    Default Hibbert?

    http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2014/7/6...umors-nba-2014

    I don't suppose the Pacers would straight up trade for Amir. However, is there anything the Raps could put together to make it a go.....and would it be worth trying?

    NO interest in a 7'2" magician whose only act is disappearing. No excuse under the sun for him not being able to his job. If your shot isn't falling that's one thing, for him be non factor on D and rebounding exposes serious character flaws for me. I'm obviously not a GM but I value character HIGHLY

    I don't value character but do value not putting up 0 slashes when a guy is over 7ft tall. He has to actively avoid the ball to make that happen.

    Are you kidding me?

    Roy Hibbert, the king of line-drive hook shots?

    Wow, everyone seems to have soured on this guy.

    Maybe if PGeorge wasn't cozying up to his girl, Roy wouldn't be such a headcase. I thought he showed good basketball IQ in his interviews during the 2013 playoffs. (sans the stupid "no homo comment") He's also a 7ft athletic big....

    I'm not saying we should go after him, just thought it might be worth a discussion.

    He's not particularly athletic at all. He's also already 27 and vastly overpaid. Other than blocks, he's below average in every way, including defensively as he's not athletic enough to be a good p'n'r defender (few Cs are), nor strong/aggressive enough to dominate in the post...on either end. Throw in the inconsistency and high maintenance personality, and there's no way I want to touch this guy.

    You can't be serious with that!

    Roy Hibbert has zero mobility whatsoever, there's a reason he can't rebound for shit it's because he runs like a 80 year old man

    PGeorge should be allowed to have Hibberts GF and his mom if he wants. Hibberts being a baby.

    Everyone wanted JV to be like hibbert, and all of sudden when the ENTIRE pacers team run into a wall for a month or so, people are acting like they've always hated the guy.

    Everyone wants JV to be like Duncan. Hibberts 7'3" tall.

    A month? What? Hibbert's entire game and psyche completely fell apart over the course of more than half the season.
    In January he shot 42% with 6.9 rebounds per game.
    February 46% and 7.1.
    March 42% and 4.2.
    April 24% and 3.2.
    Then in the playoffs he shot 45% with 5.5 rebounds per game.

    He makes over $30 million the next two years. And we have a young, talented centre who needs all the reps he can get. Unless we're moving JV for the likes of Kevin Love, and getting Hibbert super super cheap, it makes no sense.

    Ha, I love how quickly people's opinions change, including opinions of GMs.

    He's not really right for the Raptors, but someone is about to get a steal when they trade for this guy.

    Lots of teams are shooting 3's,stretching the floor and avoiding midrange shots. Hibberts height can't block perimeter shots and the long rebounds favor SF. Without an offensive game Hibbert is a relic, like Hayes and Perkins.
