Roy Hibbert is finally playing like he should have all season. And in a vital game 6 against the Heat at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indiana he asserted his dominance, helping the Pacers force a game 7 back in Miami.

After a lackluster regualr season, the 7’3″ big man out of Georgetown finally proved why he was an All Star selection last season and is widely regarded as one of the best centers in the league.

So during the post-game presser, you better believe that this man was feeling himself. He was as candid as ever with the playoff media reporters as he literally said any damn thing he wanted to.

Roy got things started easy by calling out the media and sports writers for all of the sudden being impressed by his heroics in the postseason. He reiterated the fact that they he’s been playing like this all season long but no one ever paid attention because he’s playing in a small market. Hibbert even went as far as to call them a certain choice word that is sure to get him fined.

While he really can’t say that, you have to love the guy for keeping it real. This even fired up Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley who were watching this from back in the studio. And like Shaq said, he loves this kind of attitude in a center and Roy needs to bring this into game 7. Hell he almost smacked Chuck because he was so fired up from this.

From there things took a turn for the worst as Hibbert used a certain choice word that is even worse than “motherf*cker.” While speaking about having teammate Paul George’s “back” while guarding LeBron James and even being “stretched out,” he decided to drop a nice little “no homo” line. In case you forgot, Roy Hibbert is not gay. So don’t try any funny sh*t.

This man is really going out of his way to make sure that David Stern fines his ass. I guess he uses this as his version of flopping in press conferences. And as you could imagine, since making this particular comment he has came out and apologized. Roy made this statement early Sunday morning.

“I am apologizing for insensitive remarks made during the postgame press conference after our victory over Miami Saturday night.”

“They were disrespectful and offensive and not a reflection of my personal views. I used a slang term that is not appropriate in any setting, private or public, and the language I used definitely has no place in a public forum, especially over live television.”

“I apologize to those who I have offended, to our fans and to the Pacers’ organization. I sincerely have deep regret over my choice of words last night.”

He even took it a step further, reaching out to openly gay NBA player Jason Collins. God knows what he wants to say. Maybe give him a foot massage. That should prove to the gay community that you aren’t a homophobe.
