Gee Mr Obrien, maybe you dont have it right.Eric P in Naptown:
Joel, Do you see Roy Hibbert becoming an above average Center at some point in his career? Wouldn't he do much better in a half court system? Obie is killing him!
Actually yeah, I do see him being a great center is a slowdown system. He's got a decent set of offensive skills, but he's a great shot blocker and could be a much better rebounder if he didn't have to play in transition so much. I was just talking to another writer at the Bulls/Pacers game the other night about how I really didn't think Hibbert would amount to much when he first came out, but he's shown a lot this season to change my mind. Now, Hasheem Thabeet is hopeless in my opinion, and I when I watch him versus Hibbert I see two totally different guys. Hibbert's going to be absolutely fine. I'm liking him more and more every time I watch him.
Just maybe you CAN win with a low post game as a focal point.
