Apparently, Ian Mahinmi was sick and tired of watching fellow Indiana Pacers pivot Roy Hibbert get all the love for his recent resurgence.

Hence this nasty bully-ball throwdown over the Washington Wizards' Nene in the second quarter of Tuesday night's Eastern Conference Semifinal showdown, which Indiana entered up 3-1.
