MIAMI -- Indiana Pacers centre Roy Hibbert was fined $75,000 on Sunday by the NBA for using a gay slur and cursing during his news conference after Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. wholesale jerseys . Hibbert also apologized for the comments. "While Roy has issued an apology, which is no doubt sincere, a fine is necessary to reinforce that such offensive comments will not be tolerated by the NBA," Commissioner David Stern said in a statement. Earlier Sunday, the team issued a statement from Hibbert in which he said he was sorry for his "insensitive remarks." "They were disrespectful and offensive and not a reflection of my personal views," he said in the statement. "I used a slang term that is not appropriate in any setting, private or public, and the language I used definitely has no place in a public forum, especially over live television." After Saturday nights win, Hibbert ended a response to a question about his defence on Miamis LeBron James with "no homo," a phrase that implies fear of appearing gay. He also called reporters an offensive term. Before departing for Miami, where Game 7 will be played Monday night, Pacers coach Frank Vogel told reporters he had already spoken with Hibbert and described the 2012 All-Star centre as "contrite." Players were not available Sunday. With the series tied at three games apiece and a trip to the NBA Finals at stake Monday, distractions are the last thing this young Pacers squad needs as it tries to prevent the Heat from making what many expected to be a stroll into their third straight NBA Finals. The Pacers have appeared in the finals only once, in 2000, when they lost in six games to the Los Angeles Lakers. So Vogel did what he could to calm down the brewing controversy while still backing the big man who has given Indiana this chance by routinely beating up the defending NBA champions inside. "Its simple. I support him. I know hes not that person and that it was a mistake," Vogel said. "He knows hes wrong. I didnt have to tell him that and we all love and support him." Hibbert said Saturday night that he didnt care if he got fined. In his statement Sunday, he said, "I sincerely have deep regret over my choice of words last night." Hibbert had drawn a key charge on James in Indianas 91-77 victory that evened the series and lamented not providing enough help defensively to teammate Paul George on James in Game 3. Hibbert was later asked why he finished so low in voting for Defensive Player of the Year, telling reporters that it was "because yall (expletives) dont watch us play throughout the year, to tell you the truth." There was some irony in that Hibbert was sharing the dais with George when he said those words. George was the NBAs Most Improved Player this season, as selected earlier this spring by a voting panel of writers and broadcasters who cover the league. The 7-foot-2 Hibberts star turn has been a major reason Indiana has pushed the defending champion Heat to a Game 7. He has averaged 22.8 points and 10.8 rebounds in the series, up from 11.9 points and 8.3 rebounds in the regular season. But now, suddenly, the Pacers big man who has been the talk of the series has become the centre of attention for a different reason. "Obviously, he made a great mistake. He feels horribly about it," Vogel said. "I told him, basically, that weve got to move on from it." jerseys from china .
