Hibbert to Pay Stephenson’s Fine
Earlier today, the NBA announced that Pacers center Roy Hibbert is being suspended for one game due to an altercation with David Lee of the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, February 26, 2013. It was also announced that Pacers guard Lance Stephenson was fined $35,000 for his role in the altercation.
Not long after the suspension and fines were levied, The Indianapolis Star reported that Hibbert will be paying Stephenson’s fine. Pacers GM Kevin Pritchard tweeted that Hibbert’s gesture was “amazing” and that the Pacers are truly a team.
