“They were disrespectful and offensive and not a reflection of my personal views,” Hibbert said in the statement. “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.”

In his statement Sunday, he said, “I sincerely have deep regret over my choice of words last night.”

“It’s simple. I support him. I know he’s not that person and that it was a mistake,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. “He knows he’s wrong. I didn’t have to tell him that and we all love and support him.” – foxsports

Hibbert could be disciplined by the NBA, though he said Saturday night that he didn’t care if he got fined. – foxsports

Update: Hibbert fined $75K for rant


rue Roy Hibbert evoked some kung-fu moves and locked up the paint with 24 points and 11 boards in the Indiana Pacer’s 91-77 game 6 win over the Miami Heat on Saturday night! The conversation got interesting in his post-game rant where he spit curse-words and a even a homophobic slur “no homo!” Hibbert was riled up from the reporters somewhat insulting remarks about him being only in the top ten big men in the NBA for the entire season! Hibbert did apologize (quotes above) this afternoon, but his penalty will most likely be a stiff fine and possibly discipline to begin next season?! Leave a comment below. Check out the cursing incident and the homophobic slur on video above!
