Game 2 of the Eastern Conference playoff series between the Indiana Pacers and the Atlanta Hawks is underway on Tuesday night, and the Pacers really need to get that win tonight at home to even the series at one game apiece after falling short in Game 1.

The last few weeks of the season haven’t been kind to the Pacers, and Roy Hibbert is doing his best to keep his team alive by doing his best Kareem Abdul-Jabbar impression in the first half.

Only thing was, in this attempt to act like the legend, he failed miserably

Watch below as Hibbert takes the pass from Luis Scola and completely airballs the sky hook attempt.


Maybe Hibbert should stay away from the flashiness and just stick to getting the ball to the rim with force.
