    Default Who's worth more - Hibbert or JaVale McGee?

    I'd be fine with that. I know JaVale has basketball IQ issues but after his trade to Denver, where he received good coaching and played with mature players for the first time in his career, he produced very well.


    2011-12 STATS

    PPG - 11.3
    RPG - 7.8
    FG% - .556
    APG - 0.5
    BLKPG - 2.16
    STLPG - 0.57

    Regardless of whether or not the Pacers match or if they make an offer to JaVale whether Denver would match, who has the greater upside/potential? I doubt he'll ever be a 20 ppg scorer but I doubt Hibbert will be either. I really think that JaVale could develop into a Tyson Chandler type of Center. What's Hibbert's ceiling? How close is he to it now?

    I really don't have any idea.

    ...is this a joke? McGee isnt even an effective starter. His time in both Washington and Denver proved that.

    Kaman is a proven starter, but like McGee he is a plus player on only one side of the floor. His age and health are also a concern.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Forget the stats, have you ever seen McGee play? Might be the dumbest "basketball player" I've ever seen.

    I'd take Kaman at a cheaper rate so that we can have $$$ left over to go after other Players.

    Sign McGee and lose Hibbert or have every thread on here be about Hibbert and/or Gordon for the whole season?

    Hibbert.

    And Just say NO to Kaman! (at least until Hibbert is locked in as a Pacer)

    If we lose Hibbert and JaVale is open to a contract under 10 million per, I'd guess I'd consider it. Would probably have to move to a more perimeter-oriented style though.

    Either way, we'll have half the threads on here be about Gordon for the whole season. We could somehow sign him without losing PG and half the threads here will STILL be about Gordon, 100% after the inevitable injury causes missed time.

    I'll admit, I chose a gotcha styled titled to get you to look at this thread. I know Hibbert is the better player now but will he be in 2-3 years. I still see potential in JaVale. He's working with Hakeem this summer and can still develop his offensive game. He's only 23 years old.

    He had a 21 points and 14 rebounds game against the Lakers during the playoffs. He had another 14 rebound game and a 15 rebound game in that 7 game series. In fact, I think he played a big role in extending the series to 7 games against the Lakers.

    I'm intrigued by player A but I still like player B better, player C wouldn't be a bad choice either, now if we can somehow have players A+B+C together I'm listening but we would probably have to trade player Z, player A is a nice player though but I'm not 100% sure about him.

    Javale isn't quite as bad as people think, obviously he has some BBIQ issues and is very raw, but he has a lot of potential. Wouldn't be a terrible addition for the right price.

    That said, he is no where near Hibbert.

    In the way that ESPN makes players who provide "highlights" seem better than they actually are, ESPN makes Javale Mcgee seem worse than he actually is because of his "lowlights".

    I prefer Hibbert over both McGee and Kaman, but people need to stop pretending he is a great defender. He blocks a couple shots per game because he is the tallest guy on the court, but he is slow to rotate, does not hold position very well, and falls down every time a guard gets near him. He's basically Shawn Bradley minus 4 inches.

    The ONLY thing McGee does better than Hibby is how he goes up with ball much quicker, doesn't hesitate.

    But McGee's Game 5 performance versus the Lakers may still be fresh in mind.

    I'd be all about losing Roy if we could steal JaVale. JaVale has got a lot of talent and with good coaching will be a very good player.

    If Javale and Kaman could be had for 9 mil each, I'd take them both over Roy. 1 on 1 has to go to Roy without a doubt.

    On a side note: I wouldn't be hating Javale if Pacers picked him up. I'd love to see Javale and Cousins play here. Would be exciting.

    If we sign JaVale McGee, I quickly jump on the "**** it, let's start Plumlee" bandwagon. I cannot root for that dude.

    His BB IQ issues put a cap on his potential. How much can you really get better when you don't understand the game on some fundamental levels (and if you don't by now...)?

    I don't want him. Would rather have Kaman if it comes to that.

    The ONLY thingS McGee does better than Hibby is how he goes up with ball extremely quicker, doesn't hesitate and has much quicker feet and runs the floor much faster and has more then 2 post moves that doesn't result in just hook shots because he is so much quicker on his feet he can beat his man straight up. How Javale can pick up help defense so much quicker and can play in and out cause he can actually move his feet. How he is a year younger then Roy and was deprived from good coaching with the generals.

    But McGee's Game 5 performance versus the Lakers may still be fresh in mind.
