Although Roy Hibbert and Jeremy Lin are both sitting at home, they still got a bit of notice before Game 1 of the NBA Finals. The Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks are both at home, but that does not mean those two can’t have fun. They engaged in a Skype scavenger hunt on Jimmy Kimmel.
I’m not going to lie, but that was a pretty funny video. You have to have a little bit of humor to go along with that and both guys did great. This helps expose Roy Hibbert to more of the nation. Remember, the man is about to get a big contract this offseason. Might as well get some exposure to maybe raise your dollar value.
Don’t forget, Jeremy Lin is also going to be looking for a new contract. Both of these guys can use this exposure to stay fresh in people’s minds. Raising your profiles never hurts when you are looking for a new contract.
Hopefully the game between the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder can live up to the preshow. If you have things like this going on, it is going to be hard for people to concentrate on how good the game is. I like how basketball is raising the bar. Outside of baseball games that mean nothing right now, basketball is all we got. They are doing their best to dominate the air and keep people interested in the product.
