ALL BALL NERVE CENTER – Pacers center Roy Hibbert had a pretty good day yesterday. His team throttled the Atlanta Hawks in their playoff opener, 107-90, and Hibbert finished with 16 points and eight rebounds.
Meanwhile, yesterday Warriors forward David Lee had a no-good, very bad day. Less than 24 hours after the Warriors lost their first game, 97-95, on a last-second shot from Andre Miller, it was announced that Lee would miss the rest of the postseason after suffering a complete tear of his hip flexor.
And although these two men are obviously competitors, at heart they are both gentlemen, as we saw from their honest and blunt interaction on Twitter earlier today. (Get well soon, D-Lee!)
