roy-hibbert-vs-steph-curry

First things first, don’t get in fights. They’re silly and grownups probably shouldn’t be hitting each other very often. These are my opinions regarding fighting.

But sometimes fights happen, like during last night’s Pacers-Warriors game. And sometimes, when you’re in one of those situations, you end up doing things you never would otherwise, like when Roy Hibbert repeatedly threw Stephen Curry to the ground after going chest-to-chest with David Lee. And when that happens, you better have a hilarious quote on the ready, like Roy Hibbert did, or else you’re going to look like a real jerk. From the AP:

”Seriously, I didn’t even feel him,” Hibbert said of Curry. ”I saw some light-skinned guy. I don’t know if it was Klay Thompson or Steph Curry, I just knew there was a light-skinned guy by me.”

I wouldn’t say all is forgiven here, since Roy Hibbert is definitely getting suspended for wilding out, throwing bows and forearm shivering like he’s a linebacker shedding a block, but this is a pretty good start. I mean, Stephen Curry might be mad about what went down (him mostly), but once he reads this he won’t be able to help chuckling.

It’s the fog of war, you guys, and something like this happened to a group of friends of mine not too long ago. Due to some squabbling with another group of bros, these guys ended up in a huge fight in some random industrial park after taking a wrong turn and things really got out of hand fast. We’re talking guys catching on fire while riding horses. It was scary. One of my buddies, I’m ashamed to say, somehow found a hand grenade and a trident and brought them to the fight, where he ended up stabbing another guy in the heart. I’m telling you, things really jumped up a notch.

So yeah, I get what Roy Hibbert was saying. All these guys were coming at him, he saw “some light-skinned guy” in a blue jersey and tossed him aside like it was nothing. When you find yourself in a vicious cock fight, you have to keep your head on a swivel. And apparently, you also have to throw any light-skinned guy who gets near you. It’s science.

  1. Well that escalated quickly!

  2. “some light skin guy”

    that’s what zo said about Jeff Van Gundy in 97′

  3. I’d been meaning to talk to him about that. He should find himself a safe house or a relative close by, lay low for awhile. Because he’s probably wanted for a hate crime.

  4. this is very bad

  5. Watching Curry go after Hibbert was like watching Chris Paul Junior roughhousing with his dad at the All Star Game. Except CP3 Jr doesn’t have Curry’s unfortunate facial hair.

  6. Roy was pushed so he pushed back, then a banny rooster jumped on him so Roy pushed the rooster aside, the rooster came at him again and again Roy threw the rooster aside, then Roy was pushed so hard it almost knocked him down, so Roy walked away. Im not so sure Roy shouldv’e been ejected, maybe a tech for the original push. And to me a suspension is definately not warranted.

    • I mostly agree. It’s really not Hibbert’s fault that he weights twice as much as Curry. He was more or less only trying to defend himself. I would not call it rage mode and it would not be fair, if Hibbert gets suspended longer than Curry or David Lee.

      • Exactly, If someone comes at you, especially in the middle of something like this, you would at least throw them aside. I feel sorry for Roy everyone was after him. The reason they ended up in the crown is because Roy was pushed that direction.

  7. My favourite part was curry running up to hibbert and getting tossed twice. That has to be so infuriating. Probably why he kept going back

  8. Mike Tyson explaining what he would have done if he were Stephen Curry:

  9. Pacers stood strong together around Hibbert while all Lee had was Curry barking around everyones ankles, the other three arrive late and sort of look confused. If I was Lee I would be mad at them not Hibbert….. and I think the barking dog should get the bigger suspension as he continued the shoving match until it reached the stands.

  10. Like a chiwawa at his heels.

  11. Anchorman best movie ever. I’m Ron Burgundy?
