Let's face it: There are a lot of things wrong with this team. Danny is a choker, our coach thinks too hard and he's an idiot, we don't have anyone to guard bigs, and our system is flawed. But in my opinion our biggest flaw is the negative production from Roy Hibbert.
Jim gave him the green light this year, built the system around him, and he's given him all the encouragement Roy could desire. After a strong first month of the season, Hibbert responds since he airballed the gamewinner at Milwaukee by doing this: 10.0 points, 7.0 rebounds on .395 shooting percentage. I've heard enough excuses.
That is miles beyond pathetic. People complain about how bad Solomon or Posey has been but quite frankly they are disregarding Roy's awfulness. At what point is it not a slump? A couple more weeks, a year? He was 1-8 last game and he was 1-2 this game and he couldn't guard anyone to save his life (its not like he tried either).
When the focal point of the offense consistently sucks what in the world do we do? Give him a month off, trade him? I'd be more patient and just give Hibbert a bench role (about 15 minutes a game), but this is scary. I don't think this is a slump. Hes lost it all.
This isn't Jim's doing. This is Roy's. Roy if you read this I want to say that you need to get your panties out of a bunch and grow a pair and quit playing like you're frightened to death. Enough is enough.
We have gone from having a mini three headed monster in Collison, Granger, and Hibbert that has some potential to nothing ever since Roy got owned by Bogut.
Am I being to hard on him?
