Pacers’ Roy Hibbert shows off his swollen elbow much to the dismay of everyone
As good as Roy Hibbert has been this season, it’s going to be hard to think of the Pacers’ center for anything else other than his gnarly elbow now.
Hibbert posted a photo of his insanely swollen elbow on Instagram on Wednesday, noting: “Elbow looking extra fat today. Bout to go do my pregame shooting. Doesn’t hurt. #focussed.”
Warning: This photo is Not Safe For Lunch:
As hard it is to believe that a bump like that couldn’t be bothering him, Hibbert did have 13 points (on 6-of-9 shooting), nine rebounds and two blocks in the Pacers’ 95-86 win over the Jazz on Wednesday. He’s averaging 12.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and a career-best 3.4 blocks for the season, and has earned a place in the early discussion for Defensive Player of the Year.
Strangely enough, Hibbert has apparently boasted about the swollen elbow for quite some time. The picture on top of this story was taken last May, and in July Hibbert posted this photo on his Instagram account, revealing himself to be truly a multitalented big man:
And just in case Hibbert’s elbow wasn’t enough to ruin your day, here’s a photo he posted of teammate Lance Stephenson’s feet, which he argues are “the worst feet in the league.”
We’re not going to argue.
