of the way and Hawks reserve forward Ivan Johnson will probably learn his lesson after he got posterized by Pacers center Roy Hibbert.
It happened in the first quarter of play in game two of the Pacers/Atlanta Hawks series and well, I’ll let the dunk do the rest of the talking:
