IFWT_Hibbert Booker

Whispers *hey guys it’s just preseason*….  Things got heated on Tuesday night during a preseason game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz.

During the third quarter of Utah’s 117-114 overtime win over L.A., Booker and Julius Randle got tangled up on the court. Booker picked up a technical foul and Hibbert raced over to defend his teammate, bouncing Booker with his chest in the process. Booker swung at Hibbert’s head which was swaggy since Hibbert is the one that ran up but Booker backpedalled after delivering the swing so he lost points off that.

Booker declined to speak with reporters about the altercation after the game.

Hibbert had this to say:

“We play together. I’m not going to speak too much about that play,” Hibbert told reporters in the locker room after the game. “Like I said, he’s the face of this team for the future and, one through 15, I’d step up for anybody, anybody in the starting five to the guys at the end of the bench. We play as a team and I have everybody’s back.”
