Roy Hibbert is tired of the Indiana Pacers not getting the respect they deserve.

After the Pacers improved to 16-1 with a 105-100 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Dec. 1, Hibbert was not happy that his team wasn't the area of focus.

After the game, Hibbert tweeted out the following message:

Hibbert is a very prideful player on a Pacers team that isn't getting the national recognition it deserves, and on this particular matter, it's hard to argue with his message.

The Pacers are the best team in basketball right now.

The style of play Indiana uses to succeed isn't going to attract casual fans. It's unlikely the Pacers will wind up in SportsCenter's Top 10 plays, but that's not their identity. 

This is a team built on impressive defense, killer chemistry and the ability to win ugly. Although the Pacers are going to be ignored by some, this is a team that should be watched by all basketball fans.

It's not often we get to watch a group of guys work so well with one another on a nightly basis, and it's clear that everyone on the roster is playing with a major chip on their shoulder.

They're all looking to prove a point that they're well on their way to making with their impressive start.

The Indiana Pacers are here, and they're not going anywhere.

If you don't believe me, just ask Roy Hibbert. He won't be afraid to speak his mind.
