The struggles of the Indiana Pacers have been well-documented.
Although they accomplished their goal of being the top overall seed so they could host the Miami Heat if there is a game 7 rematch in the Eastern Conference Finals this season, they limped into the playoffs. They won their final two games, but had lost eight of their previous 11.
The player taking most of the heat during this poor streak is center Roy Hibbert, who had another quiet year scoring and on the glass (he averaged 10.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game this season).
Things got worse on Saturday night when the Pacers were blown out in game 1 by the eighth-seeded Atlanta Hawks and Hibbert had just eight points, eight rebounds and did not block a shot.
On Monday, Page Q Sports posted a fake advertisement for Hibbert on Amazon that got a lot of laughs.

The page pokes fun at Hibbert’s salary and his lack of big numbers throughout his career, among other things.
Hibbert’s Pacers will take on the Hawks in game 2 Tuesday night. Tip-off is at 7:00 pm EST and the game is on TNT.
