The Pacers are quickly going from ‘America’s Sweethearts’ to America’s favorite punchline in the NBA. The mental mistakes that have come since they were Eastern Conference darlings has been heavy.
Now, there’s reports that Hibbert’s second half benching in Sunday’s game vs the Hawks was because Hibbert was more focused on watching King of the Hill promos than staying focused on the game during the halftime.
Hibbert was watching "King of the Hill" promo while teammates focused in. Very, very poor body language from one of the "leaders" of this tm

The Pacers would go on to lose 107-88 and further drive the question ‘what’s wrong with the Pacers’. Really, cartoons mean more than playoff seeding? Interesting.
