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.
