Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star reports:

Roy Hibbert

The NBA lockout has given Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert time to work on a possible second career.

The always-animated Hibbert will make his acting debut Thursday when he has a cameo appearance on the NBC show “Parks and Recreation,” which stars Amy Poehler.

InsideHoops.com editor says: This gives people like me, who used to sometimes watch Parks and Recreation but then simply forgot about it, a reason to give it another shot.
