Pacers’ Hibbert slapped with $75,000 fine for saying ‘no homo’

Watch what you say in the NBA.

Forward Roy Hibbert of the Indiana Pacers was fined $75,000 last night for saying “no homo” during a post-game press conference.

Hibbert was answering a question about his defensive play against the Miami Heat’s LeBron James.

(Thats $70,000 more then LeBron was fined for his faking a fall — “flopping” — in Game 4.)

For good measure, Hibbert threw in an obscenity directed at the media as well.

The NBA acted swiftly and fined Hibbert for the remarks.

Hibbert responded in a statement released by the Pacers:

“I am apologizing for insensitive remarks made during the postgame press conference after our victory over Miami Saturday night. They were disrespectful and offensive and not a reflection of my personal views. I used a slang term that is not appropriate in any setting, private or public, and the language I used definitely has no place in a public forum, especially over live television. I apologize to those who I have offended, to our fans and to the Pacers’ organization.”
