Thread: Hibberts respond to DJ versus DC

    Default Re: Hibberts respond to DJ versus DC

    Here are quotes from Hibbert and Hill about DJ.

    "D.C. was more of an attacking point guard, but I think D.J. can really penetrate and kick out," Hibbert said. "He gives you the illusion he's about to score in the paint and then finds open guys on the perimeter. I've never seen anyone with handles as good as him."

    George Hill, who replaced Collison in the starting lineup at the end of the regular season and throughout the playoffs, and was rewarded with a five-year contract following a solid playoff performance, views Augustin as another starter. Had the Bobcats not intervened in 2008, he might still be one with the Pacers.

    "I love him," Hill said. "That second unit is going to be deadly with him leading them."

    I hope he is as good as the hype, and if so I hope he is ok with not being a starter so we can re-sign him.

    considering he's terrible at scoring in the paint, i wonder how often will someone buy that illusion in real games

    I think that is what he's getting at.

    Danny never really developed a comfort in the post which is why he isn't as efficient scoring there. Had that been a priority for him, you'd probably see him be a major threat in the post against nearly every 3 in the league, including LBJ.
    His efficiency on the block improved substantially over the course of the year. Since the beginning of last year was the first time I'd really post play from him, I'm hopeful that he picks up this season where he left off last season.
    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!

    Yes indeed. We had several conversations about this during the course of the season as it developed.
