INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Roy Hibbert used a gay slur in one answer and a curse to refer to the media in another during his news conference following Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals, putting himself in line for being disciplined by the NBA.

Hibbert ended a response to a question about his defense on LeBron James with “no homo.” Hibbert had drawn a key charge on James in Indiana’s 91-77 victory over Miami on Saturday and lamented not providing enough help to teammate Paul George on James in Game 3.

Hibbert was later asked why he finished so low in voting for Defensive Player of the Year, telling reporters that it was “because y’all (expletive) don’t watch us play throughout the year, to tell you the truth.”

The center added that he didn’t care if he got fined.
