Roy Hibbert Shines In Podium Debut

Saturday evening was a good one for Roy Hibbert. He had the best playoff game of his career with 24 points and 12 rebounds, led the Indiana Pacers to a 2-1 edge against the New York Knicks, and also made his debut at the podium to talk to national media. He was also ready to make a statement.

Hibbert was calm and collected and started off by telling everyone a little story about how he planned to wear a monocle in front of all the cameras. Most superstars around the league have made rather ridiculous fashion statements as they converse with journalists at post-game conferences, and Roy had an excellent idea that he unfortunately did not go through with.

ā€œI was advised by Paul George and David Benner not to set a trend by wearing a monocle, so Iā€™m not putting on the monocle,ā€ Hibbert said.

And what a shame it was. Can you imagine Hibbert with a monocle? No? Well, I took the liberty of using my far-and-beyond-average photoshop skills and this is what I came up with.
