Hibbert came in at 17th. Not bad, but he should improve this year and seadily move up the list. By the way Big Z get abussed in all of the photos this time.

17. Roy Hibbert (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/4479/;_ylt=AuTx5x_OkK3HFHtsibQ1XDLYrYZ4)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/4479/news;_ylt=AoSUxXXSdMXne1ebSxjLpDHYrYZ4), Indiana Pacers (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/teams/ind/;_ylt=Ao5LcGYutHySV_BvbAzYr.fYrYZ4) (last year: unranked)
Hibbert has had his growing pains, for sure. From fouling too much in his rookie year to serving as Pacer coach Jim O'Brien's go-to screaming post in his second. But the Georgetown product has significant skills in the pivot, and don't be surprised if Roy comes out of nowhere in 2010-11 to act as one of the better passing big men in the NBA. His growing ease with the high post, combined with his already potent low-post play gives Indiana a real up-and-comer.
