Set your DVR: Roy Hibbert on “Parks & Recreation” Thursday

Leave a comment

We here at PBT are huge “Parks and Recreation” fans — find another blog that has done the NBA version of Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness.

You should be watching this show every Thursday night anyway (right here on NBC!), but now we’re giving you an even better reason — Roy Hibbert’s debut. Yes, the Pacers Roy Hibbert. What, you know another one? He will have a part in this week’s episode.

Parks and Recreation’s premise is based around the parks and recreation department in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana. Having current of former Pacer player as a basketball consultant fits with the show story arc well — they have used Detlef Schrempf in the past.

Hibbert should be an awesome fit. We’d be watching even Hibbert were not on the show, but now it gives you another reason to jump in. Watch because the show is funny. Watch because we don’t want show runner Michael Schur to have to go back to sports blogging.

Pacers Hibbert on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. Yes!

You should be watching Parks and Recreation Thursday nights.

I say that not because my paychecks come out of 30 Rock — well not completely — I say that because it’s just damn funny. I say that because Ron Swanson is one of the best, most original characters on television right now. I say that because the show runner (Michael Schur) was part of one of the best blogs ever, Fire Joe Morgan.

We’re big fans here — we have the Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness NBA style.

Another reason to watch – the Pacers Roy Hibbert is going to be on the show next season.

Detlef Schrempf has been on the show in the past — another reason to watch — and he tweeted this earlier this week (via Eric “I love Merlin” Freeman at Ball Don’t Lie):

Lots of fun on the set of Park & Rec. Aziz Anzari & Ben Schwartz are hilarious! Gotta give it up for Roy Hibbert for his first acting gig!

The show is based around the Parks and Recreation department in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana. Fitting in a Pacer player as a basketball consultant actually fits with the show story arc well. And Hibbert is a perfect choice.

But if you take one thing away from this post, it should not be that Schrempf tweets, it should be that you need to be watching Parks and Recreation. It’s good.
