Roy Hibbert is the man.
Roy Hibbert is the man.
We are very lucky to have a player as humble & as fun as Roy Hibbert on our club. He has been great on the court but he is even a better rep. of our club off of it.
Also as a side note Vince Cillini (sp?) said it best in the end, a big man this good in this day and age is worth his weight in gold. So how much is 270lbs of gold worth these days?
Love this guy! I hope he keeps his confidence up all year though, that's my only concern. Hopefully he knows everyone believes in him now, from his teammates to his coach to the fans. I hope he is a Pacer for a long time!
I'm hoping Roy gets what noah or Horford got (or less). I think he can be better than both, though, if he keeps this up all season.
As I said after the game last night, as much as Roy's success with the current weight gain seems to be a slam against the previous coach, I firmly believe that the order (lose the weight first, then work on putting the muscle back on) was VERY important. By losing the weight he did, Roy got a LOT more control of his body and a better idea of what he SPECIFICALLY had to do to get better from that point. I would say that trying to lose only the exact right weight and maintain muscle in the exact right areas would have been frustratingly hard, especially if he continued to have problems with his body control during that time.

looks like a good big man is more valuable than gold.
man, i wish i had been born tall, and skilled, and talented . . . instead of good looking.
edit: evidently there are only 12 troy ounces in a pound. which makes the total $5,330,253.61. guess that should be tall, skilled, talented and smart . . . instead of good looking.

Damn Roy never passes up a chance to bash JOB cant say I blame him though.
5 and 67mil? who Danillo think he is Lance Stephenson?
In a serious note, yeah that's crazy, he is going to command more money than what they gave Nene?
If he keeps it up he's better than Nene and Marc Gasol, and will be payed at least as much as those guys.
Roy is doing what he's doing now without really being a primary focus in the offense. It isn't stats with Roy, as you and I know he's radically better than i've really ever seen him, and he's doing it on both sides of the ball.
Plus Roy isn't the kind of guy to pack it in after getting payed, i'm comfortable with a big contract for him. At 7'2 he's going to get a bit below the max, hopefully we can get a hometown discount, but he's our most important player on a team that looks to be very good, and should be payed as such. Maybe even the max if Tyson Chandler and Nene were thinking about getting it last year in their wildest dreams.
Roy's absolute floor for a contract at this point looks like what Nene got in Denver and my guess is it will take more than that.
don't forget, roy's max is 25% of the cap. 25% x $58M = $14.5M base salary for the first year. 7.5% raises = $1,087,500 making the 2nd year 15,587,500. 3rd yr $16,675,000 and the 4th $17,762,500
all that adds up to 4yr/$64 or $65M.
it's a living
Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
"A player who makes a team great is more valuable than a great player. Losing yourself in the group, for the good of the group, that’s teamwork."
Yeah I'm saying 5/50 because that's what Marc Stein tweeted few days ago while he was watching a Pacers game, he said that he asked a bunch of GM's in the league and they told him around 10mil a year.
I saw that interview last night, great stuff. They are right, Pacers are gonna have to pay the dude a lot.
Also, the extra muscle is really helping alot. I have seen Roy grab a few rebounds in Dale Davis fashion this year. I've never seen that from him before. There was one in particular last night that got me extra excited. Roy seems a changed man, I am becoming a believer again.
