Tony Parker fooled Roy Hibbert so badly he missed a shot (Video)
Tony Parker embarrassed Roy Hibbert so badly on Saturday night that the San Antonio Spurs guard caught himself by surprise.
Hibbert left the game in the first half with an ankle injury after Parker put him on roller skates. Parker drove to the lane and got Hibbert to bite on a shot fake, and Hibbert lost his balance and fell to the floor. Parker was unable to convert the layup, and he later admitted he was “surprised” after making Hibbert look so bad.

Fortunately, X-rays on Hibbert’s ankle came back negative. The only way that play would have been worse is if Parker literally broke the big man’s ankles.
Parker must have been watching what Kawhi Leonard did to J.J. Redick earlier this season (video here). That was ruthless.
