Apparently something of Lance Stephenson rubbed off on Roy Hibbert last year, because Hibbert’s not really a flopper but check out this move from against the Trail Blazers Thursday night:
Robin Lopez is strong, he’s not that strong.
The league was less amused and gave Roy Hibbert a flopping warning for this.
Which borders on meaningless, as we have mentioned before. If Hibbert is cited as flopping one more time this season, he has to pay a $5,000 fine. Which works out to 0.0003 percent of his salary this season. That’ll teach him.
Hibbert had 9 points on 10 shots in what was an easy Portland win.
