Roy Hibbert apologizes for comments
Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol won the award.
Hibbert's other comment was more subtle but probably responsible for the bigger fine.
He took a hard charge from LeBron James in the fourth quarter at the rim and used inappropriate slang to describe it.
"There was Game 3 here that I felt I let Paul (George) down in terms of having his back when LeBron was scoring in the post or getting into the paint because they stretched me out so much — no homo — but I want to be there for him."
Hibbert did apologize for his remarks Sunday 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. I sincerely have deep regret over my choice of words last night."
