There may have been plenty of bad stories about police in recent weeks, but an NBA star has captured an emotional moment between a cop and a homeless man. Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert said the cop flashed his lights and pulled over, but when he got out of the car, instead of arresting the man, he handed him a spare pair of boots. Hibbert posted a picture to his Instagram account yesterday, saying: 'Just seen an Indy police officer pull over. Go into his trunk and give a homeless guy a pair of shiny boots.' Daily Mail

Hibbert said that when the officer handed the shoes over, the homeless man appeared to thank him, but the cop didn't respond and instead just climbed back into his car and drove away. Hibbert said he has since contacted the police department to try and track down the officer in order to give him free tickets to a basketball game. Daily Mail

Brazil scored 14 fast break points to Argentina’s zero. Prigioni and Scola ended the game in foul trouble, and for the latter, he knew that Brazil had him figured out. Afterwards in the mixed zone, he answered every question hurriedly, and became agitated when asked about Argentina’s group of players, most notably himself, Manu Ginobili and Carlos Delfino, the latter two, not playing in this World Cup due to injury. “What group,” Scola said. “Manu is not here. Manu hasn’t been here in a couple of years. Delfino’s not here. What is this group? We keep talking about a group but it doesn’t exist. We keep changing players every year and it’s probably two or three players that played in the Olympics before that won medals so what is exactly this group?” TalkBasket

Regardless, Turner never seemed comfortable with his new team. And as the Pacers collectively started to slide, the addition of Turner was viewed as one of the reasons. "Everybody is down on (Turner) because of how the 'trade' happened and what happened in the trade and how Indiana played," Sullinger said. "People misunderstand Evan. He's a great basketball player, a great teammate. I've known him for years. He's all about winning. That's his main goal." CSNNE.com

Arinze Onuaku has signed with the Pacers according to the RealGM.com Transactions log. The length or terms of the deal are unclear, but it’s most likely a non-guaranteed camp deal.

When Roland Lazenby — author of the new biography “Michael Jordan: The Life” and numerous other sports books — came to the Varsity Letters sports reading series in New York this summer, one intrepid Wizards fan hazarded a question. Lazenby had just wrapped up what largely came across as a defense of Michael Jordan, the person, who — since the end of the era of “Space Jam,” the McDonald’s commercial with Larry Bird, and “It’s Gotta Be the Shoes” — has seen less than favorable coverage. “What do you make of Jordan’s time with the Wizards?” the Wizards fan asked, momentarily giving the underground bar where Lazenby spoke the same sort of hushed anticipation as a Thanksgiving dinner where someone mentions Uncle Larry’s affair, or the Cheever Letters, or whatever family secret no one’s brave enough to mention without being more than a few Scotches or eggnogs in.

With just a few weeks remaining until training camp, the Wizards have room to add another player to their 15-man roster. Whether they start camp with 14 players remains to be seen, but if they do add someone it won’t be Chris Singleton. The free-agent forward agreed to terms with the Indiana Pacers a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Post’s Michael Lee. Eurobasket first reported the signing. Washington Post

Reports out of Spain yesterday suggested Euroleague powerhouse Real Madrid was very interested in acquiring Argentinian forward Luis Scola. Earlier in the day, though, Scola told HoopsHype he had no plans to go anywhere. "I have a contract with the Pacers and I will continue there," Scola said. "We'll see what happens next year."

Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert donated $1 million to Georgetown University on Tuesday. Hibbert, who played for the Hoyas from 2004-08, made the donation to the John R. Thompson Jr. Intercollegiate Athletics Center in honor of the school’s hall of fame basketball coach. “I am deeply indebted to Georgetown University and the basketball program for all they have done for me,” Hibbert said in a press release. “I put in a lot of hard work to get where I am, but I was given a tremendous amount of guidance both on and off the floor from coach Thompson III and I wouldn’t be here without him.” Indianapolis Star
