    I have hibbert on my fantasy team and I'm happy that he's doing well. Whether or not he sustains his performance is something different entirely. He may have slimmed down in the off season, but if the Pacers are running and gunning for 82 games, I think he'll be getting gassed around the 35 game mark.

    This post would be relevant if Hibbert had anything to do with the Raptors. We drafted him for the Pacers. And if the Raps had kept the 17th pick that year, they would never have drafted him. They needed wings a hell of a lot more than they needed bigs.

    He'll have an occasional good game, but he's not as valuable as Bargnani. Hibbert is just huge, he's pretty bad for a 7'2 270 pound guy... can't rebound too well for his size... And it's only the beggining of the season, he'll get back to his normal games soon. He did the same thing last year, a bunch of double doubles early in the season and then fail..

    Bargnani isnt valuable and neither are his 1.6 rebound a game average....but yes i expect a guy named Panini to be mad about this fact....that Hibbert in his 2nd year is already a better player...

    I'm saying this for the LAST time.

    If we had kept that pick, that DOES NOT MEAN WE WOULD HAVE PICKED HIBBERT.

    Chances are we WOULDN'T have because we HAD BARGNANI.


    Get over it!

    Bargnani is pretty valuable. He scores and spreads the court, yes he is a bad rebounder and a bad defender but his impact is a lot larger and important than Hibbert. Anyways, Hibbert is irrelevant to us, we only picked him because Indiana wanted him, and if he was actually good he would have gone a lot higher in the draft, who doesn't want a 7'2 center? He is big, grabs boards that fall onto him, has pretty okay post moves (only one good game, but he'll slow down). He's not a better player that's for sure.
    And why exactly would I be mad that Hibbert is a "better" player? I have nothing to do with him or Bargnani. Bargnani will get his $50M whether you or I like it, and just because I'm Italian doesn't mean I'm biased towards "threats" against Bargnani.
    Bargnani is not the best player in the league, probably cracks top 20 center, but you're the one who started this pointless thread and involved Bargnani for no reason.
    And if we would have kept the pick, we would NOT have picked Hibbert. Because no one in the league apart from Indiana liked him, and as some other member already posted, we probably would have taken Hickson. Hibbert has nothing to do with Toronto, never has. We couldn't have had him if we didn't trade for JO. It's like saying we could have gotten Kobe in 96.

    Ya, let's start the '96 draft bashing!! What was Toronto thinking?? We could have had Ray Allen, Kobe or Nash!!! We should go back to every draft and second guess our picks. Then we could look at the stock market, too. Enron looked great at the time. Guess we shouldn't have made them the number one pick....

    Dude just quiet down with ur irrelevant opinion,thats not the debate anyone is having cept for people like you who come in late and dont know what they are talking about...I am simply arguing Hibbert in a much shorter time is a much more valuable and better center in this league than Andrea......It no longer has anything to do with that trade...now go back read the tail end of that OTHER thread or get the hell outta here with your half assed attention whoring posts...

    Hibbert would not have been the pick had we still had the selection. In all liklihood, I remember Hickson coming back to work out twice for the Raptors. Batum was also high on the Raptors' list. Hibbert would NOT have been our selection.

    It's not an argument. You were just being educated. That's all. You should take notes.

    If you wanted to blab about Hibbert - and only Hibbert, maybe you should have taken it to the NBA section considering the topic of Roy Hibbert isn't Raptors related at all. Or maybe you should have found the thread that already has all that Hibbert content in and posted it there. I think you're the one who should have been reading.

    Batum. Now there's a player I can get upset about not drafting. I remember him being discussed for the Raps and to be honest I was going "jeez another skinny kid from Europe". He is a keeper now.

    The issue with Batum was that he had a heart condition. Not sure if he still has it or not. Maybe he's taking certain medications to ease the condition.

    Exactly.

    Maybe Trife should actually discuss something when starting a thread, instead of saying "Hibbert. That guy should hang his head. Blah blah blah."
