I have a list of all the players you've blocked in your career and how many times you blocked them. Your job is to guess who you've blocked the most. Hint: Think Central Division. Roy Hibbert: Ohh. Maybe somebody on Chicago? I was thinking maybe Luol when he was over there. TH: Nah. You've only blocked Luol Deng seven times. This guy you've blocked 18 times. Roy Hibbert: Hmm ... Wait, was it Carlos? Yeah, it's definitely Carlos. TH: Yup, Carlos Boozer. Why is he so easy to block? ESPN.com

Lot of surprises there, including Lopez' teammate Mason Plumlee ahead of Tim Duncan. Then again, Hollins is mostly using Plumlee only against bench players so he's boosting numbers that way. Same might be true of Gobert. Omer Asik, Roy Hibbert, Gasol, those are all established. Maybe most impressive is Robin Lopez and Chris Kaman's numbers together. That's a big deal for Portand, who was atrocious last year at defense. They finished 16th in defensive efficiency, but had outlier performances against the West that were much worse. They've ticked up to 10th this season. CBSSports.com

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
