    It's not an excuse.

    It's the truth.

    Hibbert is best center in the east this moment. If you want more, JV isn't a rookie anymore, coaches, players around the league know who JV is and that just means JV has to work harder for every single point this season.

    What's so funny here? This dude had potential to be long-term center - we all knew that. It took only 3 seasons to turn him into monster center... and he's getting better every day.

    He gets that praise for his motor, potential, scrapping and that feeling to get better every day. Everything else will come with the time.

    I'm little bit upset by how JV plays, but it's perfectly normal - he'll have some bad nights and some good ones too.

    Today he's got great test again.

    Its the nba. Every game will be a great test. Tonight's game should be a good test for Val as hes going against Kanter and Favors who've been on a massive tear recently. These two guys are more similar to Val in age and experience so it'll be interesting to see the match-ups tonight. Something tells me that JV is going off for 20 and 10 against the jazz

    I think raps didn't want to wait Roy to develop, that's why they put Bargnani in SF position while Bosh and Oneal played pf/c sure.. it ended badly.

    Pick 17 (Hibbert) was made on request by the Pacers. No one knows if BC would have picked him had he retained the pick for the Raptors.

    Not one of JV's stellar offensive games but he ended with 5 pf guarding a beast in Hibbert but also had a better stat line in a +3 while Hibbert had a -2 in about the same mins.

    Isn't it funny how we would have drafted Alexis Ajinca if the pick was ours and we weren't drafting for Indiana.

    I seem to recall that BC was very high on Ajinca at the time.

    Considering we traded Jonathan Bender to Indiana all those years ago for Antonio Davis (who went on to become an All-Star Center), I suppose its just balancing out.

    Yeah, it has been funny to see the changing of the avatars.

    Your's was a great rebuttal.
