Frankly, after a lockout-induced offseason spent chronicling the incessant planking of NBA types a year ago, we were hoping the "Gangnam Style"-fad would fade out by the time the NBA's regular season started up in late October. The odd offseason chronicle isn't the worst thing, but the last thing we want to do is take in an endless amount of post-dunk Gangnam celebrations in the way our mates at Shutdown Corner have had to do with the NFL's celebrations.
Then Indiana Pacer Roy Hibbert, as he always seems to do, goes and makes it fun for everyone.
Hibbert and some pals from the Pacers' cheering crew "Area 55" (so named for Roy's uniform number) put together a flash mob at a downtown Indianapolis mall on Sunday, spiraling out of nowhere to Gangnam it up; with Roy looking especially resplendent in a white suit that he told Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears he had especially designed for the performance. Watch:
The Pacers are fun, and they're going to win a ton of games this year. And now the next step is to turn all of those blue Indianapolis Colts T-shirts, as lined up outside Sbarro's, into gold and blue Roy Hibbert unis.
