Roy Hibberthe of “Parks & Rec” fame, who also happens to be the starting center for the Indiana Pacers — has pet peeves, just like the rest of us. And not just people who don’t use their turn signals.

He was on 790 The Ticket in Miami and was asked what is the worst part of being 7’2”.

“People coming up to me asking me if I’m Hasheem Thabeet. That’s probably the worst thing. No offense to him, but I look nothing like him.”

That’s funny. Especially the no offense part.

Don’t worry, on the court nobody is going to confuse you two. Which is very good for you, Roy. No offense, Hasheem.

Hat tip to Ball Don’t Lie.

    I admit, I have made that mistake too… at least he has a sense of humor about it!

    He should’ve said, “No offense, I’m still playing basketball.”
