For the lineup of basketball on Christmas Day, ESPN asked Pacers C Roy Hibbert to take over the @NBAonESPN Twitter account along with Trailblazers guard CJ McCollum. According to Sports World News, someone at ESPN messed up and posted a picture of Hibbert’s teammate, Ian Mahinmi, on it’s webpage to promote the social media event. Needless to say, Hibbert was not pleased and tweeted ESPN about it.

Apparently, Hibbert also tweeted the following:

“@ESPNNBA don’t know how 2feel about this. #Hurt.”

The alleged tweet has since been deleted, but ESPN should not be expecting any help from Hibbert anytime soon after this debacle.
