Why would Roy's goal to be like someone he is already better than right now ?
Hibbert will get all-star consideration this year. I've watched some stuff in the pre-season and the kid seems focused and no longer lost on the court. Do, I care about the JO trade no.
In the long run Alabi/Davis will have good careers, perhaps better than Hibbert so I really don't care.

NOOOOOOOPE Meka had knee problems cming out of college too and people were skeptical about his offensive game at the pro level..where as Dwight was a far superior athlete with a much bigger ceiling....yes easy in hindsight but at the time i wasnt all that impressed with meka coming out and thought as well he could be a major stiff in the NBA...
Yeah but I'd take the fundamentally sound back to the basket Okafor any day.

I find it funny people talk about Hibberts stats relative to a shitty team but reject the same notion with bargnani instead suggesting he needs to be the No1 guy and other players took his space....

Sometimes, I like to buy a book on CD and listen to it, while reading music.
I am afraid it's not time to discuss the bad deal. Hibbert has no body of work to speak of in the reg. season and there are other factors as well:
1) The Raps needed to let TJ go because of his spinal problems and inability to share the pg pos. with Jose
2) Hibbert was in fact the Pacers choice. The Raps first rounder was part of the deal
3) It was also a salary dump for the Raps (TJ had 4 more yrs @ approx. 8 mill left)
4) JO was supposed to be that centre that was supposed to help/mesh with Bosh. Didnt work but his contract could have been a valuable expiry...which didnt work out as well.
If you feel a need to criticize that deal it should be about the player coming back and how his subsequent transaction was handled which also involved another first rounder which we incidentally got back (Bosh) and Marion who didnt stay. As someone else said you cannot be selective about the past and the circumstances surrounding a multiple faceted transaction. eg. did TJ turn out to be a great bargain for the Pacers?
Yeah I'm a BC fan and I will have to add to this argument to his detriment:
BC has lost out on better talent than Roy Hibbert...

When Tom Chambers dunks an NBA player gets their hops...
I'm still waiting for one of his vaunted moves to pan out. Lottery picks, second rounders with health issues (Jawaii most noticeably), big trades that flop, big signings that flop harder. It don't stop! If some fans expect to give him props for acquiring the Amir Johnson's and Sonny Weems of the league he should get criticism for trading 1st round picks for players that would help this team considerably now.
I agree hindsight is 20-20 but when is his FORESIGHT ever going to amount to anything significant? I hope Andrea and DeMar pan out, but I don't ever expect to see either of those players in an all-star game.
I totally agree that Howard was then and is now the right pick but I cannot agree with you that back then he appeared to be the safer pick. Not even close.
Hibbert sucks, statistically speaking bargs is like 10x better than him.
Bargs, Toronto's TRUE all star
I think I am going to start a new thread with the title:
So can we now give BC props for the Delfino&Ukic - A.Johnson&Weems trade?
