Roy Hibbert commits flagrant foul on LeBron James (VIDEO)

Late in the third quarter of Friday night’s contest between the Cavaliers and the Pacers, LeBron James got out on the break, and appeared to have a clear lane to the basket.

That’s when Roy Hibbert stepped in.

Hibbert attempted to grab LeBron in midair to prevent him from scoring the easy two points, and while it wasn’t a complete hatchet job, the excessive contact created enough of a dangerous play for the referees to rule it as a flagrant.

LeBron appeared to aggravate his wrist on the play, but may have just been selling the contact a bit; he remained in the game.
