Pacers' Roy Hibbert apologizes for slur after Game 6

Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert has apologized for using a gay slur and cursing during his news conference after Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.

The team issued a statement from Hibbert on Sunday morning in which he said he was sorry for his "insensitive remarks." Hibbert says the phrase he used isn't "appropriate in any setting, private or public" and his language "definitely has no place in a public forum, especially over live television."

After Saturday night's win, Hibbert ended a response to a question about his defense on Miami's LeBron James with "no homo." He also referred to reporters as "y'all (expletive)."

Hibbert could be disciplined by the NBA, but the center said Saturday that he didn't care if he got fined.
