Roy Hibbert got a visit from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar during martial arts training

It looks like Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert's offseason Brazilian jiu-jitsu training is still going strong -- and that he got a visit from a legend this past week, too.

Last month, Hibbert started his offseason workouts at the legendary Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy, and on Monday, Rener Gracie posted a photo on Instagram of Hibbert, looking fresh off of a workout, posing with NBA Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. It's become something of a summer tradition for Hibbert to meet up with Abdul-Jabbar; last offseason, Hibbert turned to the master of the skyhook to "save his game." So it's good to see that the relationship between the two is going strong.
