Roy Hibbert's teammates weren't the only people talking about his struggles on Monday. Eight games into a historically poor postseason, Hibbert's play has attracted all sorts of attention. The Indiana Pacers center should probably steer clear of social media for a little while. Former star Tracy McGrady took aim at his zero-point, zero-rebound stat line shortly after the 102-96 Washington Wizards win in Game 1.

Fellow former All-Star Gilbert Arenas, who still counts himself as a Wizards fan, also got a couple of digs in.
It feels like Hibbert's run as the presumptive favorite to win Defensive Player of the Year was many, many moons ago. It's no coincidence that it also feels like a long time since anyone took the Pacers seriously as contenders. Hibbert told reporters he needed to look within himself on Monday, and Indiana can only hope he finds some answers quickly.
