NBA fines Roy Hibbert $75,000 for using gay slur

Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert has been fined $75,000 by the NBA for using a gay slur during his postgame news conference Saturday night.

Hibbert responded "no homo" to a question after the Pacers' 91-77 victory over the Miami Heat forced a deciding Game 7 in the Eastern Conference finals.
