    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?

    Dude I saw this morning where Arn Tellem is trying to get Danilo Gallinari 5 years 67 million, I'm assuming that the Nuggets (& anyone else will laugh at that). But my God if they think he is worth that, then what the hell is the max because that is what Roy will be getting.

    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.

    current price for gold is 1647.24 USD. x 16 x270 = 7,116.016.80 USD.

    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.

    Way, Way more than that.

    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.

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    i think nene has been in the league long enough to qualify for the 30% of the cap max. roy doesn't qualify for that.


    unless he wins the MVP or one of the other automatic qualifiers.

    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.

    I hope their right, because if so, i'd sign him to that contract for 5 years tomorrow and never look back.

    Yeah, but Nene didn't get his max deal.

    no he didn't, but IIRC, he did get more than 25% of the cap. and 25% is the most roy can get.

    Roy is getting more than 10 million a year plan and simple.. IF Marc Gasol got 4 years 57 million then Roys getting atleast 12 million a year and that number is going up if he plays this way all year.
