Pacers fans are going bananas after coach Frank Vogel subbed out center Roy Hibbert — twice — on a couple of crucial defensive possessions late in Wednesday’s game against the Heat. Hibbert’s absence gave LeBron James free reign to drive to the hoop, including on Miami’s game-winning play that began with 2.2 seconds on the clock.
Sadly, we will never know what those plays might have looked like had Hibbert been on the court. Oh, wait. Yes we do.
Thanks to a split-screen photo that has gone viral, fans get a look at exactly what Hibbert might have done. The photo shows James attempting his lefty layup unabated, side-by-side with Carmelo Anthony‘s dunk attempt in the Eastern Conference semifinals getting stuffed by the Pacers’ 7-foot-2 rim protector.
