    Default Roy Hibbert & Paul George Fighting!!!

    Got ya!

    This fighting is completely acceptable. Looks like they're doing some MMA training, which can be nothing but a good thing for their overall physical fitness, not to mention toughness.

    Definately a fan of the training.

    The cardio is out of this world and core strength/body control is extremely important. Also it adds shock to the body, doing something it's not use too, which promotes increase in pathways.

    I think more athletes, from all different sports, would benefit from it.

    Roy mentioned on Pacers Crate and in a "Caught in the Web" extra w/Brunno that he started taking boxing lessons to help improve his balance. Maybe Paul George just loves to box and Roy needed a sparing partner.

    "Hey, Big Roy! Don't be hurtin' the rook! Goes easy on 'em!"

    Crazy thing is Roy doesn't look like a Center in the pics above. He looks more like a slimmed down PF.

    Brilliant for increasing quickness, cardio, and overall mental toughness!

    Not so brilliant if the intensity of the training is increased to a level where contact becomes meaningful on the part of the sparring partner. But, obviously, they will take necessary precautions to protect them from injuries.

    Overall, seems like a good move for Roy, and it couldn't hurt any of the players who are healthy enough to participate in practices that allow contact.

    I guess what I was trying to say was that if the sparring partner accidently increases the force with which he delivers contact to too high of an intensity, whether they be punches or kicks, that would increase the chance of injury whether it be directly from the contact itself, or from improper reactions to the contact on the part of the player that might lead to physical stressors that go beyond what their basketball training might have prepared various parts of their bodies to safely endure.

    It looks like Hibbert and George are doing some hanging out together and I'm ok with that. Hibbert seems like a very good influence.

    Indeed, glad to see this. Our players have always seemed to get along pretty well. Just glad to see it involving PG and Roy engaging in healthy activity such as MMA training rather than Stephen Jackson and Jamaal Tinsley engaging in a Showdown at the OK-Corral.

    Good point. The person who probably needed that influence the most though was Born Ready. I doubt he would have stood for that rookie hazing.

    There's certainly nothing wrong with this, but it brings to mind a story I once heard about Kevin McHale, I don't quite remember how it goes.

    Here's the gist of it:

    Someone commented to McHale about how his physique compared to that of some younger, more chiseled players. McHale's reply was something to the effect of "While they're in the weight room working out, I'm on the court working on my game."

    Well the good news then is that Roy also probably spends more time on the court working on his game than any other Pacer.

    Yeah, that's Austin Croshere. The hardest-working guy in history to fail to add a single move in 7 years.

    But he was always in really good shape!
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Hibbert looks extremely thin in that picture. I hope he's going to bulk up by the start of the season. Not on fat, of course, but he can definitely fit some more muscle on his frame.

    If Walton is able to improve Hibbert's lateral movement, I really don't care if he has dropped 10-15 pounds. Most likely, better lateral movement will translate directly into fewer fouls... and that is a good thing.

    The only things that have limited Hibbert's minutes have been his conditioning and his tendancy to foul, particularly when picking up perimeter players driving the ball. Boxing / kickboxing will most assuredly result in better conditioning, reactions and flexibility.

    You don't want to add mass to someone who is as naturally skinny as he is. Hibbert needs to add strength slower than other people. He is so long that his muscles might be just as "big" as other people, but are just stretched further. It is good for him to be an appropriate weight for him to manage throughout an 82 game season. JO tried putting on a bunch of extra mass, and that backfired because his body wasn't able to handle the added weight. Adding and subtracting weight is more detrimental for these big guys than it is for you and I. Even when we gain a bunch of weight, our bodies cannot handle it, even if we just sit at a computer all day. When you are that tall, you are naturally heavier already.

    I remember Kobe bulked up and it hurt his game a bit, he ended up losing the weight again.

    I think this will be good for Hibbert. Yes, he needs to improve on his skills, but those are actually pretty good, he needs to improve his mobility more.

    I really like these two. They seem to enjoy each other as well..

    I don't know if Smits put on the weight intentionally, but I believe you are right. The weight helped play into the problems he had with his feet/ankles. Typically the added weight hurts the legs and back the most. Two areas that he definitely struggled with.

    I don't know that it hurt his mobility either way because he never had a whole lot of it.

    Conventional wisdom in Rik's early years was that he needed to gain weight/ muscle. Dr. Jack, Daniels, Q-tip head, Bo and Donnie all encouraged him to do so. He was proabaly up to about 265-275 at one time.

    Then Brownie showed up and said, "lose 20 pound, you're not mobile enough." And during the Larry Brown days, after he dropped back down to about 245, Rik Smits was a legit low-post offensive threat with speedy spin moves from either bock. Unlike the Larry Bird era, where he was a 7'4" SG standing on the wing or high post waiting on a pass. But that was because his feet were killing him. If you've had plantar fasciaitiis, you know how that feels and the more you weigh, the nastier it gets.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
